AGS: Strange 'ß' character in German Gemini Rue version
|Reported by:||laenion||Owned by:||dreammaster|
When playing the German retail version of "Gemini Rue", the 'ß' character seems to be mangled - I've attached an example screenshot of ScummVM running the game in the foreground and a Youtube video with the correct display in the background - have a look at the word "Fuß" in the inventory.
This seems to happen to all 'ß' characters, and the problem doesn't happen with other umlauts. The platform I'm using is Linux.

I just tested with the standalone AGS interpreter (ags_126.96.36.199_linux.tar.gz): The 'ß' is displayed correctly there.
Unfortunately the current scummvm master is still showing the broken 'ß'...

Pity :( This may sound strange, but how exactly do you get the German version of the game? In my GOG version, I'm not seeing any language selection or .tra translation files. Likewise on Steam, the store page only lists English.

I just bought the German retail version in a store :-) (This one here: https://www.mobygames.com/game/gemini-rue/cover-art/gameCoverId,230515/)
The DVD contains (among others) a ZIP file with the English and a ZIP file with the German version of the game (http://medienarchiv.digitalimagecorp.de/Optisch/Spiele%20-%20PC/GeminiRue.cue-iso9660-joliet.html - the cab files are, contrary to their file extension, really just ZIP files).
The German version is contained in data1.cab:

I used the same directory with the contents of the extracted archive as the data directory for both ScummVM and AGS.
Should I donate a physical copy? :-)

That would be helpful to track down the problem, thanks. Could you contact me privately on Discord or via email at my nick at scummvm.org, and we can discuss it further.

Email has been sent (on Wednesday already).

Apologies that I haven't got back to you. I didn't receive the email, and I've been so busy with other AGS bugs, it completely slipped my mind. Rather than email, it may be easier to get in touch with me via Discord, if that's possible.

Finally figured out the issue, and the accent character now shows correctly.

I'd be interested to know if you can check to see if this happens in the stand-alone AGS interpreter as well. If not, then the recent codebase update may have fixed the problem in ScummVM.
