GOB: screen jumbled after typing in level passwords

Reported by: (none) Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Gob
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Gobliiins

Description

After typing in a level password in Gobliiins in the 0.8.0
CVS build, every stylus tap results in blocks of pixels
shifting resulting in jumbled graphics.

I am on a Dell Axim X30H, and the same behavior was
reported by another Pocket PC user on a different brand
Pocket PC.

I had another problem after typing in a level password: When
the new level started, the mouse cursor was only half visible.
The game was perfectly playable and you could change the
mouse symbol (fist etc.) as it's supposed to be, but the lower
half of the symbol was always cut off. Btw, I was using 0.8.0
CVS build on a Windows 98 machine. I don't remember the
exact date, but it must have been a week or two ago.

I don't know whether it's an instance of the same problem or
something completely different. Unfortunately I wasn't able to
reproduce this bug, that's why I didn't file a bug report so far.

Had a quick look, this bug seems to happen when a mouse move
with no tap happens between 2 key presses. A temporary
workaround is to tap the mouse on another part of the screen
between 2 letters. I'll try to find a better one for the
release :)

More exactly : it will happen if the cursor is not in a zone
where it can be displayed between 2 key presses. To
reproduce it on Windows or another platform, go to the
"load" screen, move the cursor off screen, press a key, and
enjoy the garbled cursor :)

So this bug is not PocketPC specific, right?

I've made a small patch to fix this bug, with the great
help of sev (thanks!)

A proper patch would be to use OSystem mouse cursors. This
patch fixes the bug with the current code that draws the
mouse cursor

I've sent the patch to sev

The patch fixes it perfectly. Thanks, md5. Commited as is.

And yes, this is a temporary solution, as we need to make
the engine use OSystem cursors.
