ULTIMA 8: No umlauts / eszett

Reported by: laenion Owned by: mduggan
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Ultima
Keywords: Cc:
Game: Ultima VIII: Pagan

Description

In the German version of Ultima VIII the umlauts / eszett (ä, ö, ü, ß) are missing from onscreen texts and are replaced by a simple space character (see the attached example screenshot - "wei " should be "weiß", "da " should be "daß", "K rper" should be "Körper", "r tselhaft" should be "rätselhaft").

I've just pushed a fix for this. The menus still display in English but that's a separate bug (#11601).
