Issue description
There's a cutscene right after the Ylside Invasion of Arx that's missing the subtitles and back bars that usually appear in every other cutscene within the game.

Not a game-breaking issue, but I don't recall seeing it in the original version of the game.
Steps to reproduce this issue
The problematic cutscene is triggered right after the Ylside Invasion of Arx when you enter the throne room to meet with King Lunshire, during which he sends you off to craft the Ultimate Weapon. Typically, there would be black bars at the top and bottom of the screen as well as subtitles. This happens only during this particular cutscene.

Here's a link to the video where this can be observed (starts at 29:52): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcVWyoRp5yo&index=43&list=PLx5CbzE2kDZ18CtlrSjUS-ZNC_55UmsOF (Note: this is not my video, but the exact same thing happens in my game)

Can you attach a save file from just before the cutscene?

A file was uploaded. Save file to reproduce the issueicon_open_new.png This comment was attached:

Nvm, I created a save file by using the script console.

This seems to be a script syntax error/parsing issue - graph/obj3d/interactive/npc/human_base/human_base_0082/human_base.asl has some commands split accross multiple lines. The cutscene code starts at label >>dialogue_castle_free.

The code
  1. CINEMASCOPE -s
  2. ON PLAYER_INTERFACE -s
  3. HIDE PLAYER_LOOKAT SELF
Should be
  1. CINEMASCOPE -s ON
  2. PLAYER_INTERFACE -s HIDE
  3. PLAYER_LOOKAT SELF


As far as I can tell, AF 1.21 accepted the broken code so we should as well (or patch the scripts).

Corresponding script warnings:
  • human_base_0082:24114
  • human_base_0082:24141
