MOHAWK: Riven: Graphical glitch allows unintended access to floating room.

Reported by: macca8 Owned by: bgK
Priority: low Component: Engine: Mohawk

Game: Riven

Description

This bug relates to accessing the pin puzzle room in the middle of the lake at the very top of Garden Island.

Access to this room shouldn't be available unless the player activates one of the island replicas below the balcony using the balcony's control panel.

However, when you initially arrive in the elevator, if you turn around, instead of moving forward onto the balcony, the ramp is already extended. You can enter the room but the pin puzzle is disabled (since no island has been selected).

The good news is that it's only a temporary condition, since it's removed from the game as soon as the player looks down after reaching the end of the balcony (there's no need to interact with the panel).

It's been around for years, and is NOT present in the original.

Current Daily Build: 1.10.0git3923-gef42fd3 (15 July 2017)
Game Version: English, 5-CD (contains v1.02 patch files)
Platform: Intel Mac (OS X 10.6.8)

Thanks for your report. This is now fixed (Commit 6b78f4a).

The bridge state was set incorrectly when starting a new game. Your existing saves will still have the buggy behavior. If you want to test this, you need to start a new game.
(or enter "var glkbridge 1" in the debug console).
