#6054 new defect

HUGO: Whodunit? - Priority glitch with Parrot

Reported by: raziel- Owned by: Strangerke
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Hugo
Version: Keywords: draw order
Cc: Game: Hugo

Description

ScummVM 1.5.0git (Jun 18 2012 16:51:00) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 RGB zLib Theora AAC FreeType2

In the scene pretty much at the beginning when Penelope enters the office with the dumbwaiter (behind the bookcase door), there is a parrot sitting in it's cage.

When Penelope enters the room the scene switches to the office showing the hidden door open from bottom to top, Penelope pops in the room and the door closes from top to bottom.

The parrot is partly cut out from the opening door and will be drawn right again when Penelope's sprite is also drawn inside the room. This seems to be a priority issue affecting the whole space of the opening door erasing all sprites as long as the door open animation is running.

Penelope's and the parrot's sprite are next to each other so it should be possible to erase only the part where penelope is standing and leave out the parrot?

Err, i meant to write "update only the part where Penelope is standing" not "erase"

Thanks for the bug report. As your previous bug report indicated: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=3292383&group_id=37116&atid=418820

Hugo2 has a number of priority (z-ordering) glitches, so please don't report further glitches, but just add them to this current bug, as they may have the same cause.

If you have time, could you play through Hugo2 under DOSBox with the original interpreter and see if these two glitches occur in the original? Also, attach original interpreter savegames at the relevant point to help comparison with ScummVM. Thanks.

This bug is nice to get fixed before the release. Raising priority for keeping the track.

Sorry, I can't reproduce. Could someone confirm if it's a BE only problem?

@raziel does this still happen on Amiga? I can't reproduce on other systems

comment:12 by raziel-, 13 months ago

@tag2015

Yes, it does, same savestate, same command and screenshot also still applies

@dwatteau

Could you cross check on your BE setup?

comment:14 by dwatteau, 13 months ago

@raziel-: No need to, I *can* reproduce the bug on a regular little-endian system (macOS x64 12.6.3).

The glitch only appears when the door is opening though, that's maybe what's been missed in tag2015's test above.

Still can't reproduce. Here's a quick clip I made just now on Win10 using the OpenGL backend

Did you try starting from the beginning instead of reusing an old save?

comment:16 by raziel-, 13 months ago

I added the save state just for convenience.

I always start the game fresh since the glitch happens right at the beginning
