Ace game not working when localized

Bug #220319 reported by Geir Hauge on 2008-04-21
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
tuxmath (Debian)
Fix Released
tuxmath (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tuxmath

When run with "LANG=nb_NO.utf8 tuxmath", nothing happens when "Spill" -> "Romsjef" is selected ("Play Arcade Game" -> "Ace" in english). When run in terminal, "MC_StartGame() failed!" is output when that menu choice is selected.

Running with "LANG= tuxmath" works as expected.

This is tuxmath version 1.5.8 on ubuntu 8.04rc

I can't reproduce, but I guess I need to have nb_NO language pack installed.

What actually happens? Does the game just not do anything, or does it crash?

Does it do this for any other menu options?

I can confirm this, and it only seems to do it for that option.

I get this in the console:

MC_StartGame() failed!
game_initialize() failed!

The screen blinks, and stays on the menu.

I got the same result when I tried with one of the other languages tuxmath is transleted to, czech. So it's not limited to norwegian.

Upstream can't reproduce and hence presume it is fixed in their version.

They are planning on making a new release which I'll try and get backported.
