German translation in BfW 1.11.15 - design problem with 'ä'

Post by LAZA » May 29th, 2014, 1:05 pm

I did a fresh installation of Windows 8.1 Update 1 in an VM under Xubuntu 14.04 and VirtualBox 4.3.12.

Some days ago i installed BfW 1.11.13 and played a bit (i did not notice a problem with Umlaute).
Since the new beta 5 was out, i uninstalled 1.11.11 and installed 1.11.15.

I opened up the campaign "The Sceptre of Fire" and noticed a problem with the german Umlaut 'ä':
All other Umlaute are displayed/presentated correct (looking like ö, Ö and ü, Ü) but ä and Ä
are more like the norwegian 'å' with only one point above the a or more like two dots real near (could be an ∞ on the a).

Could please somebody verify this?
Or test look through the german translation if this is an general problem?
If so, i will open up a bug report...

Thanks in advance
LAZA


P.S.: Trying some other campaigns i saw the same effect, so it is a problem with the font type and not graphics cause the other Umlaute shown correct.

LAZA, just to confirm your observation: I´m playing on BfW 1.10.7 and 1.11.12,
switching to "German" I can state that there is a difference between the two versions
when displaying the character "ä". So, I cannot say exactly when the problem had first appeared.

As far as I can ascertain, only text in the "story dialogue" box is affected,
while the German Umlaut "ä" is correctly drawn in all other text (main menu, help, preferences etc.)

So i will open up a bug report about this...

As you have seen right, it is only the dialog box and i was not looking for other examples so maybe it is a minor change - but better now than in 1.12.x!

Thanks for your fast response, btw.
