AGS: Maniac Mansion Deluxe (and others) text problems

There are several problems with the text in Maniac Mansion Deluxe.

-As seen in the screenshot, at least in the German text, the letter "z" is replaced with something else.
-Other letters look a bit mangled, in the schreenshot look at "K" and "g".
-There is no access to the hi-res text, despite the game having support for that outside of ScummVM.

Hopefully these problems can be fixed.

The same issue (squashed z character) happens in "The Curse of Life" (and also other games).

After the merge of PR the texts should display properly.
The hires text doesn't work with the upstream interpreter either, so it's not a ScummVM bug.
I'll close this bugreport and report the issue to the AGS devs
