#2512 closed defect

SIMON2: Castle guards and gate are bugged

Reported by: SF/jassemon Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords: script
Cc: 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.

ScummVM version used: 0.8.2 and 0.9.0svn (Feb 27 2006 17:24:37)

Game version: English DOS CD (talkie)

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 Castle.

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?
