MM: accepts any number in places where a 4-digit number is required.

Using ScummVM 0.10.0svn (Aug 10 2006 18:46:14) with Enhanced English version of Maniac Mansion, on Debian GNU/Linux amd64.

Wrong codes are accepted for the safe (in Edna's backroom), the lab door, the radio station and the telephone in the library. I typed an arbitrary number (0000) and the safe and lab door were opened, the radio station contacted Space Police, and the library phone called Edna. This spoils the fun of having to find out the numbers yourself! :)

I suspect the problem is a collateral result of the "copy restriction" workaround (which LucasArts disabled in the Enhanced version of the game anyway).

Attached savegame has Razor in front of the lab door and Bernard in front of the safe.

I can't reproduce the problem. I'm not very familiar with Maniac Mansion, so I don't know how to find the correct codes, but I tried a couple at random, and none of them worked. Neither for Razor, nor for Bernard.

The problem has been reported a couple of times in the past, and then it has turned out to almost certainly be the result of cracked data files.

Are you sure you have original version and not some hacked one which you downloaded somewhere?
