The network version has been updated!
RVGL now uses Unicode (UTF-8) encoding for the game internals and all text content. The game is also capable of reading Unicode filenames, using UTF-8 on Linux and Android, and Wide Character support on Windows. Text files that are not in valid UTF-8 encoding are assumed to be in ASCII (Windows-1252) and converted accordingly to UTF-8.
The game font has been updated to provide support for several additional Latin alphabet sets and diacritics. For a complete list of supported alphabet sets, characters and symbols, see the Internationalization section of the RVGL Documentation.
Player names and Profile names now accept international characters through Unicode support. Because of the UTF-8 encoding used, however, this can limit the number of typeable characters. The chat message length is not restricted, though.
Also, it is now possible to pay in Yen...

Back To Lobby:
The Back To Lobby in-game menu option can be used to go back to Frontend without quitting the online session. This allows players to change their name and car. It also allows the host to re-launch the session with new settings, such as different number of laps.
This release brings some changes to the player status behavior. Players who are active no longer give up their slot when going back to change their name / car. Slots are relinquished only when the player chooses to spectate, or is forced to do so by the host.
The host gets a new Waiting Room command Ctrl-A to force a player into active state. This complements the Ctrl-S "force to spectate" command. With the new player status behavior, it may be difficult to guess whether a "Not Ready" player is holding an active slot or not. To make this information available to the host, the 'Spectator' state is prioritized over 'Ready' state on a selected player. This means when a "Not Ready" player is selected and highlighted, the status will show "Spectator" if the player is actually a spectator.
CPU Car Skins:
The AI cars now take a random skin from among the available ones. If the same car appears multiple times, each one is able to use a unique skin. Skins are also randomized in Random Cars mode, both online and offline.
- 32-bit Linux compatibility on old distros is fixed yet again. (#295)
- The screenshot save feature (F8), which was broken on Android, should work now (requires a hardware keyboard).
- Laps above 127 appear correctly in Waiting Room.
