Broken Sword glitches

Post by SysOp » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:04 pm

I tried Broken Sword (I & II) on my Caanoo today using ScummVM v1.4.1. It's actually acceptable despite of the half resolution. It's actually supersampling anti-aliasing!
Unfortunately I quickly discovered three glitches that occur in both games, one of which bothers me.

Some parts of the screen look as if interlaced and in some parts the cursor leaves trails:

The interlacing bothers me most because it makes the text harder to read.

Also the menus are sometimes cut off diagonally:

Version 1.2.1 does not have these issues, so I'll be using that version in the meantime.
I hope this can be fixed.

Same issue

I just found out that the previous post "Caanoo Curse Of Monkey Island - Graphics issue" from "erebusnz" most likely refers to the same issue.

Hard to say without a bug# to reference.

(I am not a Caanoo maintainer)

Hiya,

Just acknowledged the bug report.

Taking a look but can you also tell me if it occurs in the nightly builds (http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html - Debug so DO NOT expect them to actually be usable) and a little more about your GPH device(s).

Can't say I noticed that many problems with the down scale but I don't test the down scaled games that thoroughly (not a great fan of the resulting image quality).

Thanks,

John
