SCI: Phant1: Can't get Glass Shard

Reported by: dafioram Owned by: csnover
Priority: high Component: Engine: SCI
Keywords: sci32 Cc:
Game: Phantasmagoria 1

Description

Tester OS: Win7-64
ScummVM: 1.10.0git-3986-gc3f8f1a
Game: Phant1 GOG CD/DOS 1.000.001UK English

I did a full playthrough and in chapter 7 I am unable to pickup the glass shard needed for the end game. I don't see in in chapter 6 so I guess you can't get it earlier.

You can get it while don is chasing you, but it dissapears as soon as you use it. The youtube playthrough shows it staying in your inventory, if you get it this way: https://youtu.be/aGZ9okPV6MA?t=319

This isn't a blocker because you can start a new game at chapter 7 and get the shard successfully.

I'm not sure how you would reproduce this without my save, maybe if you start at chapter 6 and playthrough to 7? Using my saved game it is always reproducible.

Thanks for your report, but this is not a ScummVM bug. You have not fulfilled the criteria to win this section of the game. Keep trying! :)

You are right it isn't a ScummVM bug and it is in the original game, but you're hint isn't completely correct. I am not actually stuck like I thought, or as you're hint suggests. There is an alternative...

Okay I just beat the game with this alternative, the end game is not that long if you just skip the cutscenes, so the alternate is definitely do able. Attached is the save game right before going to the dark room and it has all the items necessary for "shardless" ending.
