#3278 closed defect (fixed)

GR: Birds stuck in opening screen (Amiga version)

Reported by: (none) Owned by: SF/buddha_
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI
Version: Keywords: script
Cc: Game: Goldrush


ScummVM 0.11.0svn (Jul 1 2007 08:51:56) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 zLib MPEG2

The birds in the background of the opening scene in Boston are stuck. The won't move until one leaves the screen and returns. But even then they still get stuck in different places now and then.

Little not serious (script?) glitch

Does this happen with the original interpreter as well?

comment:3 by (none), 17 years ago

You mean playing the game on an Amiga?

Nope, everything (including the birds) starts moving as soon as the first scene comes up.

May be a timing bug (speed of the new interpreter compared to the old?) because the birds start moving after a real long time, but eventually get stuck again and start moving again and so on...

Therefore, my "weight loss to time spent exercising" algorithm in Fat City is totally hosed. On a fast machine, you may never lose weight, no matter how many hundred reps you do! [/quote]

OK, this is not the same interpreter (SCI compared to AGI). It's from a different series AND from a different coder, but still, sometimes the most weird idea is the right.

...and i'm full of weird ideas :-)

This issue occurs in the Amiga version of the game, the birds move normally in the PC DOS version

It seems the Amiga version uses an unknown test command 19.

Tried running the Amiga version of Gold Rush! with Nagi and it worked so took a look at Nagi's source code and it seems it doesn't know what the test command 19 does either but just evaluates it to false. So I tried the same approach and it seems to work. So this is a quick fix, I don't know what the command does in the Amiga executable so it is possible that this may still prove to problematic in the future.

This was properly fixed in the trunk by revision 30251 which implemented the unknown test command 19 (I named it unofficially as the in.motion.using.mouse-command).
