This would be nice to get fixed before the release.

I investigated on that issue. I checked GOG release and my old physical CD-ROM - both do not contain FONA.FNT, so I changed the error level of missing files from error to warn (just for testing reasons) and stumbled over another issue:

WARNING: Tried to access file index 19 for file 'FONA.FNT', which doesn't exist.!
Size mismatch in LZSS decompression; expected 43808 bytes, got 271 bytes!
Debugger entered, please switch to this console for input.

Please note that this game is still not supported. Although parts of the English version are playable, the French/German version aren't working yet.

I am aware it is not supported (yet) and I do not expect any fix soon, but nevertheless wanted to document my findings somewhere and thought a ticket would be way better than mentioning in the forum. If simply ignoring the phantom file during file check would have fixed the issue, I would have even created a PR for that, but I am not deep enough into C++ anymore to fix the consistency check for LZSS decompression.

The non-English versions have junk characters in some resource files, which threw off our resource loader. Fixed in master and branch-2-3:

The fix will be available in the next daily version
