SCI: QFG1-JP crash on long messages with Japanese subtitles
|Quest for Glory 1
In QFG1 Japanese (PC-98), long messages crash due to out of bounds drawing that fails an assertion.
Two messages have been found that do this. Both of them are death messages. Crash occurs when subtitles are enabled and language is set to English. That is, English is drawn above and Japanese is drawn below as the subtitle language. The input language doesn't affect this.
Long messages that crash:
open doorin room 321, upstairs door on the left
kill guardin room 38
Sierra's interpreter didn't crash but it did render the text incorrectly.
