Reported by: mikesk8 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI
Keywords: Skimmer hangs 1.0x Cc:

Description

The game hangs:

  • not possible to type commands
  • Esc button triggering Pause does not work
  • F1 (Help) does not work
  • cursors not working
  • mouse not working

just before Skimmer (Kerona desert) arcade starts. After pressing Enter (or any key including Esc) on dialog "The settlement alien spokesman of appears on the horizon" (see screen 1) the skimmer disappears and game hangs (see screen 2).

Once hanging and you quit ScummVM you can briefly see the skimmer appearing on the screen before the game/ScummVM close.

I have tested the same in Boxer (Mac based Dosbox interface) and it does not hang there. It seems it is linked to ScummVM then.

So I assume that you own Space Quest 1 for DOS platform?

I just tried my Apple IIgs copy.
That one works fine, at least when using my previous play through saved games.

Yes, indeed; this is a DOS first version 1.0x and AGI 2.089 interpreter.

comment:5 by mikesk8, 11 months ago

As far a I know, there are 4 versions of DOS AGI SQ1: 1.0x, 1.1a, 2.2 (two interpreter versions). All of them have different interpreter version. I do not know much about Apple one apart of orange sky :)
