SHERLOCK: disappearing info boxes

Reported by: SF/mimdoe Owned by: dreammaster

Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Rose Tattoo


When I look on objects, the legends sometimes disappear automatically after some time. In DOSBox they disappear only after the mouse clicking.

I'm not sure what you mean by "legends".. do you mean the look description? If so, could you attach a savegame and provide a specific example.

Yes, I mean the look descriptions. You can try for example hydrant, wagon or caution sign.

Okay, I wasn't able to replicate the problem myself, but I think it was likely due to a redundant and incorrect voices check carried over from Serrated Scalpel. I've removed it, so the only way to close look dialogs now will be via key or mouse press. If you could check.

Note that talk/conversation dialogs are different, and they do use a timer; so if there are any look descriptions incorrectly set in the original to use conversation dialogs rather than the basic look dialog, then they will remain timed as well.

It didn't help but it seems that I found the culprit on my computer. It's program NeatMouse ( I use to emulate mouse. I deleted key bindings, put it again and now it works fine even with this program.
