sprite.cpp's file encoding is undetectable by GEdit, and probably many other text editors. It's encoding is apparently ISO-8859-1 (or something like that), as supposed to UTF-8 like the other files, which might add to the problems. I don't know how to fix the encoding, so if someone could please fix the GIT repository so that the encoding is correct, that would be great! Until then, GEdit users, just select ISO-8859-1 from the list of encodings and GEdit will properly open it.
