Beets echoing weird characters, confusing formatting


#1

Hello,
I haven’t used beets in a while, and I remember the solution to this was very simple. It was given to me on a IRC channel, but I unfortunately forgot it.

When using beets, I am getting weird characters and formatting in the console. I can’t remember how to fix this but I think it had to do with a launch option with either Powershell or cmd prompt. I tried many things on bot these terminals, but can’t find the fix.

You can see a screenshot on a similar thread i created here: Screenshot

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I turned the color off in the config file.

I’m still baffled as to why colorama won’t work on that PC (no problems on other machines with same OS and all…)
