#2572 closed defect (wontfix)

Language Parameter is not set correctly

Reported by: SF/vorph999 Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:



While reinstalling my System I encountered a little bug. When adding several german games, the language option is not set correctly for all titles.

Here a list of games I tried to add:

Indiana Jones 4 - OK Curse of Monkey Island - NOT OK DotT - OK Feeble Files (Floyd) - OK Indiana Jones 3 - OK Lure of Temptress - NOT OK (I know it's WIP) Maniac Mansion (V2) - OK Monkey Island - OK Sam & Max - OK Full Throttle (Vollgas) - OK Simon 1 - OK Monkey Island 2 - OK Simon 2 - OK Broken Sword (Baphomets Fluch) - NOT OK Broken Sword 2 (Baphomets Fluch - Spiegel der Finsternis) - NOT OK

The games that were not configured correctly used the language flag "English". In most cases, this is not a problem at all. In COMI for example, the difficulty selection screen appears in English, even though a
german Version of the game was used.

Kind regards

To process your bug report appropriately, we need you to provide the following additional information:

* ScummVM version (PLEASE test the latest CVS/Daily build) * Bug details, including instructions on reproducing it * Language of game (English, German, ...) * Version of game (talkie, floppy, ...) * Platform and Compiler (Win32, Linux, MacOS, ...) * Attach a save game if possible * If this bug only occurred recently, please note the last version without the bug, and the first version including the bug. That way we can fix it quicker by looking at the changes made.

This should only take you a little time but will make it much easier for us to process your bug report in a way that satisfies both you and us.

Thank you for your support!

All COMI versions are identical, except for the LANGUAGE.TAB file. You have to select the language manually, unless we fundamentally change the detction code, it'll never be able to detect the language.

The Lure engines doesn't even fully support the english version. We'll consider adding support for other versions once that is ready, and at that point it'll also correctly detect them.

Finally, the sword engines currently make not attempt whatsoever to detect things like the language. If you feel that should be changed, please file a feature request, and I'll try to get somebody to look into it.
