Description

ScummVM 2.1.0git4278-gd31e37683c (Dec 13 2018 04:20:25)
Windows 7 64bit
QFG4 CD (English)

Create a new rogue character.

In the room (644) attached to the lower door of the bat-infested stairway...

Click HAND on either door. Choose "Open".

The narrator will say it won't budge.

Then the UI will become largely unresponsive except to allow bringing up the control panel. The speed slider will be locked as if a script got stuck.

I didn't have a savegame to test the original interpreter. I expect it happens there, too.

Occurs in the floppy edition under ScummVM, and its original interpreter, too.

script 644 - leftDoorTeller::sayMessage()

(if (== g125_myClass 2)  # Rogue.
	# "The door won't budge -- it's locked."
	(g91_gloryMessager say: 3 6 9 1 0 640)
else
	(self clean:)
	(g2_myCurrentRoom setScript: sOpenTheDoor)
)

rightDoorTeller says the same thing.

That 0 arg to say() is a null caller. That means the Teller will not be cued after the message disposes.


This is different from other rooms, where - besides not getting stuck - the menu reappears after the message.


script 662 - leftDoorTeller::sayMessage()

(if (== g125_myClass 2)  # Rogue.
	(super sayMessage: 3 6 9 &rest)
else
	(self clean:)
	(g2_myCurrentRoom setScript: sOpenTheDoor)
)



The bugged room is the only place where "say: 3 6 9" occurs.

Here's why the cue is important.


script 23 - Teller::doVerb()

# ...
(= loc6_couldInput (User canInput:))
(= loc7_couldControl (User canControl:))
(User canControl: 0 canInput: 0)
(while (not (self respond:))
)
# ...

script 23 - Teller::respond()

# ...
(self sayMessage:)
# ...



The following doesn't happen...


script 23 - Teller::cue()

# ...
# local0 is set by TellerIcon::select().
(if local0
	(= local0 0)
	(= g194_myCurrentTeller 0)
	(self clean:)
	(return)
)
# ...

script 23 - Teller::clean()

# ...
(if loc6_couldInput (User canInput: 1))
(if loc7_couldControl (User canControl: 1))
# ...



Teller needs to reach clean() to return control to the player.
