The Dig, english version

If you stand in the Nexus and you start talking to brink
through communicator, the windows is "scrolled" to
another position in the nexus and makes it impossible
after the talk to do anything else in the room...

From bug #636303:
When the landing team leaves the Space Shuttle for the
first time in order to inspect the meteor, opening the
inventory and using the flashlight on the meteor causes
the screen to scroll to the left, all the way back to the
Space Shuttle.

I think I found another place where the problem is visible:
when you move down using that triangular "elevator"
to the dead alien in the pyramid), then once the cut scene
part ends (elevator moving down etc.), then the in-game
scene is moved to much to the left - it doesn't give a
seamless transition from the cut scene to the normal game play.

* I can't reproduce the nexus/communicator/brinks bug - do
you still get it with latest CVS?

* the bug near the start doesn't even require the
flashlight: when you are on the screen overviewing the
asteroid, showing the inventory then hiding it again causes
the scrolling.
What happens is that panCameraTo(0,0) is called. Not sure
why that would be done now, though.

If you want to trigger this nearly anywhere the screen can
scroll just right-click on where you'd normally left click to
scroll the screen and move in the direction. What happens is
the inventory opens and when you close it the screen scrolls
without the actors.

This can cause some interesting side effects. Like if you fly
your team to the asteroid and then right-click to scroll the
screen back to the shuttle. Then click by the shuttle, after a
short wait your miniaturized crew will fly over as they never
scaled back up to the proper size.

It would see right mouse is incorrectly triggering left mouse effects... ender, any idea on this one?

comment:8 Changed 16 years ago by fingolfin

No time to investigate this right now, but maybe the code in verbs.cpp, checkExecVerbs(), is not 100% correct for The Dig and that's the reason. Might be useful to check that against disassmbly <shrug>.

Erik talked about this one in a patch...

It could be the same bug as the one described in bug #716350
("DIG: Can't exit room!") and patch #733099 ("DIG:
Experimental camera fix"). I didn't make the connection
until you pointed it out though.
