#1356 closed defect (wontfix)

FOA: Weird story bug (also happens with original engine)

Reported by: SF/leerqbasic Owned by: SF/ender
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Indiana Jones 4

Description

Rather odd bug in INDY4, seems to me like there's a
story bug...load the attached savegame and follow these
steps to reproduce:

btw: you just got Sophia mad by saying that you're not
afraid of snakes, and she won't follow you. Obviously
she's stuck there.

* Go to the left to the waterfall
* Look at the waterfall
* Use the chain

You now left Sophia behind. There's no way of getting
back (you need the weight of 2 persons).

* Go to the left
* Go to the left

Indy sais "Not again"...now's the odd part. Sophia's
meant to push Indy down, but she's trapped. Well,
appearantly not!

* Talk to Sophia (she's still mad)
* Say "I'm sorry I was rude"
* Say "Come on, climb onto my shoulders"
* Say "You probably wouldn't fit anyway"
* Say "I just meant that..."
* Say "After a few days..."

Well, isn't that nice. They both end up running into
the wall, and Sophia's even managed to climb throught
it! Any thoughts on this?

Warnings I got:
WARNING: Code for object 640 not in room 51!

CVS version I used:

Would be nice if somebody checked for this with the original
engine. If it also occurs in the original, it's a bug in the data files
and not really our concern (it sounds as if it was, at least)...

Heh, amusing bug.

BTW, there *is* a way of getting back down there.
Hint: That statue in front of the elevator looks pretty heavy -
its head alone must weigh over a hundred pounds. And "It
looks a bit wobbly..."

Still waiting for somebody to check if this occurs in the original,
too...

Hi,
I am shocked to find that this bug exists in the original
game, the game exiting with the exact same error: "Code for
object 640 not in Room 51". The earlier games made by
LucasArts were bug-free, or so I thought. I just tested it,
and it is not a ScummVM bug. This bug occurs with both the
unpatched and patched versions (with indy4fix.exe). I hope
you try to implement a hack or patch of some sort so
unsuspecting players don't accidentally stumble across it.

There are no non-trivial bug free programs. Including all LucasArts
games :-)

Looking into this, it does not appear to be easily fixable. So I'm
going to close it as a "well, what can you do" bug :)
