#2713 closed defect (fixed)

HE: Palette glitch (recent regression)

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: cyxx
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Current SVN

In many of the HE games I have, there's a brief moment where the wrong palette is used:

Pajama Sam 1 Pajama Sam 2 Pajama Sam 3 Spy Fox 1 Spy Fox 2 Spy Fox 3

For all the games except Spy Fox 3, the glitch happens when the "It's a Junior Adventure" splash screen appears. In Spy Fox 3, it happens on the Infogrames logo screen.

I haven't figured out exactly why this happens, but it appears to have something to do with revision 23216, "Add cyx's patch for bug #1035739 - SCUMM/SMUSH: Ugly palette change when video finishes".

The glitch is not present in 0.9.0, thankfully.

The cause of the problem, is the location of updatePalette () in main loop has changed for earlier games.

Judging by original games, the correct location for palette update in main loop would be right after palManipulate().

Well, there was no good reason to move the updatePalette() call out of scummLoop().

So, we could just revert that part of the patch, but I think it would be better to match the original interpreters and, as Kirben suggested, move the updatePalette() call after the other palette functions.

If other regressions occurs, we'll then try to deal with them.

Patch attached.
