This kind of thing should be be handled internally by RetroArch. They should code a function to replace those special chars by underscore char on systems that do not support special chars. I think RetroArch coders are just lazy on this matter as it's such an easy and very simple thing to code.
Thanks for the chars list that needs replacing. I'll code a function to replace them by underscore char _
But, this feature will only work to display game images (unzipped/zipped).
This new setting will not do do anything else, including rename/delete images or show images in thumbnails view.
But the following chars cannot be used in filenames. Emu Loader will not be able to replace them as they are used in folder names...

Also, it works only for ANSI strings. Unicode strings are not supported for obvious reasons.
