#3403 closed defect

DOTT: Chron-o-john "rotor" missing (script bug)

Reported by: SF/coeins Owned by:
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords: original
Cc: Game: Day of the Tentacle


The animation of the Chron-o-john "rotor" and the "glowing" of the toilet are missing in some situations. Tested with DOTT Floppy/German and ScummVM/Win32 0.10.0 as well as 0.11 daily snapshot (9/13/07).

I've attached a series of screenshots to illustrate the problem. It should be reproducible with the following steps:

(1) Use Savegame with Chron-O-John already connected to power source. (The rotor on top should be moving) (2) Put an object into the Chron-O-John. The toilet starts to glow, the rotor disappeares completely. (3) Switch to another person and back. The rotor is moving again, but now the glowing of the toilet is missing. (4) Take the object out of the Chron-O-John. The rotor disappeares again. (Works with Hoagie and Laverne)

I don't think this is a serious problem, but i guess it shouldn't behave like this...

Hmm, are you sure that this is not how the "original" engine behaved, too? I am pretty sure I saw this being reported before and it turned out that this is just how the game behaves there. It might seem incorrect, but it's how they coded it.

So, somebody should test it with the original engine.

Finally I found the time to play the original engine. You're right, it's indeed original behaviour. I should've checked that before... shame on me.

OK, so we can either close this as won't fix, or add it to the list of "bugs in the original game which we can try to find a workaround for"... Seems DOTT and Sam have quite some of those, BTW ;-).
