[Discworld 1 CD/DOS] Psy office event not triggered

Post by nemo93 » Thu May 09, 2019 2:12 pm

Hello, I'm writing here before raising an official ticket to be sure I'm doing things properly.

Bug details: to progress the game at some point you must visit the psychiatrist (aka Psychiatrickerist) for him to provide some ink blot papers. Yet whatever I do I'm never called up to his office. After reading on the Web, you know the event will be triggered whenever the left most seat (close to the secretary) is empty. For me it's never empty, the milkmaid lady is seating there all the time.

I'm following a walkthrough (http://christpen.pagesperso-orange.fr/disc.htm -- in French!) hence I was not expecting this to happen. I've talked to as many characters as I could and try to exit/re-enter the office multiple times. Also trying to speak to the Troll and milkmaid failed to trigger the event.

To reproduce: I do have 2 savegames available that I could share anytime with anyone asking (yet I don't know where to upload those). Issue above is 100% reproducible using these saves as I did test on another ScummVM version (on my PC using the latest build/nightly as well as latest stable release 2.0.0 for Win10.

Language of game: English (with french subtitles)

Version of game: CD DOS/Talkie and I believe it's version 2 as I do have *.SCN files (no *GRA).

OS/device: I'm running ScummVM on a Raspberry 3B+.

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux retropie 4.14.98-v7+ #1200 SMP Tue Feb 12 20:27:48 GMT 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

DW1's scripts can be quite buggy as per:

I would suspect this may be a similar issue. Please file this as a bug on the tracker with savegames and relevant information as it is right place for it, rather than the forum.

Thank you @digitall. I just filed a bug report as described. I consider this forum entry as closed.
