SCI: SQ5: Frozen Script

Reported by: SF/neosmagus Owned by: bluegr
Priority: low Component: Engine: SCI
Keywords: original Cc:
Game: Space Quest 5

Description

Game: Space Quest 5 (1997 SQ Collection CD)/English/Floppy
ScummVM: 1.2.0svn51537 (Jul 31 2010 23:47:33)
OS: Windows XP

Twice while I was playing I noticed the script freezing and not continuing to the next thing. But the game itself doesn't appear frozen, as the characters still go through their animations. Once was when I was supposed to find the Goliath. I arrived at Gingivitis, and WD-40 came on screen to tell me that the ship will appear in a couple seconds. At this point I'm supposed to cloak the ship, but even though all the animations and sounds continue, the cursor doesn't appear.

This happened again when I was supposed to fire at the Quirk Blob attacking the Goliath. When I sat down on the chair, the screen didn't switch views to the the 'behind Wilco' view, and just sat their with the characters doing their bored animations.

In both cases I used ctrl-brk to end ScummVM, and when I went back in it didn't occur again. I haven't been able to replicate it though...

Seems like a script/timer bug (these occured with Sierra's interpreter too sometimes), thus lowering priority
