#8087 closed patch

drawBomp() masking

This patch should keep the inventory in The Dig from covering text messages. (This would only happen in scenes where the characters are seen from a great distance, e.g. inside the asteroid.) There are two parts to the it: Both drawBomp() and removeBlastObject() need to be made to honor the charset mask.

Fixing drawBomp() is much easier than fixing removeBlastObject(), but I hope I got it right. I've tested it with:

* Sam & Max: The LucasArts logos at the beginning of the intro. * Sam & Max: The floating objects outside the Mystery Vortex. * Sam & Max: Highway surfing. * The Dig: The inventory window. * The Dig: The conversation icons.

If anyone knows any other games/scenes that uses bomps, I'd be grateful if they could test with them, too, because it feels like every case I've tested has revealed at least one new problem. This is actually the third or fourth revision of the patch...

One unexpected bonus is that since drawBomp() now honors the topmost mask, the patch also fixes the masking problems outside the Mystery Vortex. Even the original interpreter didn't handle that one correctly!

As you can see, the patch also changes updateDirtyRect() so that it once again uses 200 instead of _realHeight. I just can't see how the screen height could have anything to do with the rightmost strip, so it must have been a coincidence that they are the same.

Looks good :)

Applied (I think someone went a little bit overboard with copy/paste when it
came to _realHeight) - great work, as usual :)
