ITE: Bee sounds continue too long

Reported by: SF/fancia Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SAGA
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Inherit the Earth


After lighting the fire at the beehive tree, the bee sounds continue
even after the bees have flown away. In the official interpreter, these
sounds stop as soon as the fire is lit.

I'm using the Mac OS X version of the game with a CVS build
compiled with GCC 4.0 on Mac OS X 10.4.2.

If possible, please, attach a savegame.

I've attached a savegame at the beehive with all of the items you need to
trigger the bug. Don't try to exit the area, however; I cheated my way there
with the magic hat.

I've found what seems to be an instance of the same bug, which occurs in
Prince's bedroom; the snoring sounds continue even after a squeaking
board and when he is speaking. It gives a console error, "WARNING: Slow
string encountered!!" I've attached a savegame for Prince's room.

Prince's room

This bug already existed in the original floppy version game
when playing in MS-DOS.

I fixed mentioned bug with sound in prince room.

Though beehive bug has completely different nature. I
believe this is because we play ire animation completely
wrong. I.e. sound stopping is most probably attached to a
particular fire sequence frame.

This is still present, but somewhat different now. The bee noises end after
the bees fly away now, but still continue too long because they are audible
in the period between when the fire is lit and when they fly offscreen.

What is the status of this item?

Don't get me wrong there, but isn't it the way it should be?

@fancia said the bee sound is NOW (2005-10-26) audible even
after the fire is lit upto the point where the bees have
flown off-screen, right?
Well, i'd be puzzled if the bees stop buzzing as soon as the
fire is lit, i mean, you can still see them flying away, so
you should still be able to hear them too, shouldn't you?

OK, @fancia said also, that in the original the sound from
the bees stopped immediately after the fire was lit, but i
think it's more "realistic" this way and maybe the immediate
stop of the sound is a bug in the original game anyway ;-)

Indeed, I think we could close this now, as the behavior seems sensible now... No?
