QFG1VGA stat screen at night issue

Description

If you look at the stats screen [CRTL+S] at night, it shows purple pixels. I think this only happens in the DOS version. The Mac version doesn't have this issue. This seems to be inherent to the original game since it also happens in DosBox. But since it looks ugly and is an unintentional bug, it would be nice to be fixed if possible.

I've attached saved games for the DOS and Mac versions. The DOS version has two saved games since I'm not sure which file is the nighttime save.

I'm using scummvm-1.9.0.2-win32.

This pixels in question have indices between 58 and 71. In this screen I've also seen "You are getting tired" dialogs appear with a purple instead of sand-coloured background.

The charsheet is picture 904, drawn in script 204 for the character sheet.

Presumably a night-time palVary is interfering, but I don't know the exact mechanics used.

In the forum thread at http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=14316&start=15 micartu reports this is fixed by an Italian fan-translation.

The Italian fan translation in question fixes it by shipping modified 904.p56/904.v56 (pic/view) patch files.

Just tested it, and the Italian fan translation does still suffer from the broken background of the "You're getting tired" dialog in the night stat screen (or rather "Vi state stancando."), so we should explore other options.
