Full Throttle action scenes

Post by croeding »

Hello,

In the Bicycle scenes it seems nearly impossible to win. On the original DOS-Version it was different, AFAIR. Are there any known issues with scummvm and steering in Full Throttle?

Thanks
Chris

No, now difficulty in bike fights matches original. Though in earlier versions of ScummVM it was much easier to win because of several bugs. Now we fixed that. :P

that is not true, the cd game played on windows (without scumm) is very much easier than the scumm version. your control of ben in the action scenes are acurate and you can get him to attack when you want.
in the scumm version you just keep clicking trying to get him to throw a hit,and it is nearly impossible to win.

I need some proof of that, i.e. more exact behaviour description. I tested it many times agains original in dosbox, though it _may_ happen that WinXP version (rerelased one) had it somewhat lightened. Any additional points?

Personally, I couldn't get the chainsaw from the redhead. I kept throwing fertilizer at her, but it wouldn't work :(

You can cheat at those action scenes by pressing Shift-V, which is how I managed to get the chainsaw, then the plank and finish this part

Tried it right now. I got it right away. You should be close to her, aren't you? Just as she spoke with you, there is a pause before she will start her chainsaw. That's the moment you approach her and throw the fertilizer. Easy. And _that_ matches original. There was some problem before not connected to this particular case, and it used to make fights under ScummVM extremely easy, but it was fixed long ago, in 0.6.1.

I'm having the same problem with ScummVM on PocketPC.

I'm using a Dell Axim X51V using WM5 OS.

When the first fight scene is about to start (at the beginning of the game) the conversation between your character and the Rottwheeler seems to go ok, but then the video seems to "freeze" and I can hear action in the background. By madly clicking the screen, I can hear myself hitting the Rottwheeler, and I can hear myself getting hit as well. After about 5 seconds of this, the video animation finally comes back on. I can somewhat control my character by clicking on the very extreme right of the screen to move towards the enemy, and clicking the very extreme left of the screen to move away. While moving, my "icon" at the bottom left seems to randomly switch between "Punch" and "Kick" with no obvious reason behind it. I find it extremely difficult (or impossible) to land a proper punch on the enemy, since it seems to only attack about half time, and half of those times are kicks. I usually end up eating asphalt almost right away.

I've tried mapping separate buttons to my left-click and right-click functions, but this doesn't seem to work any better. My direction pad doesn't register for right/left movement either. I've tried using the "map" function for left/right, but I still cannot move with the direction pad.

Sorry for dragging this back up but I've been scanning through the boards and haven't found any resolution to this. Full Throttle is very frustrating on Pocket PC during the canyon combat stage. Does anyone have solutions, workarounds, or techniques to help here?

Hmm, it's been a while since i played FT, but i'm quite sure that
you didn't need to go to the inventory to switch weapons.

As soon as you had a second weapon i think i was able to switch
by pressing "cursor left", "cursor right", mind you, that was on
a desktop system - no handhelds here.

Do you have a little icon on the bottom left (this should be the
place where your weapons are shown)?


OK, scrap that :-)

It was Right Mouse click to switch through your weapons

So it should be
Right click
Hold one finger on screen where you want to click, single tap another
for you.

Of course, first you'd need more weapons, what you got in your inventory right now?
