That's boost::format interpreting uint8_t as a char and printing garbage as a result. It's supposed to be the number of players.

Since the possible number of players are already shown in the related tables (map selection and settings for players in MPG setup) it should be considered if the information is needed there.

That whole screen needs a complete overhaul anyway - first I need to finish implementing the dropdowns, then we have to convert to Box layout, and then we can start thinking of improving the screen and considering which information we want on it. So, it will be a while until we get there.

No need to hurry :-) In my opinion this could also be rescheduled to milestone 21.
