Description

In the title screen, the left half of the "press any key to start" and "press F1 for menu" does'nt print on screen, while the right part of the caption may or may not appear; when I press any button, the whole caption appear for half a second befor fade out.

This bug is nice to get fixed before the release. Raising priority for keeping the track.

Does this happen when starting this game with ScummVM for your PC/Mac too?

comment:5 by SF/aculotarpa, 11 years ago

Both PC and MAC Intel port run fine, only the Wii port is affected

Brief answer this time, sf.net just ate my lenghy comment :(

Problem: tinsel updates the screen in a loop (background.cpp). The Wii port limits its frame rate, just like described here: http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/HOWTO-Backends#updateScreen.28.29_method

That results in skipped updates, which is exactly whats happening here with the cutted subtitles.

Attached a proposed patch, that moves screen updates to the end of a batch update (incl. a update call in a palette func). Before commiting and backporting, I'd like a tinsel maintainer to look over it ;) tinsel on Wii looks fine with this patch.
