SCI: Lighthouse - Can't Put Umbrella in Gate Hole

Reported by: digitall Owned by: digitall
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Lighthouse

Description

Playing through "Lighthouse", I am unable to use the umbrella to jam the gate open. It looks like the game state may be invalid / broken.

Playing with latest master i.e. ScummVM 2.6.0git2049-g2d15dcefad3-dirty (Dec 20 2021 12:31:12) on Linux x86_64

To replicate:

  1. Load savegame. You will be in the save / load screen.
  2. Click "return to game"
  3. You will be in room 820 in front of gate.
  4. Click on gate to raise.
  5. Click on umbrella in inventory at bottom.
  6. Click on hole above gate and this should insert umbrella to jam. This is a timed event and tricky, but it appears impossible here.
  7. Gate slams shut again after a few seconds.

Assigning for visibility

I was able to do it like in this video: https://youtu.be/PrmNgq9EUtY?t=5725

Clicking the umbrella inventory item the first time brings it out and then clicking it a second time puts it away and switches the cursor to the umbrella, at which point you can click it on the hole.

@sluicebox: Thanks for looking at this. Yes, you are right. Once I did it in that sequence, the umbrella goes in fine. The online game guides for this are very vague.

Anyway, thanks again. Closing as worksforme.
