#5901 new defect

GOB: Woodruff - Priest doesn't prevent you from taking the disk

Reported by: SF/rasbug Owned by: DrMcCoy
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Gob
Keywords: script Cc:
Game: Woodruff

Description

* ScummVM 1.5.0git694-gc699847 (Nov 18 2011 07:28:36) (was also in ver 1.4.0 and, I believe, in older versions). * English

With good timing it is possible to get past the priest, while he is still awake, thus skipping part of the game. To reproduce bug you should load savegame from attachments, enter the sect, wait for a time about 0.5 seconds and then click on area in front of ceedeerom. Then priest won't prevent Woodruff from getting there. I guess the following may be the cause: priest usually prevents you crossing some spot on floor. But with good timing you cross it, when someone chanting "Scnibble" and script can't handle two events at the same time.

I never played the original game, but maybe this is also a relevant bug: after Woodruff levitate, sectants stop chanting and wait for him to enter the initiation chamber. But if you exit the sect and then return back, they start chanting again. And you can chant with them once again and levitate to make the priest press his button (this, by the way, repeats animation of mechanical dog sliding in the floor).

If they don't start chanting again, then it wouldn't be possible to get in front of ceedeerom before they asleep (if my guessing is right).

In this bug a similar issue is described https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1975099&group_id=37116&atid=418820 .

Also attached a savegame, where you're standing in front of ceedeerom, and sectants are awake.

rasbug: Thank you for this bug report. A Gob engine developer will look at this issue which is likely a script issue in the original game (though we may be able to add a workaround). Please be patient.

If you wish to help expedite this bug, it would help if you could run the game under Win32 and see if this occurs with the original interpreter? If you could then report the outcome here and attach savegames from the original interpreter to aid investigation. Thanks.

tdhs: Yes, the bug is also in original game. Savegames are attached in archive SAVE.zip .

There are also some other bugs in original game as well as in ScummVM. Should I post them?

1) You know the weather channel code as soon as you take tobozone, But it looks like you are supposed to read the code in the bar of friendship.

2) When you talk to the owner of virtual travel for the first time he tells you: "You've got me with your rock. I've lost my chest because of you.", while his chest is still standing behind him, he is supposed to tell this after you give him a piece of meteorite and chest falls down. Funny, but it looks like that's the case only in English version (no such bug in German version, judging from youtube walkthrough).
