    [SOLVED] shared memory: string encoding changed after patch 5?

    hi e1

    (the change could have happend with patch 4 already, not sure)

    i havent raced any Nürburgring track variation for some weeks;
    but two days or so ago again;
    so i just now realized the string encoding in shared memory changed:

    till now my overlay displayed 'Nürburgring' as 'Nürburgring' (im looking at the german ü here)
    <= so the 'ü' letter was as an 'ü' present in the sm-data

    now it looks like this in the sm-data (on my system: win 10, could be different on other systems): 'Nürburgring' and my overlay displays it this way (unknown characters are displayed as 'space') 'N rburgring'
    (string encoding now changed to (real) UTF-8?)

    it isnt a big deal, i already changed my code so it displays everything correct

    but: is there any info about that change in string encoding in the shared memory api?

    thx and greets

    Edit: so to complete my monologue
    i just read today (04.07.2018 o.O ) in the SM-API changelog after patch 5: string encoding changed to UTF-8
    explains the changes
