SCUMM: Remove continuity error in toupee scene in SAMNMAX

Reported by: GermanTribun Owned by: dwatteau
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords: enhancements
Cc: Game: Sam and Max


In Sam & Max, the scene where Sam swipes the toupee was changed when the CD version was being made, as can be seen here:

However, after the new animation is over, the CD version has a big continuity error, since Sam just stands there when Lee Harvey arrives. The ports should be open, Sam should have the arrows in his face and he should be putting away the toupee quickly before being scared at Lee Harvey's arrival.

If the needed data is still in the game, can everything right when the alarm does go off in the floppy version (when Sam already has the arrows in his face) be restored after the CD-exclusive animation?

I wasn't aware of this difference in the floppy version, thanks for sharing this!

This probably qualifies as the type of content restoration/continuity error fixes that we provide in the enhancements, now.

I'm not sure it's going to be easy to restore this animation if it's still there, but I'll try having a look at it some time. It may take me some weeks or months, though.
