SHERLOCK: Chinese language support

Description (last modified by trembyle)

Both games are currently unsupported in Chinese. This ticket provides a record of the current state as we add these games to detection.


  • The game crashes in the opening movie with no error, nothing in the log. You can skip this by pressing ESC to start a new game.
  • Fonts are rendered improperly. There are lots of warnings (such as invalid character encountered - 130!). There are also graphical glitches in toolbar (words intermittently overlay), although here the characters are correct since they are bitmaps.
  • I tried this on the Chinese Traditional (Taiwan) version. According to #11933, there is also a version in Simplified script.

Rose Tattoo

  • Game does not start.
  • Assertion failed!; no log message on debug level 10.
  • File: common/base-str.h:176
  • Expression:
    _str && idx >= 0 && idx < (int)_size

Both games should be supported now (there's a bugreport (14424) stating that Rose Tattoo is not really playable, though)
