#5268 closed defect (fixed)

Keyboard discrepancies in all SCI games

Reported by: OmerMor Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Police Quest 3

Description

Game version: (relevant for all SCI games I tested)
ScummVM version: 1.2.0svn52211
Platform: Windows7 32bit

In SCI games, when a keyboard button is pressed for a while, the character is repeatedly written (e.g. in naming save games).
Also, when pressing CTRL-C during text-editing, the text is erased completely.

Those 2 discrepancies combined has the following effect: in order to erase the full text-box, you need to repeatedly (re)press backspace.

I have tested this with PQ3VGA in DOSBox against the current ScummVM HEAD (r55128).

I agree that the original engine did what you describe i.e. typematic repeat and CTRL-C to clear text box, whereas ScummVM's SCI does not currently implement this behaviour.
