#6526 closed defect (invalid)

WME: 5LD - background goes black on decisions

Reported by: raziel- Owned by: lolbot-iichan

Game: Wintermute


ScummVM 1.7.0git (Feb 6 2014 15:42:12) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 RGB zLib MPEG2 Theora AAC FreeType2 JPEG PNG

On the two instances one has to decide what to do while being locked into the storage room (Kill Mouse / Negotiate) the background goes black with only the speech bubble with "YES / NO" is visible. So, actually one cannot see what the question is for and as such, if one has never played the game, might get stuck.

I haven't played it on the original interpreter, so i don't know what should happen there, but i doubt it should simply go blank?

Attached is a save right before the negotiate question comes up, simply "use axe on door"

The background going black is normal and occurs in the original. As for the missing title in question boxes, I've reported it here:

so, this is a combination of "bug exists in original", and a dupe?

comment:4 by misterhands, 6 years ago

Pretty much, though the screen going black could be by design.

I believe is "by design" to avoid showing murders.

Missing title is duplicate of #6501, which is fixed at

Yes, the titles are there now and the game is completable.

Thanks a lot
