COMI: Banjo duel timing problem

Reported by: SF/gourry Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Monkey Island 3


ScummVM version: 0.7.0CVS (20 OCT 2004) and
previous ones.
Platform: WIndows XP SP2
Game: Curse of Monkey Island - English (US) / Windows

I noticed that banjo duel isn't working as original game.

In the original game was present a short timeout of
some second that allowed the player to choose the right
note to play between one automatic phase and the
other during one strofa.
Instead with the emulator only the first note could be
played, while the game does not give enough time to
play the second and it behaves like if the timeout was
I have also noticed that in some (random?) situations
the game does not leave time even to choose the first
It seems a problem of timeout calibration...

The problem is aggirabile playing notes before Guybrush
has ended to play... But it is really less fascinating... :-/

Savegame just before banjo duel

comment:1 by SF/ignalina, 15 years ago

This only happens to me if I fail the first attempt at banjo duel. The first
time it works fine, but if I tell the pirate that I want to try again, the next
time I won't get to play any notes at all. After giving up and challenging
him again at the barbershop, it will work again.

In my case it happens the first time too...
Really strange!

With the latest CVS (Oct 22 2004, 22:34:33) I can no longer reproduce

comment:4 by SF/gourry, 15 years ago

I tried it too (Oct 22 2004, 23:43:56) and the bug is still
present... Altough the situation is quite improved as the game
the first time allows you to play three notes. If then you tell
the pirate that wou want to try again, you can only enter
two notes.
It Really seems something related to a timeout not re-
initialized, but it's only a guess as I've never seen the source
The fact that on a different machine (like Ignalina said) works
differently is quite strange...

BTW, my machine is an Athlon XP 2600+ with mainboard Asus
A7V, 512Mb Ram SDR, Ati Radeon 9100, Soundblaster Live
5.1, Windows XP SP2.

Today CVS snaphot (31 Oct 12:02:25) seems to have cleared
this problem.

Thanks everybody for your work.

I have no idea what or who fixed this, but if it's gone, it's gone, and
we're all happy, right? :-)
