COMI: Subtitle problems in Act II

Reported by: SF/shirasuwanum Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Monkey Island 3


In Act II of COMI with scripting enabled, just past the
lemonade stand, no scripting occurs, or is fragmentary.
This applies to both scripting of speech and script that
identifies objects. In the case of speech, either no
script or a script fragment will be displayed. In the case
of object identification, placing the cursor over a "hot"
object (chicken cage, epicac plant, intercom, etc.):
should cause script to appear that identifies the object;
but there's no script. This problem occurs elsewhere in
COMI, but is particularly bad in this location.

To reproduce: Enable scripting. In Act II, make Guy
move past the lemonade stand. Place the cursor over
various objects. No script will appear. I've attached a
save file.

This occurred on Win32 version, using the daily
snapshot of January 19, 2004 4:53 PM. Talkie version
of the game in English.

Maybe you mean "subtitles", not "scripting" ? Scripts are what
control the whole game, and there is no way to enable or disable

Sorry, I did indeed mean subtitles, not "scripts".

I can confirm this for German COMI. Seems to happen on
horizontal scrolling screens if Gybrush is on the right side of
the screen. If Gybrush is on the left side the subtitles are
complete. Also the Answer List is affected. Nice to see during
Sword Fights on the ships: If Guybrush is in the lead (=> fight
moves to the left), the sentences are complete, otherwise
they are truncated.

Sounds like a regression due to my recent NUT font renderer
changes. Will look into it once CVS works again.
