GUI: non-english chars in directory names not supported
|Reported by:||SF/clemty||Owned by:|
German users have the directory "Startmenü" (start menu) on their system, ScummVM displays the umlaut ü garbled - possibly because no character for that exists, so it just loads random stuff from that memory position.
While this display oddity is surely just a minor annoyance I think it *might* cause problems if you read random data - maybe some really smart OS would detect that as buffer/security problem?
Workaround might be to check for every value >max supported character and replace it by _ or ? or similar in display (not the string itself, or we can't access those dirs anymore :-)
