Reported by: lolbot-iichan Owned by:
Priority: low Component: Engine: AGS
Version: Keywords: Original
Cc: Game:


NOTE: This is an original bug reproduced without ScummVM.


  1. Get
  2. Select Russian language
  3. Start a new game, you will be asked to input Heroine's name
  4. Switch to Russian keyboard and type "QWERTYUIOP-ASDFGH"

Text "ЙЦУКЕНГШЩЗ-ФЫВАПР" is displayed

Text "УЧЕРТЙЮИОП-АСДФГХ" is displayed, something similar to a transliteration of corresponding English letters.

Marking these as low priority, since they're existing issues in the stand-alone interpreter. This should make it easier to keep track of upstream problems vs ones introduced in ScummVM

Hi there, I'm the author of Heroine's Quest. This is an issue within HQ, not within SCUMMVM. Back when HQ was created, the AGS engine did not support Unicode or non-English keyboards, so the translation indeed works by transliteration. As the game is point-and-click and has barely any text entry, this is not a high priority fix for us.
