Does this problem still occur? FYI, it works great in the german version of
Simon 2.

Is this a talkie version? Subtitles enabled/disabled? What OS are you
using?

comment:4 Changed 14 years ago by Kirben

The problem still occurs in the French version and I was told
it occured in the German version (In the past) too.
When the red dot moves, the red trail of previous path is
missing .The red trail of previous path, is only shown after the
next segment of Simon riding on the Lion.

Using Simon the Sorcerer 2 Talkie (DOS version).
Doesn't matter if subtitles are enabled or disabled.
Using Windows XP.

Indeed -- I accidentally tried this with the english version of Simon2.
Ooops, sorry!

Right now I am trying to get my german Simon2 to work.

It's very important to me that this bug will be fixed.
Unfortunately, you set it down to priority 1. :( I could help you
by telling you the exact file in the big SIMON2.GME archive
and the two bytes that are responsible for that difference
between English and Non-English version. Would that help?

Bit Flag 171 is used to display the red trail on map,
during the Simon's ride to goblin camp. But But Flag 171
isn't set by the scripts of non-English versions, causing
the glitches.

I added a work around for the problem, to ScummVM SVN.

Thanks for trying to fix it! The trail is displayed
correctly now, but the text of the travell scene is now
displayed with wrong text colours. Tell me if I should
attach a screenshot.

Can you tell me where the part is that you've changed?

Adventure Soft. changed the colors of subtitles during this
sequence, to give better effect in the Windows version.
ScummVM matches the subtitles colors of the original
Windows version of Simon the Sorcerer 2 exactly now.

It took some time until I could do this, but I've tested
now several different versions of Simon the Sorcerer 2 with
this map scene (both DOS and Windows if available).

Everything seems to work fine! The bug is now finally fixed.
Thank you, Kirben! You're the best!
