It looks like we have a workaround for this in engines/saga/saga.cpp, SagaEngine::KnownColor2ColorId(), but only for the Spanish version. Maybe it's enough to extend this to the German version? Probably the French as well. At least, I see the same problem with the French version from GOG.

Yes, that would do it. Willing to help?

comment:3 by eriktorbjorn, 4 years ago

I think I've fixed the bug, and cherry-picked the fix into the 1.8 branch as well. There were actually two places where it worked around the colour for the Spanish version. The other affected the colour of the status line. (Actually I found a third one, which I think has to do with the spiritual barometer, but it appears that one really is only for the Spanish version.)

Thanks, the color mistake is fixed, but not the "(non) centered text" bug.

Ah, I got so caught up with the text colour that I completely missed the second part. Looks like it hard-codes the text position, rather than using the text centering feature.

ok, but i am confused. In DOSBox the text is centered. (first screenshot)

comment:9 by eriktorbjorn, 4 years ago

I don't doubt that. What I meant was that ScummVM, for whatever reason, hard-codes the text positions, even thought there seems to be a flag to the text renderer telling it to center the text.

The function to get the text position is called in a number of places, though, so fixing it might take a bit of time. (I'm not looking at this at the moment, so if there are any takers... :-)
