#3691 closed defect (fixed)

SQ2: Text prompt glitch

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Space Quest 2


Current SVN snapshot English version of the game

I guess this is actually two separate bugs, but...

Near the end of the game, you're supposed to enter a code to abort the clone launch. On this screen, the game does not draw any text prompt. If I hit Enter, the game draws a "-" prompt. I think the prompt is actually supposed to be "-->". At least, that's what _game.strings[0] contains.

I haven't verified this with the original interpreter. I thought I saw a screenshot somewhere that showed the full prompt, but I can't remember where.

This looks very similar to the bug #1875076 "AGI GR: Input prompt not changing in outhouse" although from a different game, of course.

What buddha_ said is correct, the bugs in the two bug reports are actually caused by incorrect handling of nonstandard text input prompts. I've fixed this partially with commit #31477, however it seems that the text prompt is not correctly updated sometimes - currently, it's updated when the prompt changes and there is already a prompt on screen, which is not the correct way of updating it
