Bugs, glitches and ToDos

Script bugs

  • Bargon Attack: Graphical glitch when loading a save made on the Bargon bridge after transforming self (the original actor appears as well).
  • Fascination: Some versions have incorrect timing in several places as they used loading time. Fixing the scripts is required in those cases (before entering the lab was the most visible example) - Now fixed in Amiga and Atari versions
  • Fascination: The game sometimes hangs in the parking lot when the card is used directly, without the code. - This also occurs in the original exe
  • Gobliins 2: Leaving Vivalzart's screen and returning after putting the mushroom into the machine yields another mushroom in the inventory. Letting Winkle use that one with the machine locks him up.
  • Gobliins 2: In music land, trying to switch the screen should be prohibited by the scripts, but isn't. A workaround keeps ScummVM from crashing and shows a dialog box instead. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Gobliins 2: In the bubble screen, the game lets you try to release the prince before acquiring the safety pin, leaving you in an unfinishable state. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Goblins 3: 'A Bell' button hotspot disappears. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Goblins 3: Chessboard scene reloads after the rat is first used. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Goblins 3: Unable to enter the Battlefield. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Goblins 3: Unable to progress through queen's throne room. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Lost in Time: sprite gets corrupted during a dialogue. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Woodruff: Infinite hypnotic CDs. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Woodruff: Access to the Laboratory. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Woodruff: Wrong code for safe in temple. Template:BugTrackSF
  • Woodruff: Bluxtre nut not drawn after leaving it on the ground. Template:BugTrackSF


  • Mouse cursor sometimes shown when it shouldn't and vice versa. (Introduced when I changed cursor handling to the CursorManager; my solution isn't all that great, apparently.)
  • The number of used jokers isn't saved correctly: you'll always have 5 to spend again after loading. This is a result of using individual files for each save slot and letting the user exit with CTRL-Q (the number of jokers is saved globally for the whole game and only when exiting using the menu).



  • Ween: Wrong speaker sound when putting away items on some machines.
  • Fascination: The duration of short sounds is sometimes incorrect. The most obvious problem is the sound of the keys of the phone: the sound is not played for each key (first room). This may be similar to the Ween sound issue.

File-specific tasks


  • Add support for other rendering modes (EGA/CGA/Hercules) lega.gdr, l360.gdr, lcga.gdr.


  • Gobliiins Mac: musmac1.adl isn't played correctly at all.

Game-specific tasks


  • Add support to the RAC file, which is used by the protection of the CD version. (not really required, the game works with extracted STKs)

Inca 2

  • The (hard-coded) space shooter isn't yet implemented.
  • A few graphic glitches remain.

Little Red Riding Hood

  • Handle direction keys, so that the arcade part is playable


  • Creation tool is not working properly.
  • Clicking on a word should spell it, not the first word of the sentence

The Last Dynasty

  • Space shooter is hard-coded there, too.
  • The game currently loops strangely, thanks to the faked shooter return code.

Urban Runner

  • When mousing over the register in the hotel action sequence, the inventory pops up.
  • Corrupt encoded frames in videos are skipped or masked by original interpreter. Need to do the same.
    • Most of these are now detected and corrected masked, but three cases still remain as of 2011-04-26:
      • < 1sec white glitch in video triggered when Max approaches Door in Basement ("mxport2").
      • ~1sec white glitch in video as Adda escapes from warehouse.
      • Large red/orange glitch in Inspector Van Dell video shown after Max complete Pool Hall entry ("sn6").
