#2270 closed defect (fixed)

MANIACNES: Shortcut keys are incorrectly configured

Reported by: SF/dfabulich Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Maniac Mansion


Start the game from scratch. Select kids and skip the intro. Press F5 and look at the help for the "Main game controls". It claims that the keys are logically oriented, that Q is Push, A is Pull, and Z is give.

Press Q. You'll select the Push verb. Press A. You'll be selecting the Close verb, not the Pull verb as documented (and as would make sense here). Press T. Now you've selected Pull. Press Z. You'll select Read, because Give and Goto are, illogically, F and G respectively.

And, of course, none of the inventory hotkeys work, as documented.

I'm testing on Windows 2000, using Maniac NES (English US), ScummVM 0.8.0CVS (Oct 15 2005 21:10:23), Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 zLib MPEG2

Hmmm... (a) no time (b) it appeared to be not so trivial. Back to the pool for now.

The problem is that we assign the hotkey in o2_verbOps under the assumption that there are 5 verbs per row, but in MM NES there are only 4.

Fixed in SVN. Existing savegames will still have "wrong" shortcuts assigned until you use New Kid to switch to another kid (forcing a reset of the verbs).
