ZAK256: Ending credits are illegible

Reported by: SF/dfabulich Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Zak McKracken


The ending credits overlap on top of each other, making them illegible. I'm including a screenshot and a saved game right before the end. (Just Pull the left switch to see ending.)

I'm using the FM-TOWNS version, with ScummVM 0.3.0b, Built on Dec 6 2002 19:31:17 on Win2K.

looking over script-139 and scummvm it would appear that the text overlapping behaviour occurs as we currently don't implement oldRoomEffect of 4.

can someone poke around the assembly and see what this is supposed to do?

comment:2 by fingolfin, 21 years ago

Actually we do support effect 4. But it seems Zak actually handles oldRoomEffect quite differently than what we do... maybe there should be a fadeout, text wiped, then a fade in?

I've tried the original engine, and there isn't any visual effect. It seems to instantly redraw the room picture.

Also, the text seems to be displayed differently. The font is thin and shadowed. But maybe it already works? My scummvm save game is old.

I put a fix for this into CVS. Font problems probably are unrelated and due to bad savegames (the one I have myself definitely is using the wrong charset, too).They should be filed in a seperate bug report should they still appear even with new savegames.
