#4620 new defect

GOB: Goblins Quest 3 - Duplicate main character sprite

Reported by: SF/kuroshiro Owned by: DrMcCoy
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Gob
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Goblins 3


In the level with Queen Xina, if you get the axe and toss it at the skull without knocking it down, the sprite of wolfy on the chair will stay there, and never disappear, even if you save/reload, or leave the room and re-enter.

Forgot to mention: Windows XP, tested on September 26th SVN daily snapshot. Game: Goblins 3 CD (Dos/English).

Just to clarify, because other users successfully finished the game. Could you please provide full md5s for all game files?

Raising priority. This is a release-critical bug.

It's the US cd version, v1.000. Not too rare I don't think. MD5s (not 100% sure I did this right, but I think so, it's the first 5000 bytes): COKTEL.IMD: fade03757211e69829168e619e4d1815 EXT.STK: bd7b3644f6e58c9ca1169d3cd3cd86ca IMD.ITK: 9099aa25bb3b47d7e407a78274fdff88 INTRO.STK: 6f2c226c62dd7ab0ab6f850e89d3fc47 MUS_GOB3.LIC: ee0af6ce71ed3f000cb967588e0c0c88 TOT.STK: a0360e074c7e1b4b5c10f3373b0e0e43 track1.ogg: 905221a72acd2bd380a09f8098809b32 USGOB3.ITK: 4ce0c35ecd426e029bd3e18fecc036f8

No, I need the full md5s, not just first 5000 bytes :)

Ok, one more time then. Also another note on this particular bug: the duplicate sprite will vanish if you pick up the axe on the ground, which becomes invisible when the glitch happens while the hotspot remains.

Just to note, the exact same files worked fine on previous versions of ScummVM to complete the game.

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

Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 RGB zLib MPEG2 Theora AAC A/52 FreeType2 FriBiDi JPEG PNG cloud (servers, local)

I can confirm the issue with above version of ScummVM.

Not quite though, i can make the doubled sprite vanish, by picking up the axe again. Though the axe sprite is not visible anymore after landing on the ground. If i click at the position where it landed it is still picked up and the doubled sprite is erased.

Another oddity which might or might not add to this issue is, that Blount refers to the 'skull' as 'cup-and-ball' in either clicking on it empty handed or when hovering the 'axe' in hand over it.
Maybe it's an american slang for a skull, maybe it's because the script that handles the throwing is broken and refers to another object in another room/scene, which in turn breaks the animation/sprites in this room/scene, not sure.

I have no idea if this behaviour also happens with the original binary.

Adding a duplicate for sake of completeness #6879

GOB3: Blount stuck in chair in Queen level


ScummVM: daily build, 1.8.0git4124-g6b3df0d Game: Goblins Quest 3 CD (v1.02/DOS/English)

To reproduce: - Restore the attached game - Use GUN on CUP-AND-BALL

What happens: - Were-Blount climbs on the chair - He shoots the gun - A voice-over: "It's not a game, it keeps moving!" - He shoots the gun a second time - He complains using gibberish sounds

After this Blount is stuck: he cannot move anymore, he cannot use items, and if you switch to Fullbert you can't switch back to Blount again.
