SCI: LSL7 PL: Polish typed text not recognized (only english), game freeze

Reported by: szczuru Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: sci32
Cc: Game: Leisure Suit Larry 7


This is another issue that i've found in official Polish version of LSL7
(Previous issues: #10066 )

So in polish version all commands typed from keyboard are in polish language but in ScummVM all commands must be typed in english. And "top bar" (where are options like save/load) is also in english ("outside" of ScummVM this bar is in polish).

Issue with english text isn't present in PS3 version (using latest daily build and same game files from Windows verion). But game still hangs on very same moment.

Hello, I've created account especially to report I've solved this issue, I'm not sure it's working 100% through the game, but for sure it fix free after 'balcony scene', layout (GUI) is in polish, subtitles are polish and you can type polish words for 'other actions'. ScummVM will throw one warning 'Failed to find volume for map.2' and can't recognize files RESOURCE.AUD (obvious), RESSCI.000, RESMAP.000.


  1. you need working english 1.01 version
  2. not sure if it's needed but I've renamed all files in polish version folder to upper case (all files in english version are upper case)
  3. copy and replace files RESOURCE.AUD and RESOURCE.SFX (possible it's identical to english one) from polish to english
  4. copy and replace files from DATA to PATCHES (english 1.01. version contains such folder)

Hope this will help to fix it.

So we got two issues here:

  • the game hanging seems to be caused by corrupted game files
  • the Polish characters issue has been reported again in bug #11274, and a fix has been added, which is connected with that bug report

Thus I'm closing this in favor of #11274
