So far I’ve encountered the following issues with interpreters running Dialog:
Special characters used in languages other than English seem to cause problems in some cases, in combination with Dialog Files compiled to z-code.
- Fizmo crashed with message to use an alternative interpreter (Dialog compiler) and I think this is true für both, english and non-english stories
- Yazmin doesnt recognize input commands with non-ANSII charaters (Dialog compiler), only non-english stories
- Iphone Frotz crashes when typing “erz” (Dialog compiler), you have to type this in non-capital letters and the crahs occurs when typing “z”; I didn’t find yet other combinations of charaters that cause the system to crash
On OSX (Catalina), Lectrote seems to work fine with the Dialog component.
I think this might affect not all other foreign languages which use non-ASCII character sets.
I just wanted to report this and would be glad if the maintainers of the interpreters could work on a fix.
