#873 closed defect (fixed)

MM: F-Keys not yet supported

Reported by: SF/dfabulich Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Maniac Mansion

Description

Beat the game. Alternately, blow up the mansion. (In
the attached saved game, go through the door, give the
badge to Purple Tentacle, walk through the door on the
right, open the locker, pick up the suit, use the card
key on the slot, and turn the switch off.) The game
will say "press f4 to play again", but this obviously
doesn't do anything useful.

I'm not too clear on what you'd want to do about this,
but I'd think that you'd either want to somehow change
that message to say "f5" or to make f4 act like f5.
(For MM only?)

I think the F-key codes are different in the old games (1-8 for F1
to F8, or so?)

Ah. A little more investigation turned this up.

In the original, f4 was like ESC, not f5. (In fact, pushing
ESC at that point does, indeed, start the game over again in
ScummVM, but not in the original version.) Here were the
original keys:

f1 - Dave
f2 - Kid 2
f3 - Kid 3
f4 - ESC
f5 - Save/Load/Continue (with a cool screen that would be
nice to have in the ScummVM version... somehow...?)
f6 - Toggle sounds
f7 - Nothing?
f8 - Restart

Yes yes. This is all trivial visible by looking at script 4.

Fixed (well restarting doesn't work fully properly but that's
another issue :-)
