DIG: Wrong Dialog Plays?

Reported by: SF/bugzapper Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM

Game: The Dig


Win32 0.3.1cvs (2002-12-04)
English Full Talkie version

From the provided save, talk to maggie and ask her
about the apparition.

The subtitle says, "What WAS that apparition?" but the
actual voice that plays says, "Do you think it was trying
to get one of us hurt?".

Maggie replies, "I don't know, but apparition seems like
a good word for it."

Obviously, Maggie's response only makes sense if
Boston says the former.

Boston says wrong dialog savegame

OK, after playing a little while longer I just heard where the
proper place for that dialog is.

After Brink dies, you talk to Maggie through the
communicator and ask her, "Do you think it was trying to get
one of us hurt?"

It makes sense there since it's referring to Brink's death but,
once again, makes no sense in the earlier bit of dialog from
my original bug report.

Played a little further...
After you unlock your first door in the nexus if you call up
Maggie you can click one of the dialog options to tell her
about it. Boston says something like, geometric shapes are
used as the passcode to the doors. She says nothing in
response (no subtitle either).

Now, I can't remember what happened there in the original
game but that doesn't seem right. Maybe SCUMMVM
causes a few bits bugged audio throughout the game?

Possibly related to #655043 (FOA: Sophia speaks with Indy's voice)

I also see the Brink saying "What WAS that apparition" but hear him say "Do you think it was trying to get one of us hurt".

However, in my version Maggie replies: "Beats me, but did you notice that it seemed to have dropped something?", which fits...

so maybe this is just a bug in the subtitles?
