#874 closed defect (duplicate)

Ending: Can't quit when you're done

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

Description

Enter the lab to beat the game. As you attempt to
enter the lab, the New Kid option is disabled, and so
are saved games. Now go ahead and finish. (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.) Now attempt
to save or quit the game with f5. You can't.

I'm on Win2K, ScummVM 0.4.2cvs, Built on Jun 8 2003

Er, actually, I just figured out that you CAN quit, you just
have to know the trick. See, in MM EGA, f4 was the key you
pressed instead of ESC. So just press ESC in ScummVM to
start the game over again and then f5 will work again.

Still, pressing f4 as instructed won't work, and it isn't
obvious that you'd need to hit ESC at that time. This might
just be something you'd want to release note right before
some kind of official release.
