The saved game is too big to attach to the tracker. Here it is:

The bug happens as soon as there are enough inventory items, using this particular save has no importance.

(The saves being very large is probably another bug. Their size seem to increase as progress in the game is made.)

Something is definitely broken with the way this works in ScummVM (it shouldn’t ever be moving in the wrong direction as it is now), but the arrows are intended to be held down; the inventory does scroll successfully if you just hold down the mouse button instead of clicking.

As it turns out, the jump up occurs in SSCI as well, but since it scrolls as fast as the game scripts can run, you are unlikely to notice it unless you turn cycles in DOSBox way down (to like 15%).

It may be possible to script patch whatever script is responsible for the janky scroll but it’s such a cosmetic problem that I don’t feel like investing time or energy in it. m-kiewitz, I know you have interest in script patching bugs, so if you would be interested in writing a patch for this bug then the ticket can stay open, otherwise I think it should be closed wontfix.
