#9175 closed patch (fixed)

BRA: handle SELFUSE flag

Reported by: fuzzie Owned by: peres
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Parallaction
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


This adds checks for kFlagsSelfuse in two new places: checkZoneBox (as an alternative to the NS-style check for X == -1) and in the input code (as well as kFlagsNoWalk).

Again, accompanied by "I have no idea how this is meant to work" disclaimer (would you prefer that the parser change the X location and set the noWalk flag?), but this seems to be the right flag, at least.

Ticket imported from: #3003626. Ticket imported from: patches/1280.

For clarity: this is a BRA-only flag, so this shouldn't affect NS. The result is that you can 'use' objects on your own character; for instance, you can open the envelope you start the game with.

Thanks for spotting those two places that need to be patched, but you should be testing kFlagsYourself instead. SELFUSE (misleadingly enough) marks zones that must be preserved across location changes (see Parallaction::freeZones and so on). The flags often occur together on zones, so I suppose you were lucky with your testing :)

Please see the attached patch.

This was also a stupid mistake on my part: I tested this by removing the YOURSELF flag from some zones in the DOS version, but I didn't realise that COMMON.SLF has a copy of everything!

I checked again by modifying COMMON.SLF and you're right. Your patch seems to work fine, thankyou.
