GOB: Goblins Quest 3 - Flickering cursor in "semi-cinematics"

Reported by: SF/warepire Owned by: DrMcCoy
Priority: low Component: Engine: Gob
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Goblins 3


The cursor flickers whenever there is a semi-cinematic like when freeing Bizoo in clouds. Savegame at Clouds with enough equipment attached.

To recreate the problem, use the Spy-glass to look at the Stain. Behold the flickering.

ScummVM build: 1.2.0 REV 52800 win32 Game version: Goblins 3, CD/DOS/v1.02 (English)

Yes, cursor glitches are a known problem, thanks to the engine not having proper cursorOn/cursorOff opcodes, but instead trusting that the area will be overdrawn. Since in ScummVM, cursors are handled separately from the game screen, this leads to glitches like this.
