MOHAWK: Riven: 'confirm_exit' option displays dialog when game ends.

Priority: normal Component: Engine: Mohawk

Cc: Game: Riven


This is an unusual bug in that the feature it refers to isn't standard for Riven.

With the recent overhaul of the Riven engine, the 'confirm_exit' option now intercepts the automatic quit generated when the game ends (didn't previously), displaying an unnecessary dialog to the player.

For the record, clicking Quit closes both Riven and ScummVM as expected, however clicking Cancel relaunches the end game.

Having said that, the pertinent issue here is that the dialog shouldn't appear.

To reproduce:

  • manually add the line 'confirm_exit=true' to the ScummVM section of the Config File.
  • using the attached saved game, press the button beside the telescope to launch the end game.

Note that any end game can be used for this test.

I've added this option to the Config File because Riven doesn't currently offer a 'Prompt to Save' feature (unlike the original, which does). It provides the first part of the required functionality (the second part is to return to the in-game menu to complete the save) by intercepting player exit calls (Quit, Return to Launcher, but NOT Load) for a game in progress, and continues to do so.

Hopefully a proper 'Prompt to Save' feature can be added in the near future.

Please ignore my comment above about the behaviour of the Cancel button. Turns out this was corrected by one of the changes over the last few days. All it does in this case is close the dialog.
