Lux maps won't make themselves.

Special Characters in Lux? (umlauts, greek symbols, etc.)

Is there a way to have special characters (umlauts, greek symbols, etc.) in Lux? Doesn't UTF-8 encoding allow for those characters?

Yes, you can use any UTF8 characters in Lux chat and maps. The map editor automatically saves its files as UTF8 encoded, so if you use that to input the characters it should all work. Otherwise make sure to save your file as UTF8 encoded.

Thanks Dustin! :D

I was trying to enter the characters via a text editor, and they wouldn't show correctly in the game. Entering via the Map Editor works!
