HOPKINS: Teleporting Samantha after cutting cable

Reported by: SF/greencis Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Hopkins
Version: Keywords: script
Cc: Game: Hopkins FBI


ScummVM 1.7.0git37-g94fd380 (May 13 2013 07:33:04) Hopkins FBI Win95 UK version

In Purgatory, when you're playing for the clone of Hopkins, you can cut the cable of the teletransporter with knife. After cutting the cable, you go to Samantha and order her to go to the teletransporter room. Then, while Hopkins is teleporting Samantha, you can see UNCUT cable. And after teleportation there is CUT cable. This bug occurs in the original, too.

Makes sense.. cutting the cable is meant to prevent the teleporter from working, so the game should ideally prevent you from cutting it before Samantha has been returned to Earth, since otherwise she'd be trapped in Purgatory.

As this is an original game bug, fixing this would require a much better understanding of the game's script engine, not to mention the fact there may not even be any text or voice sample that could be used to indicate to the player that they 'shouldn't do that yet'. As such, I feel comfortable marking this as a "won't fix" bug.
