General

  • make a clean implementation of double-buffering, with centralized updateScreen(). This would significantly deviate from the original engine, but may be the only way to effectively implement hardware-based effects (like half-brite). Other versions of the engine will surely benefit from a clean approach, too.
  • merge input loops: make one input routine for menu, one for dialogue and one for _c_endIntro (possibly merge it with menu). It would be probably needed as part of the new double-buffering implementation. Should be worthy to investigate if it can be made before.
  • make a real Parser: maybe not strictly necessary but sounds cool :)


Nippon Safes

known serious issues:

  • dino crashes when he activates robot from mini size [under investigation]
  • dino sometimes crashes after reduction at matsushita lab [under investigation]
  • dino crashes when opening shopping bag in mitsushita office (not on loadgames) [under investigation]
  • dough crashes when parachuting from monastery (not on loadgames) [under investigation]

other less relevant issues:

  • halbfrite spotlight for donna's show is not working: the effect is handled in hardware in the original game, and the current implementation doesn't allow for a clean solution. See General TODO above (double-buffering stuff).
  • mouse should be hidden during character dialogues
  • mouse should be restored after dialog boxes are closed
  • character should walk faster to match the original

glitches:

  • honest chan can't be seen properly in amiga demo
  • hiragana code blocks in protection screen should change color when pressed (amiga)
  • make proper balloons with rounded corners for dialogues (amiga) [needs a polygon fill routine]
