#874 closed defect (duplicate)

Ending: Can't quit when you're done

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


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 10:48:38.

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.
