ULTIMA8: Disappearing Stepping Stone
|Ultima VIII: Pagan
This is for ScummVM v. 2.7.0, with the time stamp of Feb 14, 2023.
In Ultima 8, during the endgame process, you place a bunch of stones on platforms in order to raise stepping stones in the lava. Then, you're supposed to jump on the stepping stones to reach the next section of the game.
As you jump from one stepping stone to the next, the stepping stone is supposed to disappear back into the lava after you've jumped.
The very first stepping stone has been misprogrammed to disappear as soon as you land on it, instead of after you've jumped from it. This makes it very difficult to proceed in the game unless you have extremely fast reflexes.
I attach here a savegame at the point just before you jump onto a stepping stone.
