LSL1: Age Verification answer input not working

Reported by: SF/jakekusters Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGI

Game: Leisure Suit Larry 1

Description

I am running the latest SVN version (V.12) of ScummVM on the GP2X F200. Upon entering your age you are asked to answer five questions to verify your age. It is multiple choice and you have to select a, b, c, or d. I have tried tapping the answer with the stylus but that doesn't work, I tried entering the answer with the predictive text option and I get asked "What is c?" for example. I don't know whether this could be an issue further down the track for LSL1 or not. Apparently there are 150 questions that the game can ask so I found out the key combination to skip it which is ALT + X on PC.

Sounds like a problem with the GP2X port and its input system? DJWillis, what do you say?

Ah,

Not tried LSL1 but this does seem reasonable. The GP2X backend just makes use of the built in predictive text engine in AGI games. As that tries to make sense of the game state I can see why getting a simple A, B, C etc. out of it may be a problem.

I guess the simple answer here is to add an key combination to the port that simulates the ALT + X to bypass the copy protection. I am assuming the ALT + X was in the original engine otherwise I feel a tiny bit uncomfortable about skipping the copy protection. I have an additional request to add a mapping for F10 for the Police Quest AGI games on the GP2X so I will do this at the same time. Roll on a decent keymapper ;-).

Hasn't some form of skipping the copy protection been implemented in The Secret of Monkey Island? I found out the key combination to skip it on the net. Ok there is a slight adjustment to the original key combination to skip the copy protection, this walkthrough - http://www.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/917513/37398 claims that it is CTRL + ALT + X and upon further research it seems that it is actually CTRL + ALT + X. All the walkthroughs are of the PC version but for the VGA version. Maybe just put both keymaps in? :P

Update: I tried using that key combination to skip the copy protection using ScummVM on PC and it didn't work. Could it just be because it is running in ScummVM? I am yet to test it in DosBox.

djwillis, any news?

In fact this is not GP2X issue.

It would be nice if it was possible to click on the answers, but as far as I can tell that would be tricky to implement. It looks to me as if the question and the four answers are just one string. The question can be a variable number of lines on the screen, as can each of the four answers.
