MM C64: meteor landing

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

Description

The route of the meteor landing in the intro is not correct. MM C64 in contrast to MM V2 uses two walkboxes instead of just one. Hence a route from walkbox 1 to 0 is calculated first. This causes the meteor to fly on a horizontal line to walkbox 0 then vertically to the ground.
To fix this problem, the box-to-box routing has been disabled in room 33 for MM C64.

This seems to be hack / workaround, not a proper solution for the underlying issue.
So at the very least, the hack should be marked with a "WORKAROUND" comment which also refers to the relevant bug/patch tracker id.

But I wonder if this and other C64 related reports simply indicate that walking was implemented differently in the C64 version?
