Ultima IV: 2nd combat instance applies Quickness to all party members

Reported by: bliznik Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: low Component: Engine: Ultima
Version: Keywords: Ultima IV quickness combat second

Description

This is a bit of a niche bug to trigger. Essentially, you need to have two enemies that are in position to attack your party serially back-to-back. The easiest way to trigger this bug is to approach the Shrine of Humility without using the Horn, as this triggers an infinite stream of Demon attacks.

The first combat instance is bug-free, but the second combat instance will apply Quickness to all party members. This means that my party members can move anywhere on the screen, and then attack--every turn. It's a beneficial bug to encounter, but it's still a bug and should probably be fixed in a future version.

Hmm, I didn't notice that this incident was closed. I encountered a similar instance of this occurring in the dungeons. If I enter a dungeon and move between two rooms that have enemy encounters back-to-back, the same bug will trigger.

I'm using the April 23 daily build. This can be seen most easily in Dungeon Hythloth (in Lord British's castle, just start a new game as a Bard (so you are near Lord British's castle), and use the cheats to get max stats. (Alt+S, Alt+E, Alt+I, Alt+M) Then go into Hythloth from LB's castle by walking through the walls and jimmy open the door. Descend all the way down to the 8th floor, head North through the poison field into the door to the north-east. Defeat the Dragons and then go to the room to the west. In this next room all of your party members will have the "Quickness" bug applied, where they can move anywhere on the map with impunity before performing an action.
