[Discussion] In Game Font Fix for characters with Chinese characters in their name

Sticky   [Copy link] 16/13004

I know... we are not suppose to change our files... but this may make it so people can PM you in game again
so I am going to let it stand ... until IGG gets off their @$$ and fixes the problem!
Please post your results so I can be sure it works!

Every player must do this including non affected account (names)...
Even if person with the character in their name changes the file, a person who hasn't will still see the Chinese character and not be able to PM them.

You can try this.

Open the following file with notepad:[code]D:/Voyage Century Online/voyage/Core.ini[/code]Go to the line 89 ( not always line 89). You will see this:


Change it to:

codepage= (insert the correct number from tables below in post #3)


In short, just the delete the number 936 and leave it blank or insert the correct number from the tables below. This way the game wont use 936 encoding anymore, you will lose support for east Asian characters like simplified Chinese. Its not necessary anyways, no one talks Chinese in game...

Solution thanks to DSOFA

Windows 7 instructions... step by step

From experience in windows 7 you will probably have to set your user account controls...

1) If the file will not save you may have to set your user account controls
to do this in Windows 7 :

easiest way is probably to just type "User Account" in the start menu:
(but get there how you want to)

2) then move slider bar to "never notify" and click "ok"

3) NOW RE-BOOT your computer

4) Open word Pad and find the file:
first set word pad to show "All files"

5) Then select the file named "core"
I do hate win 7 that it doesn't show all file extensions...  so choose the one I circled.

6) go to the bottom of the file....
in windows 7 it is the 3rd line from the bottom

7) Change the number to the one you want or leave blank

8) SAVE the file

9) Close word pad.... and re-open file to check that it was saved.

10) If file was successfully saved CHANGE USER ACCOUNT CONTROLS back to " Always Notify"

11) Re-Boot Computer

12) play game

I have a special sign in my char name due to space (alt+255) between surname and christian name made long ago. After last patch I had a kinda chinese sign between Rakal and Woolver. I changed the codepage to 1250. Now I can receive PM again.

found this:

so looking at your version of windows if it is eastern/central European you may want to use code 1250 but if you have a French version you may want to use 1252
American English / English and western European versions of windows use 1252... just read below.
so of course the Chinese would never figure this out... because the code 936 is for simplified Chinese versions of windows.

not sure why 1250 works for an American... but as 1250 and 1252 are most common numbers they are probably nearly the same thing.... either way you are taking away the Chinese characters   yea!

would be interesting to have you try all 3 options... and see if it act any different...

I am still not sure if EVERYONE (well both parties trying to pm) needs to do this in order to be able to pm a person with a space in their name... or only the person with the bugged name needs to do this...

I have not seen anyone with a bugged name in 24 hrs to be able to test this.

No, actually this wasn't my idea. It was posted by storagehouse a while ago in some other thread. It was removed few hours after he posted it. It was obviously forbidden because it involved messing with the game files.

Later another user had some serious trouble with his game, he couldn't run it. He made a thread and posted his log files After reading his log files, I came to a conclusion that this character encoding is causing him troubles. I posted this solution to him although it was against the rules and, luckily, it worked perfectly.

Ele picked this up from that thread and gave me the credits for it.
I just wanted to say I'm not the first one who posted this solution, the credits should go to user storagehouse, or whatever his real name is...
