    As of recently, a few day's ago, most Unicode's are shown as boxes instead of the symbol. Anyone have information on this? This only happens in game; on the steam page or on HLstatsx it appears to be fine.

    Haven't notice that yet, i know sometimes Unicode are not compatible with every browsers and maybe system?
    Here i had to convert the Unicode, showing square at first.

    The only reason I'm bringing it up is because it just started happening to me after a video driver update.

    Then the Unicode font should be installed by default, maybe check Google.
    Also Under my language setting:
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Language\Advanced settings
    Everything is set to "Use Language List(recommanded)" maybe that get reset during your update ??
    Don't panic yet, one of our active member may know the answer :D and will respond shortly.

    Go to "Control Panel" -> "Region and Language" -> "Administrative" -> "Change system locale..."
    Change the locale to the one you're having problem with, and then change it back. Untitled.png Untitled2.png

    It worked thanks for the solution! It requires a few restarts of the computer but it worked.
