    This should not be possible, unless you are loading some 2.54 beta quest that ended up in the package unintentionally. The ZQ version ID is still 0x250.

    ???

    As @DarkDragon said, what specific quest file are you trying to load?

    Confirmed: The 1.92 B 182/3 version of James Quest is now 100% functional in its base form. I think 1.92 183 stuff works picture perfect in 2.53. Zoria, let me know if you want me to test out quest conversion stuff again with that
    Confirmed: The Revenge 1 works perfectly.
    Confirmed: New Quest 1.84 is NOT working. All stuff pre-1.84 official release looks like it doesn't work.
    Revenge 2, New Quest 2003, and U3Q load, haven't finished them, don't know if all the tech works.
    Demo 1.84 loads. We probably don't need to go further with this, there are more recent versions of Demo that work, and original Demo is not a requested quest to speedrun or stream as of yet.

    New Quest 2003 loads. I'll get back to it after the other critical stuff is tested

    This commit incorrectly reverted at least two changes.

    ending.cpp
    Code:
    -        { "\2741999-" COPYRIGHT_YEAR,    88, 896, white },
    +        { "\2741999-2017",    88, 896, white },
    zc_sys.cpp:
    Code:
    -    { jwin_ctext_proc,        160,  76,   0,    8,    vc(0),   vc(11),  0,       0,         0,        0, (void *) "Zelda Classic", NULL,  NULL },
    -    { jwin_ctext_proc,        160,  84,   0,    8,    vc(0),   vc(11),  0,       0,         0,        0, (void *) "Version " ZELDA_VERSION_STR, NULL,  NULL },
    +    { jwin_ctext_proc,        160,  84,   0,    8,    vc(0),   vc(11),  0,       0,         0,        0, (void *) "Zelda Classic", NULL,  NULL },
    ZELDA_VERSION_STR isn't showing up in ZQuest, either, but it looks like the code is still there. Are you building from another repo?


    Also, could you expand on this a bit?
    Code:
    Global script OnExit now works. In prior versions, this script did not run.
    Antiquity uses OnExit to start the second quest, so it was definitely running at least when you win the quest. Were there other times it should have been running and wasn't?

    I'll look into the strings when I have a chance. That is a far more minor issue than the other more abundant problems.

    OnExit should run when the game exits, via F6, Game->End(), or when Link dies. It does that now. It is OnExit, not OnWinGame. The purpose is to clean up global vars, bitmaps, and other things that you want to clear when the game ends by death, or by F6. I'm not sure when this broke, or when it was fixed, but it definitely did not work in 2.50.2, it might have in 2.50.1 or 2.50.0, and it does work in 2.50.3RC1 and 2.53.0.

    A different issue of course, is if the change broke Antiquity. I don't know exactly how you caused it to load a second quest.

    It's probably gonna break Antiquity. Evil Zoria Changing the behavior of stuff without considering it might be working as intended.

    Anyway, whats the purpose of a script that runs right before the game ends. If it doesn't save before ending, the script won't affect anything. And why did you mention link dying as a case for OnExit running? Link dying doesn't necessarily mean the quest ends. One could select continue and the quest goes on.

    I don't feel strongly one way or the other about how the OnExit script should behave, but if the behavior is going to change, there needs to be a quest rule that preserved old quest compatibility.
