What do you mean with "erased"? He isn't drawn while in the dark place? That would be normal (there's no light). (Our game versions don't seem to be compatible, so I can't load your save)

About the poster: Apparently, there seems to be a bug with the palette code, probably the same that causes the menu recoloring in Lost in Time (bug #1995060).

> What do you mean with "erased"?

Sorry for the unclear description, i was in a hurry. Yes i meant when Woodruff disappears into the darkness.

What can i do about incompatible savegames, and what else might you need according to the bug report?

comment:4 by DrMcCoy, 16 years ago

Well, yes, the disappearing is normal.

There's nothing you can do about incompatible savegames, the offsets for where the information about what's in every screen is, apparently got moved around. I.e. for example, when entering the bridge screen, one version would load 10 bytes from offset 100, 20 bytes from 110, 23 bytes from 130; while another version would load these byte counts from offsets 500, 510 and 530. Or maybe even different byte counts.

Theoretically, you could enter every screen in both versions and write down what gets loaded and then write a converter of sorts, but that's pure madness, even if it were just one load for every screen and not around 20. And even then, it could just as well not work at all, as there's no guarantee that the information is the same.

For the sake of completeness, this also affects the blue description plate mounted on the upper center pillar.

It turns from light blue to dark blue and vice-versa when going into/leaving the dark area

This also happens in the original, moving to the wiki.
