SCI: SQ4: No points awarded when changing clothes at the mall

Reported by: SF/crosshat Owned by: m-kiewitz
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: original script
Cc: Game: Space Quest 4


I can't seem to get the 3 points for changing clothes at the mall. I have seen videos where the player did get the points, but I can't seem to get them on scummvm.

Just to clarify: This concerns the English CD version of the game

comment:6 by m-kiewitz, 9 years ago

It seems this is a game bug.

Afaik GOG is using Dosbox for Space Quest.

caleb mortlock, it seems the saved game is right after changing clothes back. Can you please upload a saved game right before changing clothes?

comment:8 by m-kiewitz, 9 years ago

nevermind, I managed to get to that spot using my own set of saved games and was able to reproduce the bug.

I have looked further into this issue. A flag is not set when cleaning out the account, which then causes no points to be awarded later. It seems that this happens ALL THE TIME for the CD Version. In the floopy version the bank account worked completely different and didn't use a separate screen. I have to assume that Sierra developers simply forgot to set it.

And the video, that is linked to, seems not to be the regular Space Quest 4 CD version, but the hacked NRS CD/Floppy-Version (which we personally consider a pirate copy). It later shows stuff like the "Stunt Flyer", which was not implemented in the actual game. This hacked version was basically part Floppy, part CD-Version.

Anyway, I guess it should be pretty easy to fix this. It would be nice, if someone could verify what I'm saying and play the game up until that sequence using the original interpreter and DOSBox.

Actual Space Quest 4 CD gameplay: at around 45:00 Wilco is changing back and as expected, no points are granted.

script patch added via commit f0ccd3f91a2a412f7e4a1cab067ef6d8dddf561b Just download the next daily build.

issue is fixed. However you have to restore a save, where you haven't cleaned out the bank account.

If you don't have one, please tell me. I can tell you debugger commands, so that the flag gets set manually.

Thank you so much for fixing this. It has always bugged me that you couldn't get a full score on the CD version. And now you can.
