Font is missing 'ß' (Eszett)

Font is missing ‘ß’ (Eszett)

Summary: It seems the font used in the german version of the game is missing the character ‘ß’ (also know as “Eszett” or “scharfes S”) or its capital version.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Switch to german version.
  2. Watch a video
  3. Look at the “Close” button.

Expected Results: Seeing the word SCHLIEßEN

Actual Results: Seeing the word SCHLIEßEN, but the ‘ß’ is replaced by another letter.



Game Version: V1.17545

System Information: Windows 10

This might be one of the weirdest things I know off the top of my head, but that’s actually considered an alternate form of ß! ß is supposed to be a ligature of ſs (long s and short s) but in this case it’s a more literal ligature of the long s with a tailed z: ſʒ (as the name would suggest).

On the other hand, it’s also not unreasonable to prefer a more familiar version of the glyph for people who do not consider typography a hobby, heh


I did not know that, thanks Mr Hobby Typographist!
