#692 closed defect (wontfix)

simon2: bottom is not shown properly

Reported by: SF/starsinthesky Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: AGOS
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Simon the Sorcerer 2


in full screen mode the bottom of game is too far down
to be shown ( not allways though). it seems the tool
window has wrong offset is moved down a few step so
the space between the game window and the tools is
bigger (where the name of things are whown) in a
commando prompt (using alt-enter) the game is shown

scummvm 0.3.0b

If you are using a Nvidia based video card, make sure you
aren't using the Nvidia 40.x reference drivers, use either an
earlier or later version instead.
Otherwise can you provide a screenshot ?

This is definitly not a bug in SDL, but rather on in your system (not that you tell us what your system is, I wonder if people ever read the "Submit" page which clearly asks for this information?)

What you describe is either a buggy display driver, or a not properly configured resolution.

ok here is some more information for you:

My system is a AMD Duron 1GHZ, with Msi K7TTurbo2
motherboard and nVidia Geforce2 MX 400, 32 MB graphics
card. My OS is Windows XP SP1 and I do not have any
nVidia driver installed besides the one XP provides me with.
The driver is nv4_mini.sys and nv4_disp.dll file version I dont know if that is 40.x or not.

fingolfin: If I run the game wihtout scummvm I do not have this
problem. So this is scummvm from my point of view. I have
not experienced this before either. My resolution is otherwise
great 1024x1280 normally.

kirben: I tried to get a screenshot with printscrn keyboard
button, but then I get the full screen as it is supposed to look

I installed the latest nVidia drivers 41.x --> No change

comment:7 by SF/starsinthesky, 17 years ago

I noticed something else. even the setup page of scummvm
has same problem. i even ran simon1 and same thing there. I
changed my resolution to 800x600 see if that would help. no
change. frankly i think compared with dos, the whole page is
pressed horizontally. the compass for password verification is
not circular, its oval. you really think its my system even
though i just see scummvm having this behaviour?

Definately sounds like a problem specific to your system,
since no problem show up in screenshots.
