Volume setting does not save

Recently I’ve been playing roblox and noticed that it doesn’t save the volume settings I’ve set before.
Thus, it hurts my ears and causes discomfort. I usually set my roblox volume to 1-2/10 and set it to 50 at windows settings.

If I keep the volume at 10/10, I can hear them at the kitchen, which is 2 rooms away from my room.
I’m using Razer Kraken headphones that are known for their loudness, but I usually keep their volume at the middle, the same audio volume for any other headphones.
I can’t wait for this feature to be added, but as for now I tend to get annoyed by the loudness of the sounds I’m getting. Sometimes I even put the headphones on my shoulders to lower the settings.

Here is my private log file.

I reviewed the log file while this was in PA and found that the user profile name consists entirely of unusual characters, and that this path gets misprinted elsewhere halfway through the file. This is probably the issue.

So, you’re saying that Roblox started to support different languages: Japanese, Spanish, Russian, yet it can’t read the Russian username properly? Bruh.
Edit: nonetheless, I changed my user profile name to EhhDmitry and it still doesn’t work.

This is kind of urgent, since it could harm people’s ears.

Turns out that the problem mentioned by PeZsmistic was correct and I changed my profile folder name to remove the special characters and it fixed. Though it’s not as easy as just renaming the folder so I recommend Google searching it before making changes.

This is also an issue if your Roblox client crashes at all. It resets all settings. Furthermore, when Roblox updates, it resets the volume in volume mixer to 100, which sometimes kills my ears (also using a Razer Kraken)
