SHERLOCK: Rose tattoo city map glitch

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sherlock

Cc: Game: Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Rose Tattoo


When you enter the city map screen in The Case of the Rose Tattoo, there is some sort of flicker that I think comes from the upper left section of the map being drawn, and then immediately the desired part of the map being drawn. It would be nice to eliminate that unnecessary redraw.

(It might also be nice to slow down the scrolling of the map just a tad, but that's subjective.)

If I understand correctly, TattooMap::show() will:

  • Display the map by calling screen.slamArea(). ("Display the built map to the screen")
  • Set _targetScroll to the desired position (saved from earlier). ("Set initial scroll position")
  • At the same time, it will set screen._currentScroll to -1, -1, which will force the sceen to redraw since screen._currentScroll != _targetScroll.

So is there really any reason for the initial screen.slamArea()? Removing that seems to fix the glitch for me. Like this:

-       // Display the built map to the screen
        // Set initial scroll position
        _targetScroll = _bigPos;
        screen._currentScroll = Common::Point(-1, -1);
