SCI: GK1: French/Spanish CD SysLogger hotkey

Reported by: sluicebox Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Keywords: has-pull-request Cc:
Game: Gabriel Knight 1


This one's weird.

French and Spanish CD versions contain an active debugging hotkey, ALT+N, which brings up a series of unskippable bug-reporting dialogs and eventually writes files to disk and crashes non-release builds of ScummVM due to an uninitialized read. This hotkey is always active and not hidden behind the game's debug mode flag. I'm submitting a script patch to just disable it.

English and German CD versions didn't ship with this hotkey script, none of the floppies either as far as I can tell. Screenshot attached.

You don't happen to be an old Sierra developer? :p
I really wonder how you figure all of these issues out.

Very nice work once again.

We could of course also add a workaround for the uninitialized read, but I guess no one really needs this functionality.
