Flashlight glitch in Maniac Mansion Deluxe

Reported by: tag2015 Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


The flashlight does not work properly, showing a weird blue/green square overlay (probably an issue with transparency?).

The biggest problem here is that there is no way to revert to the normal state, it will follow the mouse pointer for the rest of the game, even after saving/loading.

Screenshots attached.

Steps to reproduce:
just "use" the flashlight

Seems like the save was made with the old codebase, and it's one of the few cases where the savegame wasn't portable. Can I ask you for a favor.. if you can't play through again with a latest daily build, and create a new savegame with the flashlight in the inventory?

The flashlight handling should all be fixed now.

There's still a little issue here.
If you turn off the flashlight in a dark room, instead of disappearing, the halo turns into a "donut" shape. It will stay like that if you exit and re-enter the room.

Steps to reproduce:
Just load the savegame I provided the last time and "use" the flashlight twice
