Character encodings

If your unzip tool asks you which encoding to use, I think the correct choice is DOS Latin 1, or 850. I think this only affects the Ö in the filename BRKÖUT, but I ran into this in unzipping the Mac version with Keka. (The default unzipper gives it a ô rather than Ö.)



I had noticed that some files had long names that were messing with the zipping so I shortened them but hadn't run into a special/non-English character problem. if it's easier to avoid these characters I'll make sure to do that from now on.

This was actually the first time I’ve run into it. Not a big deal, pretty sure it only affects the one filename, just threw me off.
