Game: Future Wars


ScummVM version (scummvm -v)

ScummVM 1.9.0 (Oct 22 2016 10:21:00)

Bug details, including instructions on reproducing

Play Future Wars (fw). Mouse clicks do not "register" being pressed as easily as they do in the ScummVM menus, or in other games.

Mouse clicks either require to be pressed for a long time (like 1 second) or pressed multiple times to register.

This can be reproduced on the first copy protection screen as soon as the game starts, and at all times during regular gameplay.

Language of game (English, German, ...)


Version of game (Talkie, Floppy, ...)

DOS Floppy displays this problem quite badly.
Amiga and Atari ST versions are not as bad, but the problem is still present.

Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, ...)

Tested using Ubuntu 16.04 package on Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit

Also tested using Win32 installer thru Wine, same thing occurs.

Attach a save game if possible

No savegame is required to reproduce this issue.

If this bug only occurred recently…

Tested with Ubuntu's ScummVM 1.7.0 package, same issue occurs.

Tested with 1.8.0 Ubuntu Wily amd64 package, same issue occurs.

Doesn't appear to be a recent regression.

Additional Info

This is not noted on the compatibility page:

Couldn't see any listed TODO or Known Bug about this on the Cine page:

This doesn't occur when emulating the game via DOSBox or Hatari.

These changes ("Make interface more responsive (See manageEvents() and drawFrame()).") may have affected this bug.
