KYRA1: Weird mouse pointer behaviour

Reported by: jvprat Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Kyra
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Kyrandia 1


When running the floppy spanish version of kyrandia (I
don't know if it also happens in other versions), the
mouse pointer behaves a little strange. It seems like
sometimes it doesn't draw correctly. I attach a
screenshot of one time it didn't paint well even when
stopping the movement. It happens both with normal
cursor and when I pick up an object. Each time it seems
to be cut differently.

Moreover, when an actor is talking (text written on the
screen), it seems like the mouse pointer gets lower
refresh rate, and you see the same effect described
above but now happening more slowly. Both effects
combined give a very strange feeling.

Let me know if you need more information (that I can
deterministically get).

Thanks for your work!

I can't reproduce it over here, I fixed some problems with
walking though, so maybe you could check if it's gone now?

The broken cursors (happen for me at least sometimes at the
very moment a cursor changes from one shape to another) is
probably a bug in the SDL backend. The cursor handling has
been going through some changes lately, and might not have
fully recovered yet.

That the cursor movement gets a bit jerkier while a
character is talking is probably because
waitForChatToFinish() doesn't cause the screen to be updated
frequently enough.

I've just recompiled it from the svn and it seems like the
cursor is always drawn well now (I'll see if it's also gone
in the daily snapshots). Now the only issue is the slow
repainting when an actor is talking.

Should be fixed in SVN now.

It works smooth now, but when the actor has finished the
talking animation and while there's no other movement in the
scene, the cursor is shown, even in cutscenes (when I think
it should mantain hidden if it was while talking).
Thanks for your work!
