SIMON2: Castle guards and gate are bugged

Game: Simon the Sorcerer 2


When Simon talks to the castle guards and refuses to
pay the bribe (either you don't have the money yet or
choose not to pay) he normally walks off the screen and
back to the city. During the few seconds it takes for
Simon to exit the screen the mouse pointer becomes
active again. If you at this time click on the gate
Simon will walk right through the guards' axes and
presents his Royal Wizard ID card, regardless of
whether he has actually got it yet or not. Also if you
click on the ground instead of the gate you can stay in
the area and try to talk to the guards. If I remember
correctly, this was possible to do in the original
version also (staying in the screen that is, not
walking past the guards), however talking to them
should've triggered the usual 'have you got our money
yet?' dialogue. Instead in ScummVM this will produce
the line "I think I'll leave them to it, in case they
remember some more expenses." which would in the
original come up only after you'd paid them.
This can be easily reproduced by simply starting a new
game and going straight to the castle from the start.

I'm unable to reproduce the issue with ScummVM 0.9.0svn
under Windows XP Home Edition. As the mouse cursor isn't
show again, during the time it takes Simon to leave the

What system are you using ScummVM on?

Hmm, looks like the problem is in the data files from the
cd-version. I dug up old floppy version and it behaved
correctly, i.e. Simon walks off the screen like he's
supposed to.

Two versions of the English version of Simon the Sorcerer 2
(DOS CD) have been reported, so this might only be possible
in one verison.

Could you provide md5s of your data files?
