#774 closed defect (fixed)

DIG: Cursor image appears in upper left corner

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: The Dig


The first time you adjust the blue rods to activate the
dead crystal in The Dig, a picture of the cursor
(up/down arrow) appears in the upper left corner.

(This could possibly be somewhat related to bug
#737387, "SAM: Part of text (subtitles) disappears when
moving mouse", but the fix for that one has no effect
on this one.)

The bug appears in recent CVS snapshots with the
English version of The Dig, but I believe it has been
there for a long time.

The first step towards solving this would be to find out which code
is reponsible for drawing the cursor graphics in the top left of the
screen. It's not setCursorImg, that much is know...

I don't understand what's going on, but this is what appears
to be happening:

Object 690 is added to room 93 by addObjectToInventory().

Object 690 is "removed" with removeObjectFromRoom(), called
from o6_pickupObject().

Object 690 is drawn as part of drawRoomObjects().

It's the third step that I don't understand. Surely, if an
object has been picked up it's no longer one of the room
objects? And removeObjectFromRoom() seems misnamed because
as far as I can see it doesn't really remove the object. It
just forces that part of the screen to be redrawn.

I haven't tried to make sense of the scripts yet, but it
looks like it's script-18 that's doing things:

[008B] (9B) resourceOps.loadFlObject(localvar0)
[0090] (5D) if (getVerbEntrypoint(localvar0,91)) {
[009A] (60) startObject(2,localvar0,91,[])
[00A7] (5D) if (ifClassOfIs(var252,[30])) {
[00B4] (7C) stopScript(0)
[00B8] (**) }
[00B8] (73) } else {
[00BB] (7C) stopScript(0)
[00BF] (**) }
[00BF] (84) pickupObject(localvar0)

room-100-2001 invokes the script with startScript(0,18,[690])

Objects are never really "removed" from a room - only 'hidden'.
What happens if you pick up an object, roughly, is that
* copy the object code into an 'inventory' resource
* set the object owner to be the player
* put the object into the 'untouchable' class (so that clicking on it
in the room doesn't work anymore)
* put it into state 1

The object then is still being drawn, however, normally for that
state the object frame is either empty or blends into the room
scenery, so it essentially gets 'invisible'.

The key here is that the object gets turned into an flObject and
hence shouldn't be drawn in the room anymore. I *think* so at
least. I just commited an according fix to CVS, but it might cause
regressions in other places. We'll see....

Reverted Fingolfins bugfix for #738352 (object.cpp
revision 1.162), which caused Sam and
Max inventory regression #877798.

Closing 877798 and reopening 738352.

As far as this bug goes, I just reverted the whole change
as it didn't "feel right" to me.

Fix verified against disasm but should only apply to scumm7+
and HE games.
