SCI: FPFP: CD 'Dummy Msg' text at cafe, gun fight intros

Reported by: sluicebox Owned by: sluicebox
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: original has-pull-request
Cc: Game: Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist


There are three large message sequences in the CD version with the same text problems. The text has a different structure than the audio and most just say "Dummy Msg". This affects ScummVM's text-only and text+audio modes. This game didn't formally support any text modes in its CD version, which explains these messages. The text is in there though, so a workaround can retrieve the correct strings from their known locations.

To reproduce with the save games, set the ScummVM subtitles option to Text or Both and load them, the messages play immediately. The cafe save game plays one of five random messages each time Helen swats at flies, so wait for that to reoccur or just re-load the save to get a new one.
