Ridiculous Promenade Bug
Posted 10 May 2009 - 01:39 PM
I finish the dungeon, and decide to clear the group at the Den of Seven Vales before continuing down to the circus and Ribald. I try to rest, but no dice. I'm there talking to Patricia, when suddenly Kivan appears out of nowhere, screams something nonsensical (along the lines of "I knew I should have expected this from a creature like you!") and dimensiondoor-es out.
He doesn't appear in front of the circus tent when I go back out, nor was I able to find him anywhere in the promenade, including the aforementioned inn. I guess he just thought it would be a good idea to track me down all the way from Shilmista just to call me a "creature."
I swear, elves have the weirdest sense of humor ever.

Here and here.
But it were not found out, what is causing this. A new install solved the problem or Ankhesenpaaten better solution to reload the autosave...

In case anyone else gets bit by this. The problem is blatantly obvious in gemrb. The particular response is governed by a simple local variable, not used anywhere else, so it was simple to track down.
IF OR(3) AttackedBy([GOODCUTOFF],DEFAULT) HitBy([GOODCUTOFF],CRUSHING) HPPercentLT(Myself,100) Global("P#KivanAttacked","LOCALS",0) THEN RESPONSE #100 SetGlobal("P#KivanAttacked","LOCALS",1) END
So which one of the three is true on spawn? HPPercentLT and quite obviously — the CRE file has 40/44 HP.
(the real question is if some versions of the engine did or didn't heal creatures on spawn: testing in tob via script or cheats shows no heal — htf could this have ever worked?)
Update: the issue isn't obviously visible in the original, since even if you dismiss him, he just immediately escapes, so the block doesn't get a chance to run. If the preceding movement blocks that start the dialog were removed, the issue would be clear.

Mages needed! Looking for Planescape: Torment testers
Market android version IS NOT SUPPORTED ANYMORE: reported bugs will be ignored! Still looking for builders ...
