Summary0005951: When time of day changes (from day to night) the game blocks
DescriptionWhen time of day changes (from day to night) the game blocks. By the look of the pointer it can be assumed that the game wants to "read" something but it does nothing.

The problem occurs in the IPF version (game version 1.023). It also occurs when you play from floppies so it looks like some broken resource file.
Steps To Reproduce1. Restore the attached gamesave named "126p fruit"
2. Type "jump" several times until your character reaches the end of the screen in order to progress to the next one.
3. When the loading process starts you will get a screen indicating that the day-time has ended and it is going to be a night-time.
4. And nothing can be done to continue...

Game logic bug. Happens only if the player obtained scarab from the witches before the fruit. https://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=297734&postcount=11
