SCI: QfG4 - Throwing daggers/rocks at the castle gate loses 2 daggers/rocks and can get game stuck

Reported by: lwcorp Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: original
Cc: Game: Quest for Glory 4

Description (last modified by lwcorp)

1) Each throw wastes 2 daggers/rocks instead of 1.
2) For daggers specifically, if you have exactly 2, it even tells you "you are down to your last dagger", then completely locks/freezes the game.

Tried via v2.7.0git2430-g139536ced1a (Sep 3 2022 04:02:45).

Thanks; this is a script bug in the original game. Setting to normal priority.

The buggy script pattern also appears in other rooms in various forms, so this one may take a while to comprehensively fix.
