I could swear that this version has some subtle tweaks to the fonts to the point where it's almost back to 8.3.0 standards (laptop, 1920 x 1080). If so, many thanks for the efforts. Much appreciated.

I found an error at Red Star Mission Viipuri, the German text is missing completely. I think it was already present in versions 8.4.4 and 8.5.4

Thanks, for re'ping. The text is there in english, might be some translation mishap. We see to add it still (post RS release).
