SCI: LSL1VGA animations too fast

Reported by: GermanTribun Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Leisure Suit Larry 1


System: Windows 10 x64
ScummVM: Newest 2.7.0git
Game Version: DOS

In Larry 1 VGA, the base speed on which the game runs is too high, resulting in animations - which are not regulated by the speed slider - to run way too fast. This can be very well observed inside Lefty's bar, where the ceiling fan is supposed to run slow and be clearly observable (right now it isn't) and the animations of the bar patrons do look ridiculous and repeat way too fast.

The problem most likely has hit a number of early SCI VGA games (I know it was fixed for SQ1 VGA in ScummVM).

Btw., for some reason the Detail slider always starts in the middle (while in the original it always was full on). Since that is annoying, is it possible to make sure that SCI games always have the maximum details enabled? After all, today's hardware can take it.

Thank you! I missed this game when patching the remaining speed tests. If the scripts think the machine is slow, they try to compensate by changing the speeds of many individual things in this game.

This doesn't change existing save games. You *should* be able to fix existing save games (English versions) with the ScummVM debugger commands:

vv g 101 1
vv g 169 3
vv g 3 1

Afterwards you'll have to change rooms. It's possible that those commands don't undo everything, this game sets a lot of things at the start based on the test result.
