I can't build distributions anymore [solved]

#1 Post by Cart » Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:35 pm

Hi !

I wanted to send a first version of my game to a friend of mine, so i built a distribution.
I've made some changes and I want to send him the new one, but it looks like I can't build distribution anymore...

I get the following error :

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an exception occured while executing your Ren'Py
script.

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xa8 in position 3: ordinal not in range(128)

While running game code:
 - script at line 108 of renpy-6.6.1/data/distribute.rpy
 - python at line 247 of renpy-6.6.1/data/distribute.rpy.
 - python at line 89 of renpy-6.6.1/data/distribute.rpy.
 - python at line 68 of renpy-6.6.1/data/distribute.rpy.
 - python at line 26 of renpy-6.6.1/data/distribute.rpy.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks.

I seem to recall this coming up before, and the cause being that a file had a non-ASCII name. ASCII has few, if any, of the extended European accented character set, and practically no other non-English/Latin characters. Have you renamed any of your files recently?

Thanks.

Actually it was not a file I'm using in my game, but it was a file from this friend I was talking about that should not have been in my game folder at all....

Thanks^^;
