DW: Error in arch chancellor examine speech

Reported by: SF/ikifoo Owned by: dreammaster
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Tinsel
Keywords: original Cc:
Game: Discworld


When examining the Arch Chancellor at the beginning of the game, Rincewind speaks two lines of dialog:

"As far as leaders go-"
"the only reason I'd follow him into battle is out of curiosity"

However, no speech is played over the first line of subtitles. Instead, both samples are played (in order) over the second line of subtitles.
Additionally, a subtitle is displayed for the first line regardless of whether or not the player has subtitles turned on.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Run Discworld until you have control of Rincewind.
2. Leave Rincewind's room and visit the Arch Chancellor
3. When the Arch Chancellor is finished speaking, examine him
4. Note that the first line of subtitles has no spoken dialog, and that a subtitles is always displayed for the first line of dialog

I've verified that this is a sample problem in the original game (GRA version). It seems they identified and fixed it in the SCN version - in that version the speech is correctly split between the two texts. Since this is how the original sample files are in the GRA version, it's not something that could easily be fixed.
