DW2: Duplicate Mad Drongo

Reported by: SF/meddlingmonk Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Tinsel
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Discworld II


There is sometimes a glitch with the Mad Drongo sprite. It's easily reproducible by saving in the high energy lab and then reloading. There seem to be three or maybe only two Drongos sitting on top of each other. Problem has always existed in SVN builds as far as I know but am only now bothering to report. I get the glitch on both PPC Mac and Intel Fedora 10, so this one isn't an endian issue.

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to
provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build)
* Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it
* Language of game (English, German, ...)
* Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...)
* Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...)
* Attach a save game if possible
* If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last
version without the bug, and the first version including
the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the
changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for
us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

This could really use some verification - I've not been able to replicate it with the English UK edition on Windows XP. Can I request you try recopying your CDs, just to make sure it isn't an accidental data corruption causing this problem? Either that, or if anyone else happens to have either a PPC Mac / Intel Fedora 10, could you check whether you can replicate the problem?

I've recopied the game data as suggested. I've tested by starting a new game and with the game currently being played. In neither case did the Mad Drongo sprite go strange. So either there was something corrupt with the files on my hard drive or it's an intermittent problem...but given that it was easily reproducible for me before, the former is probably the case. When I'd originally copied the game data, I copied it from disk to Mac hard drive, and from the Mac over to the Fedora PC, which would explain why both machines had the same problem.
