When I load a game which contains two byte stored character (sorry I don't know its percisely English name) in the file name, by drag it into the emulator, the name in title bar will be glitched.
But it's OK if you load the ROM in normal way through menu File -> Open ROM.
This could affect almost everything based on file name when game playing because sometimes it was converted to invalid characters.
It's hard to reproduce or describe the glitch because the language difference, so I'm not sure this bug occures on your computer. But it appears frequently on mine. I'll try to show the explaining with pictures below.
1.This is the general, I loaded the game by menu, its name displayed as "F1竞赛场" which means "F1 Circus" in English. Everything is fine.
2.This is the occation I drag and drop the game into FCEUX, its name glitched as "F1绔炶禌鍦", that's a junk phrase meaningless. In this scene, many bugs occurs.
In almost every popped out file location confirming dialog, it refuses to directly continue, because the file name has invalid characters.
and FCEUX could not write the WRAM data to .sav file.
I was ever happy that FCUEX supports wide chars, please check if the name converting program has bugs, thank you very much. And I won't blame if you don't understand the bug due to not everyone knows my language...
