utf-8 error on mac os

#1 Post by biza » Thu Nov 10, 2016 6:21 pm

I did not play freeorion in few months and yesterday i updated to new test version 0.4.6+ build 2016-11-07.3e4f18a.
Meanwhile i also updated macos to version 10.12.1 and now i cant load or save game!
Autosave works ok:

I checked path and file is there.
But when i try to open "save" or "load" menu i get message "Invalid UTF-8" ?

Please help me :)

Cheers

Looks like a known issue, which is fixed in git, but not in the latest test build:

A build from a week or two ago should probably also not have the issue.

Or Tuesday, I had to change my schedule for producing the weekly test builds a while ago. Although I'm currently considering switching back to Monday, as the reason why I had to change my schedule is gone (and unlikely to come back).

We'll see ;)

Anyway, please report back if next weeks test builds still didn't fix the issue for you.

Thank you Vezzra for new build!
Now, with new build I can normally load and save games.

Cheers!
