Please, provide a list of the game files, including sizes and dates

i.e. from a command prompt, get in the game's directory and type: dir > files.txt

And provide the contents of files.txt

I just bought pharkas german and it seems that they put script patches of pharkas english on the floppies. I guess sierra sci just passes over those issues.

You can fix the game by just renaming 14.scr/14.hep, 90.scr/90.hep and 170.scr/170.hep and or moving them out of the game directory. The game will work afterwards.

I have moving this files, but ScummVM start this game with error in In-game console.

Ok, without this files Pharkas now start, but the text in the Intro's and Inventary is english, in DOSBox german (with correct Umlaut).

already known. It's a bit strange, the fonts included do not contain extended chars (so no umlauts), that's why we don't display them, the inventory title issue is really strange. The titles of all items are english instead of german and they are really german in sierra sci.

i just noticed that the title is also not translated in our sci, but it is in sierra sci o_O

comment:11 by m-kiewitz, 13 years ago

just solved everything - you may now also rename the script patches back to their original names (they work now) - fixed in r52259
