For some reason the subtitle controls in at least the German version of The Dig are kind of unreliable. For some reason the game, if the global override is on, always jumps back to having speech and subtitles. Even more bizarre, when deactivating the override (I have global on speech only), then subtitles are still shown in the intro, but not the game itself.
My suspicion is that it stems from an orginal interpreter goof, in that the text in the intro telling the player about the Berneo observatory for some reason got linked to the subtitles, even though in the English version it was independent of it and even appeared in speech only (and didn't appear at all in the German version under DOS if text was off). This seems to confuse ScummVM, so maybe the location description can be altered to work like in the English version.
Btw., the alignment of the location description also is off. It should be centered.
