CMI: Regressions after recent animation fix

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM

Cc: Game: Monkey Island 3


The recent fix for Wally's hook / floating head (thank you thank you thank you!) seems to have caused a few regressions with old savegames: the subtitles are gone, characters are not moving their mouths and at least with one older savegame spoken sentences were being cut off.

So far, it does seem to work when playing from the beginning of the game, so it's not a major regression. It's something we're likely to get bug reports about, though...

Could you attach an old save game for an example ?

Older savegame at the barber shop

comment:3 by eriktorbjorn, 20 years ago

I've attached two savegames: one I made yesterday when testing my (rejected) fix for the animation glitch, and an older one (I don't remember when I made it) at the barber shop.

It's the latter that has cut off speech.

Looking at those changes, the regression isn't a big surprise: things are now setup and used in a somewhat different way; but of course old savegames will still follow the old scheme.

A potential workaround would be to up the savegame version; then add "conversion" code to the load code which tries to setup VAR_HAVE_MSG in V8 games, for example...

I'm not sure what exactly is going wrong in those save games, anyone else want to try at conversion code ? Odd point is none of the save games I have show any problems, even though they range up to a year old.

It looked like the stopTalk() call in CHARSET_1() was cause of the speech cut offs and missing subtitles but I don't know why....

The regressions were not related to animation fixes at all. The cause was adding support for VAR_DEFAULT_TALK_DELAY, since we never set it to default value before. I was looking in wrong places. I will bump save game version and commit fix.
