#4719 new defect

SCUMM: MI2 Dancing Skeletons cause Game Loop

Reported by: (none) Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Monkey Island 2


I'm using the 1.0 version of Scummvm on a Cyclods card and an apparently old(according to this bug tracker) problem has shown up.

When you hit your head by the big tree and start dreaming, your parent's skeletons only sing the first verse and just dance and dance.

Just thought I'd mention it because no one else has.

It's one of those bugs that is mentioned every now and then, but which no one has found any reliable way of reproducing. A few examples:

Last time I looked at the game script, it seemed to me as if it was supposed to trigger events on certain "beats" of the song. Is it at all possible that it somehow misses the exact beat it's waiting for?

Another new report of this on Android as Bug #3527235 "SCUMM: MI2 Dancing Skeletons Game Loop": Have closed that bug as duplicate and redirected the reporter here.

Report detail: During Monkey 2's skeleton dance I get a loop and I cannot advance. Skeletons continue to dance without and end.

Scummvm versione 1.4.0

Device LG Optimus One, android versione 2.3.3 V20g

Am attaching the replication savegame from that bug to this artifact.

N.B. Original bug reporter was on NDS with Cyclods, but looks like this bug affect various platforms so have removed the platform caveat.

I can confirm this bug it's again present AGAIN in the latest daily build: On my One Plus One i have installed this:

I have installed the scummvm plugins and main apk..... and after i have played a ITALIAN VGA CD VERSION of Monkey Island 2: 1) When the skeletron start to dance..... Guybrush remain astonished to watch the dancing. 2) The skeletron begin to sing the song..... until the first verse it's all ok!

At this point the animation goes in loop.... i have played and finished so many times this games... at this point: 1) Guybrush pick the paper this fluid and start to write the text of song in it. 2) Guybrush appears to start a ballet during write on paper

ON ANDROD The games goes in LOOP... guybrush never start to wrote on paper and the skeletron continue to swipe from right to left whitout end.... LeChuck never appears etc etc.

For exit from this LOOP i need to use the SKIP button..... after tap this on back LeChuck Appears and i can continue to play the rest of the games whitout any problems.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
