Yeah yeah we know that. There is already a global ScummVM option for the game language (refer to the README), we just haven't implemented that for V2 yet because there are more pressing issues.

Doing this would require us to get the .exe for each language, then extracting the font from it. Also verb prepositions ("with", "to", etc.) are hardcoded in the .exe, right now we only have them in english, that would be needed, too.

Ideally, we hope to add auto-detection of the language, but that's yet another step.

This has already been done for some languages; if you encounter version of V2 games for which we don't support the font yet, well, we'll need the corresponding .exe file to extract the font / prepositions.
