Pretty sure white is used as pic priority... And about the little lines, never noticed them, the line is the front boundary of that priority band so yeah, they should go up.

I might fire up the original SCI interpreter in debug mode and do some priority band testing with ego to verify this.


Before I do that though, one point of clarification: What I was referring to is the priority band, which are bands that control what priority value ego gets depending on ego's y value. As far as I know, there is no white priority band. But there definitely is a white priority colour that is used within the priority screen on a SCI picture. Anything in the picture that is priority colour white will always be on top of ego because ego would not normally have a priority value of white/15 (as assigned by the priority bands). I assume it is possible to programmatically give ego a priority value of 15 though.

I've just been playing around with the debug mode in Quest for Glory 2 to try to work out the answers to the priority band puzzle. Using a combination of Alt-P (show priority screen) and Alt-E (show ego stats) I was able to verify that both the scummvm and my original formula are correct. The priority bands are as follows:

0: Black - Lines 0-41
1: Blue - Lines 42-52
2: Green - Lines 53-63
3: Cyan - Lines 64-73
4: Red - Lines 74-84
5: Magenta - Lines 85-94
6: Brown - Lines 95-105
7: Light grey - Lines 106-115
8: Dark grey - Lines 116-126
9: Light blue - Lines 127-137
10: Light green - Lines 138-147
11: Light cyan - Lines 148-158
12: Light red - Lines 159-168
13: Light magenta - Lines 169-179
14: Yellow - Lines 180-189

I have attached an example of the screen shots I took during this process and from which I got the above information.
