#8297 closed patch

FT: INSANE support

Reported by: sev- Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Full Throttle


This is preliminary support of FT INSANE.

Do not expect it to work. This is work in progress. There is no output to the screen yet, not all hooks are implemented, too much stubs to let it work at all.

I'll use this place to save the beast in case there would be some hardware failure or something because it is growing too far.

The code is ugly, and I know that.

Also indentation is wrong because it is my default settings in emacs. If someone has it definitions for scummvm rules, that would be very appretiated.

Now code follows scummvm formatting rules. More things implemented, even more variables got proper name, some complex structures were found and defined.

Some comments: Those init_actorStruct / init_roomConfigStruct / etc. look as if you really want to use array constructors, and in fact, static arrays.

E.g. instead of using init_actorStruct, you could do something like

static const actor s_actor[9] = { { 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 }, // Unused { 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0 }, { 12, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0 }, { 11, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0 }, ... }; That's (IMO) easier (or at least not harder) to read, simplifies the code a little and the optimizer can work better. But of course it's mostly cosmetical


In Insane::actor1Reaction, why are the case's not ordered numercially? To match the assembly?

comment:4 by sev-, 20 years ago

The problem is that those structures are not const, they hold dynamic data. For those structure which keep some constants I prefer to use 'static const' structure. In fact Insane object should be a singleton like GUI and should be created near place where sound is initialized. That is because it should hold some data between scenes. That would mean that every struct can be static. What do you think?

As of Insane::actor1Reaction and other functions with switch statement, yes, now they map assembly code. With this approach it would be easier to find translation bugs. You saw zillions of those values and I could miss something or put wrong value, though I doublecheck every function.

Another version of the patch. Now most variables are named properly, also some previous assumptions were wrong (see roomConfig as an example). It seems that now I hooked the code at correct places in scummvm, though this has to be doublechecked yet and there are two hooks still unplugged.

If you apply this patch, define INSANE in config.h to enable it, however expect to see just debug output and non-interaction parts of the scenes. From the other hand the thing which will let see something on the screen is next one to be implemented. It is modification of smush player to add possibility to switch smush files and frames on the fly.
