DIG: Cursor disappears/game unplayable after adjusting lens
|Reported by:||SF/tbcarey||Owned by:||Kirben|
I remember this occuring haphazardly with any of the lenses, but I am able to reproduce the error faithfully in one specific location.
After fixing the broken panel on the map spire lightbridge control panel, Boston does not stop talking [mouth continues to move]. If you then attempt to use the control panel at least once [note: particularly without having adjusted the lens first] and it does not work, Boston will continue to move his mouth. Adjusting the lens after this causes the cursor to disappear entirely and renders the game essentially unplayable/frozen, although the background animation continues to play.
As noted above, this happens with any number of lenses throughout the game; if Boston adjusts them after having used the control panel once and failed, the game usually exhibits the above behavior, locking up.
I have attached a savegame at the point immediately before the lock-up would occur. Move the lens to lock the game up. If it does not occur the first time, move it several times and it should.
I'm using today's CVS build on Win32 with the English version of 'The Dig'.
