SCI: KQ5 (FRE/ITA): 2nd dialog box in Crispin's house (109.scr) instantly closes

Reported by: aroenai Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: original
Cc: aroenai Game: King's Quest 5


During the intro ("Have you previously played King's Quest 5?") on KQ5, the second dialog box in Crispin's house advances instantly, this error occurs in the original interpreter for at least the French and Italian copies of the game. Spanish probably also affected, script is 109.

Text is:
"Crispin, pourquoi Mordack veut-il s'emparer de de ma famille ou de mon chƒteau? Que lui avons-NOUS fait?" spoken by Graham

Thank you for reporting this!

This looks to be a problem with sound 80, which is the music in room 109. The version of the sound that comes with these games, and the CD version, is missing a music signal that the script synchronizes with. Earlier versions of this sound had the missing signal. This wasn't a problem for the CD version as it has a different script to sync off of message audio.

Update: I've got a fix in the queue (a simple script patch) but first I need to track down a few more KQ5 versions to verify which ones it should be applied to. It's a messy situation because Sierra eventually noticed this bug but "fixed" in the wrong way.

This affects French, Italian, Mac, and English-Amiga. It can be tested by using the ScummVM debugger to warp to room 109, as opposed to sitting through the introduction.
