Special Characters in lang file

I don't know what I do wrong, but when I try the german letters Ä Ö Ü ä ö ü ß they either get replaced by another character or remove them and the following letter. In the original story with german subtitles, those letters do work! Does someone have an idea how to fix that?

It's because the game's text is based of the English language which makes Å Ä Ö for example unable to be read. Smile

But sence the game itself can do it, how to do it in a cs? Is there some kind of filetype I have to use (Unicode, UTF, or so) or is it a code instead of the characters? It is really annoying to do instead of Ä Ö Ü ae oe ue.

I think you need to change the original font file so it got the special characters and that can be a pain.. But I think someone else have a way to make it work

I had that problem too since my last name includes an Ö. I fixed it when I converted my .lang file with Notepad ++ to "UTF-8 without BOM", test it! Shy
