#5868 closed defect (duplicate)

KQ6 - Freezing when picking up nightingale's letter

Reported by: SF/yfrwlf Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: King's Quest 6


After picking up the letter and the speech is finished, the mouse cursor will stay a crown and the nightingale will still fly around but you'll be stuck and unable to move. Also, if you get too close to the snapdragons, you will freeze there and be unable to move as well. Probably a related bug.

I'm using Scumm 1.3.1. For KQ6, it says KQ6 version 1.000.00G, and this is the CD DOS version.

I tried this bug several times and I'd have the problem each time, but after creating a new game and doing the nightingale part ASAP, it no longer was freezing up at either of the parts mentioned in my bug report. It still happens in my old save game though. What a strange intermittent bug...

Perhaps this bug only shows up when you complete game objectives in a particular order?

One of these warnings may be the cause:

The attached game save is where the letter is on the ground waiting to be picked up. After picking it up, you'll be unable to move.

This is the same problem as in bug #3413301. It has been fixed in the daily versions, and will be included in the next stable ScummVM 1.4.0 release. Please, download a daily version from:
