ELVIRA1: Buggy scroll arrows when mixing spells

Reported by: SF/kurufinwe Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Elvira 1


Using ScummVM 1.0.0pre043108 under Win XP SP3. The bug occurs with both the Amiga (English) version of Elvira 1.

In the kitchen, start mixing a spell. You have to choose a spell, which works fine. Then you have to pick the ingredients. If scrolling is necessary because you have many ingredients, scrolling arrows appear, but they're buggy. Obviously, there's a confusion somewhere between those scrolling arrows and those in the inventory, since:

1) they're on a black background, even though they should be on a greyish background (as is the case when selecting a spell to mix); 2) they don't work, and you have to use the *inventory* arrows to scroll the ingredients in the book, which makes no sense.

I'm attaching a savegame in the kitchen (name: bug1). The save was created with the Amiga version of the game; if I load it with the DOS version of the game, the bug also occurs.

I've tried it with build 43164, and the bug is indeed fixed (as well as the other two I've reported), but there's still a (very minor) graphical glitch.

Use the savegame I've already attached (it seems like I can't attach a new file now that the bug is closed). Ditch ten ingredients. Then, start mixing a spell, and start selecting ingredients.

What happens is that you originally have enough ingredients for the scrolling arrows to be necessary. But, as you start moving ingredients from the right page to the left page, the number of ingredients on the right page becomes such that the arrows aren't necessary anymore. The game then removes them (they're no longer clickable), but graphically they only get half-erased (only the left half).

(I'm not sure whether I should have added this here or just opened a new bug; sorry if that wasn't the proper etiquette.)
