SCI: SQ5 Walking out of bounds in the spaceship elevator

Reported by: Bill-Bull Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Keywords: original Cc:
Game: Space Quest 5

Description

While in the Eureka, when you take the elevator up from the POD BAY (pic.044), there is a brief window of time where you gain control of the mouse cursor and can walk around while "out of bounds". The game will transition as normal to the intended destination once the elevator rises, rendering this a very minor bug (but still a bug!). I have confirmed that this bug is present in Sierra's interpreter, using DOSBox.

*ScummVM versioninfo=2.2.0git8444-g7521cc5f9e
*DOS/English version of the game
*Save game is attached. To replicate, walk into the elevator on the right, and while riding it up, notice the "walk" cursor re-appearing and click outside the elevator to walk in the walls.

Summary: Walking out of bounds in the spaceship elevatorSCI: SQ5 Walking out of bounds in the spaceship elevator

Great find, and also a softlock:

  1. Open elevator
  2. Get in EVA pod (when cliffy is outside)
  3. Elevator door closes, user regains control
  4. Click closet on the left, chicken comes out, EVA locks up
