:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

These buttons do nothing when I click them. I already know the cause which is the non-English character (ö) in my Windows username. When I made a new Windows account and gave it a butchered spelling of my name (one with the ö missing) and started AoE2 from there the buttons worked perfectly fine.

This has always been the case for me with AoE2DE but I thought it was time I wrote a bug report since I never got around to writing one and I can’t find any existing bug report of this.

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a new Windows account and include an ö in the name.
  2. Start AoE2DE
  3. Go to either Load Game or Editor and click the open folder buttons to see that nothing happens.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
When I click the “Open Saved Games Folder”, my saved games folder is supposed to open.
When I click the “Open Scenario Folder”, my scenario folder is supposed to open.
