Indy4 - Atlantis bugs

Game: Indiana Jones 4


I've found several bugs in the Atlantis section of
Indy4. Firstly, the easiest to repeat: when I fight a
german guard and die, I get the death screen with "You
discovered Atlantis but the nazi's won". If at that
point I press F5, or click both mouse buttons at the
same time, then the game crashes. Also, during the
fighting it might just be me, but I have real trouble
getting Indy to do anything but stand there or back
away - I can't seem to get him to punch.

Also related to the guard encounter, I've found that
running away from the fight causes a variety of weird
behavoir, including:
- Upon running away, I'd try to click in any
direction, but after a few steps Indy would suddenly
jerk back to where he had been
- Returning to the guard to fight again, Indy would be
continuously shaking whilst the game waited for you to
pick your retort.

The later one was easier to replicate - I haven't been
able to get the jerking to repeat itself yet.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm using the latest CVS
build with Indy 4 CD, on a Windows 98 machine.

Changing group/catagory to match new bug guidelines.

Some of these should be fixed now in the latest CVS.. let
me know what ones still exist. The F5 bug is still there.

Also, when fighting use the mouse (which in the latest CVS
is the default). Keyboard mouse-fighting doesn't work.

The new build seems better. I haven't been able to get any
of the problems to occur (excluding the F5 bug).

BTW: Speaking of the F5 screen, two minor questions:
1) Whenever I press the Enter key after typing in a
filename to save, the cursor always jumps down a few save
slots, rather than saving the file. Is this deliberate? I
thought it a bit strange
2) Although you can set the volume settings via the command
line, it might be worth slightly altering the Indy
defaults. Currently, the music almost totally obscures the
spoken voices. I have to keep manually setting the volumes,
or remember to include the appropriate switches when I
start the game.

Alright, I'll close this now, as the F5 thing is something
I've known about for a while and am looking into.

In answer to your questions.. 1) No, that shouldn't happen.
I'll take a look.

2) Yeah, the music SHOULD default to 60% instead of 100%..
but it appears to have been broken with the reorg. I'll
look into it :)
