SCUMM: Small problem with original GUI in German MI1 CD

Reported by: GermanTribun Owned by: AndywinXp

ScummVM: Newest 2.7.0.git
Game: MI1 German CD

There is a small problem with the German original GUI. I can not check if that already was the case in the original. The "Save" button was correctly translated as "Speichern", but sadly that word is too long for the button, as seen in the screenshot. Thus either the save GUI from MI2 has to be used, which is identical but shortened the word, as seen in the screenshot, or the word "Sichern" has to be used, which is also correct and short enough (as was used in DOTT).

I'm going to check the original, and as usual (you should know by know...) if the original is like that, I have no reason to change it: as always, preservation of the original product.

OK, fair enough, though In my mind sometimes preserving the original product can be a bit too orthodox.

I see what you mean, I really do, believe me; so please don't take that the wrong way.

In the past we had a lot (and I really mean a lot!) of complaints about ScummVM not behaving like the originals did. And in the current world where old adventure games are resold on Steam/GOG without the original executable but directly using ScummVM, I feel that we should be moving towards a preservation effort, more than having personal taste influence our decisions, expecially when this project has really become an official mean for those game to be re-released.

I hope you understand my point.
