I wasn't able to reproduce this with the English talkie
version. Though it could be that it only happens when
something goes wrong at exactly the right time, so it might
be helpful to know your subtitle and talk speed settings.

A savegame could be useful, too.

I think it does have to do with subtitle speeds, since when
I ran through at subtitle+voice with subtitle speed 2, it
didn't do it. But at subtitle speed 9 it did it again.

I must have missed when this bug report was updated. I still
can't reproduce it, though.

There are several paths through this scene, e.g. you can
give Doug the pecan candy even before you start talking to
him. Which one did you take? Was it speech+subtitles at
maximum subtitle speed? Skipped any parts of it? Etc.

The path through the scene doesn't seem to matter and the bug occurs in both
samnmax and in samnmaxa

To see the bug, give Doug the candy just when he reaches for more blue stuff to
put in his mouth. It's too late if he gets his hand back into the bowl again.

Here are some gamesaves when it happens:

What is the status of this item?

comment:7 Changed 13 years ago by eriktorbjorn

I finally managed to reproduce it, so it still happens.

comment:8 Changed 13 years ago by eriktorbjorn

The problem happens with the original interpreter as well.

Very good, then at least we aren't doing anything wrong :-)

Now we could of course try to implement a workaround for this, but that's of a
lower priority.
