SCUMM: Wrong charset used when pressing pause key
|Reported by:||SF/simsaw||Owned by:||sev-|
|Game:||Monkey Island 2|
When pressing SPACE in a SCUMM game that supports pausing by this key, it displays a message like "Game paused. Press SPACE to continue." When using this key in a localised version that uses special letters like German "umlaute", then these affected letters are not correctly displayed. So in the German version of Monkey Island 2 it would display
"Spielpause. Dr cken Sie die Leertaste."
"Spielpause. Drücken Sie die Leertaste."
The ü is clearly missing.
This seems to happen because SCUMM games use their own charset. I'm not sure if it's ASCII but it is different from ANSI for sure. ScummVM probably tries using the ANSI charset here which doesn't work.
Tested with Daily Build from September, 11 2010.
