CGE: Soltys freezes when pressing F1 in the intro

Reported by: windlepoons Owned by:
Priority: low Component: Engine: CGE
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Soltys


If you press or hold the F1 key after starting Soltys during the blue LK AVALON intro, or afterwards in the Soltys intro, the information dialogue about the game appears. This cannot be clicked away and you have to close ScummVM.
Same problem in Sfinx (CGE2).

Normal procedure

Press F1 during the game, the information screen appears with three dialogues that can be clicked away.


Disable the F1/Information dialogue during the blue LK Avalon and Soltys intro.

Tested with Sołtys (Freeware v1.0/DOS/English) and latest git master. I can replicate, but it is possible to close the F1/Information dialog. You hit Escape to close it and I was able to continue to the game start.

I would suggest just adding code to allow exiting the dialog with a mouse click as well to avoid any user issues, but this is a pretty minor issue.

Same with Sfinx (CGE2). You have to hit F1 to get the dialog up... hit ESC to close it.

Have lowered the priority as I suspect this is as per the original game engine.
