SCUMM: Cut off text in the Macintosh version of Loom

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Loom

Description

I've known about this for quite a while, but I haven't seen any proper bug report about it, so...

The Macintosh version of Loom uses a high-resolution font for the text and - I think - for the notes. (The Macintosh version of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade took this even further.)

ScummVM does not implement this, and instead uses the same font as the DOS version. For the most part this works well, but at least in one case it causes text to be cut off.

I'll attach screenshots of that scene, both from the Mac version and the DOS version, as well as from the game running in a Mac emulator, for comparison. Basically, the text is laid out the same way but appears at different position in the Mac version.

I've submitted a pull request to add support for the Macintosh font. I've added a new screenshot to show what it looks like with those changes.
