SCI: SQ5 : Script Lockup During Putting Banana in WD40

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

Description

Space Quest V: The Next Mutation (DOS/English)
(From Space Quest Collection CD)

To disable the Androidess WD40, you have to put a banana up her tailpipe.

If you do this just as she takes off, the scripts end up in a lockup state where you are still stuck in the log waiting for her to crash as you
no longer have the banana, but she has already taken off..

This was probably a bug in the original engine scripts.

Room 305.
Am attaching Savegame for Replication :
1. Load Savegame.
2. Click Walk on Log
3. Wait for Androidess to land
4. Click Through Speech
5. Just as she takes off, Click Banana on Androidess
6. Try to Leave Log. (You can't) :-(

This is already listed on SCI/TODO. Anyway, if you put it there immediately everything works just fine.

Yes, not a blocker.

Sorry, since probably script bug, I checked http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/SCI/Bugs#Space_Quest_5 but missed it on the TODO page.

This is a very extreme edge case to me, you need to be very quick and use the banana on her at the very moment she takes off (which happens almost instantly). I find this very hard to reproduce in an normal playthrough and it's a edge case of a script timing issue anyway, so I'm lowering the priority of this one
