BURIED: Fix missing research points (bug 12881) #3337
This should fix the missing research points described in https://bugs.scummvm.org/ticket/12881
Basically, the bug boiled down to the points only being awarded when pressing the "previous" button. And that would never take you to the pages that awarded the points.
Note that since I've never gotten around to playing the game, it's quite difficult for me to tell if I've accidentally mixed up anything. I'd be grateful if someone more familiar with the game could test it.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
The positions of the previous and next button had been mixed up. The previous button is left of the next button, not the other way around. This meant you could only be awarded points when pressing the previous button, and since you would then step away from the page that awards point that did not work. Since the buttons worked in other respects, the id for the previous and next pages must also have been similarly mixed up. This too should be fixed now.
The Agent 3 information and profile research points were awarded when pressing the "next" button, so they were never awarded. Award them when hitting a hotspot instead.
For completeness, here are screenshots showing that the bug is fixed.

Looking at the correct screens in Biochip - Files and then dying shows a Research Bonus of 300, as expected.
A complete 15000 out of 15000 points can now be achieved.
