Author Topic: zip file contains files with accented characters which break package building  (Read 781 times)

The zip file at sourceforge of version 0.4:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/simutrans/pak192.comic/pak192comic%20for%20120-0/pak192comic-0.4-120-0up.zip

This file contains a few file names with German characters in it. Apparently, somewhere in the tool chain, there is an encoding problem, which caused building a package on OBS for openSUSE to fail.
See https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/games/simutrans-pak192-comic.

To make it work, I just replaced the file names with accent-less characters.  I presumed that that was OK.

Would you please consider using only file names without accented/German characters?
Thanks

Thank you for reporting this.

I'll fix that, so our next version won't use special german letters, that'll includ the ingame names.
I can't upload that until the release because we did a few changes in that objects, which are an important part of our improved balancing, they won't harmonise with the current pakset.
