Ultima 8: Non-ASCII characters not displayed

Reported by: criezy Owned by: mduggan
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Ultima

Game: Ultima VIII: Pagan

Description

I tried playing the French version of Ultima 8 from GoG but the accentuated characters are not displayed. With DosBox they are displayed correctly.

The issue exists both in the intro and in the conversations in game.
I am attaching two screenshots.

Screenshot 1 (U8fr_intro.png): text should be "tel l'idole d'un idéal pathétique" but the text displayed is "tel l'idole d'un id al path tique".

Screenshot 2 (U8fr_conversation.png): text should be "Où suis-je?" but the text displayed is "O suis-je?".

I am also attaching the DosBox screenshot for that second example.

This is with current ScummVM master (d07c009) on macOS.

Thanks, I think this is probably the same cause as #11491, but helps to know that two languages are broken, not just one.
