61595: Make a teacher find the truant ERIC
The address of this interruptible subcommand routine is placed into bytes 9 and 10 of a teacher's buffer by the routine at 61631. It makes the teacher run after and stalk ERIC until he goes to wherever he should be (the dinner hall, the assembly hall, or the classroom).
H Teacher's character number (201-203)
61595 LD L,29 Set bit 7 of byte 29 of the teacher's buffer, making him run
61597 SET 7,(HL)
61599 LD L,0 Byte 0 of the teacher's buffer holds his animatory state
61601 BIT 0,(HL) Is the teacher midstride?
61603 JP NZ,25950 Finish the stride if so
61606 LD L,29
Now check whether a command list restart has been requested. This request will have been made for one of two reasons: the lesson in which the teacher started chasing ERIC has ended, and the next lesson has just begun (see 63309); or ERIC is now where he should be (see below). In either case, the chase is over.
61608 BIT 0,(HL) Has the teacher's command list been marked for a restart?
61610 JP NZ,32399 If so, do some post-chase cleanup, remove the address of this routine from bytes 9 and 10 of the teacher's buffer, and restart the command list
61613 CALL 32021 Is ERIC where he should be?
61616 JP NZ,25944 Continue the chase if not
61619 SET 0,(HL) Otherwise set bit 0 of byte 29 of the teacher's buffer, indicating that the command list should be restarted
61621 JR 61608 Restart the command list now that the chase is over
