SCUMM: Zak McKracken - intro behavior + movement

Reported by: SF/adventureguy Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Zak McKracken


Zak McKracken German v2 DOS version tested with ScummVM SVNBuild from May 31st 2007 on WinXP

- Zak turns to the right in the intro after receiving seattle ticket instead of facing front.

- When Zak is chased by the hat and the noseglasses in the intro, they don't turn around simultaneously, the hat-glasses are following him longer before turning around.

- It seems that when you're clicking somewhere where Zak should go, you have to wait until he finishes moving before going elsewhere (e.g. when on at the airport when clicking first at the airplane exit and then on the ticket machine) . Seems to be like that in some parts of the game.

Those bugs don't seem to exist when running the game in DOSBox.

Please file one bug report for each issue next time, that considerably simplifies handling for us.

Atually, sev, we didn't ask a question yet to which the Adventureguy might answer... :)

I watched the entire intro using dosbox and scummvm side by side, and couldn't find any difference.

Then I played the game until the seattle cave (get cashcard, play kazoo... the usual) and Zak behaves normally, no need to "wait until he finishes moving" to click somewhere else.

I have made some more commits to the code which now seem to really fix the hat and the noseglasses completely (I have compared the coordinates with a debugger).

More testing of SCUMM1/2 games (Maniac Mansion or non-FM-Towns versions of Zak McKracken) is definitely welcome, just in case I broke something...
