SIMON: Inccorect behavior in scripted actions

Reported by: SF/redgeneral Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Simon the Sorcerer 1


There are two instances when the scripted actions do not seem to work correctly

Situation 1 - minor

on entering the apothecary, to give frogsbane to the druid, you find that there are two Simons on screen for a second next to each other at the door. The situation then clears and Simon automatically gives the frogsbane to the druid. - Game continues normally

Situation 2 - major (game not compliable)

In sordid’s castle, in the garden section, after attaching hair to the tap I proceeded to add oil from the seed. When Simon did this and returned to the bank, the animation jumped to the beginning and he applied the oil again [he should only have done it once].

Then I pulled on the hair to turn the tap (creating the relevant animation and adding water to the puddle).

Upon trying to cross the puddle, the boat ran aground (something it is not supposed to do if the tap had already been turned [as I had done]). On returning to the tap, it was back in its original position but the hair was in the final position (so now it appeared to hang in space). The tap cannot be turned again.

The game is now no longer completeable as you cannot cross the puddle.

I have attached my save file from immediately after the incident (situation 2) - I don't have a save file from immediately before the incident

Please always file one seperate report for each issue you encounter. Otherwise, it becomes difficult for us to track them properly.

As for issue #1, I vaguely recall hearing about that before, and IIRC it's an issue of the game script's, so nothing we'd fix.

In any case, Kirben probably can say more about each of these issues.

Issue #1 is triggered by a certain events, and usually occurs in original version too.

The other two issues don't occur in the English version, so could be corrupt data files or script error in the French version. Have you tried copying the data files again from the French section of the multi-language CD?
