UnicodeDecodeError when building for Android

#1 Post by belorodz » Wed Aug 08, 2018 8:13 pm

So I was testing how the whole android-building thing works and after several hours of fixing mistakes relating to my entire pc being in cyrillic, I finally got it. Ok. 270 mb, I use the "build and install" option. However, when I try to open it, I get an error that I don't get on my pc.
here is the full traceback:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
File "renpy/common/00images.rpy", line 54, in <module>
File "renpy/common/00images.rpy", line 38, in scan_images_directory
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x97 in position 22: invalid start byte

— Full Traceback —----------------------------------------------------------

Full traceback:
File "00images.rpyc", line 26, in script
File "/data/user/0/org.project.deliria/files/renpy/ast.py", line 827, in execute
renpy.python.py_exec_bytecode(self.code.bytecode, self.hide, store=self.store)
File "/data/user/0/org.project.deliria/files/renpy/python.py", line 1764, in py_exec_bytecode
exec bytecode in globals, locals
File "renpy/common/00images.rpy", line 54, in <module>
File "renpy/common/00images.rpy", line 38, in scan_images_directory
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0x97 in position 22: invalid start byte
Does anyone knows how to fix this?

U0097 suggests Latin supplement
Do you have any non-standard characters in the game name?
Specifically an a (that isn't an 'a')

As the error states it has problems "in scan_images_directory" you might do best checking in your images folder for image names that are not utf-8.

I would presume that some cyrillic characters are utf-16, so perhaps look for those (or the rarer types of those) in image names and rename.

Thank you! It totally worked. I just renamed some files that I had doubts about.
