Entertainment Sonic Origins Isn't Launching For Players With Unicode In Their Name
Premier League transfer news live, today! Latest updates on the summer window
We are set for a very busy summer of transfer activity, as the latest transfer news keeps flooding in and plenty of big names are expected to be on the move in the coming months. Your browser does not support this video [ VIDEO: Premier League analysis ] The 2022 summer transfer window opens on June 10 and closes at 6pm ET on September 1. With Erling Haaland already signing for Manchester City, Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG (for now), plus Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool — and plenty of other superstars in demand and contemplating moves — this feels like it will be a summer like no other.
Thejust dropped, fixing almost 80 known bugs found in the retro collection game. However, some players are still completely unable to launch the game on PC, with an apparant oversight making it impossible to boot it up on the platform.
According to some players, anyone with a unicode character in their Windows name (any symbol that doesn't appear on usual QWERTY keyboards) isn't able to launch. This is affecting players with accents in their real names, and is something that seemingly remains an issue even after the huge patch.
2022 3M Open prize money payouts for each PGA Tour player at TPC Twin Cities
Tony Finau is leaving Minnesota a richer man than when he got there. He played brilliantly on Sunday during the final round of the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota, carding a 4-under 67 to capture his third career PGA Tour title. He trailed by five s hots entering his last 18 holes, marking the biggest comeback on the PGA Tour since Sam Burns came from seven shots behind at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Scott Piercy, who led by four shots entering the final round, carded a 5-over 76, struggling on the back nine, finishing tied for fourth. Finau is taking home a check worth $1.35 million.
This bug was spotted early on, with users over on Steamwhy they were unable to launch Sonic Origins on PC. One user said it dies on them "almost immediately", and is seemingly caused by the game being unable to process unicode in the game directory.

Left: Default SonicOrigins.exe not booting. Right: My edit of SonicOrigins.exe, changing the "%APPDATA%" and "%%APPDATA%%" strings in the game to go to "C:\SOSav\". However, while I do have the technical know-how for this not everyone does and this affects a LOT of people. (2/2) — ĐeäTh (@DeaThProj)
"The game STILL won't boot if your windows username has a unicode character", writes DeatThProj. "Is there hope for a fix or am I stuck with a $40 digital paperweight?"
Heat, Lakers interesting in acquiring Dennis Schroder?
Dennis Schroder will forever live in NBA infamy for his decision in 2021 to pass on nearly $100 million from the Los Angeles Lakers because he felt he was worth more. © Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports Houston Rockets guard Dennis Schroder Rather than accept $84 million, Schroder opted to bet on himself and hit free agency. By the time it was all said and done, he was forced to take a $5.9 million offer from the Boston Celtics to share point-guard duties with Marcus Smart.
As the user mentions in their tweets, they have found a fix for it. However, given the kind of change it requires from the player, it's unlikely that casual and/or younger fans would find this viable, or even realize what the problem is in the first place.
