When i try to start ultima-6 with the fm-towns speech, scummvm crashes. This happens with version 2.7 and with version 2.8 (daily build) on my windows 11 machine. It also happens with version 2.5 (sdl-1) and with version 2.7 on my raspberry pi 4. Without the fm-towns folder, the game runs fine. Its the gog-version of ultima 6.

Summary: Crash when starting ultima 6 with fm-towns speechULTIMA: Crash when starting Ultima 6 with FM-Towns speech

Hello, could you clarify if on Windows 11 the 2.8.0git version you tested with was the installer one from the ScummVM download page ("ScummVM 2.8.0git Development Build - Windows Installer") or the version from the ScummVM Buildbot page (for Windows 64 bits under "ScummVM latest
Branch master" column)?

If you tested with the installer (which has optimizations turned on) could you also test with the version on the Buildbot page (which should have optimizations turned off)?

Also, could you test on your RPi 4 with the daily build for RPi for 2.8.0git as well (from the buildbot page, under column "ScummVM latest
Branch master")

Buildbot page is here:
