icon Crash at startup when having non standard letters in windows account name (+3)  
Using the steam version. When I try to start the game it displays the "couldn't access DROD data [...]" error and exits. I'm pretty sure this is because I have an non standard letter, an '', in my windows account name and thus in the file path of the user folder. I tried creating another windows account without funny letters, and then I could run the game. But I don't want to have to change my account to able to run this game!

Steps to recreate: Create a windows account with a funny letter, e.g ''. Try to run the steam version.

Yes, this description sounds like an accurate assessment of the issue. Apologies for the trouble. This needs to be fixed.

Bump for me.

Probably a duplicate of this issue.
