  • RR - Chinese Unicode issue - SOLVED

    Hi, I'm using Chinese language Windows XP. I could use some old version RR without problem, but some latest versions (I downloaded in Sep and Dec of 2011) can not support Chinese lanuage properly. While I'm playing some nusic with Chinese name, it will show Martian language:-(

    Hope the new version RR can solve this problem. Thanks a lot.

    Happy New Year!

    there are no known unicode issues at this time, just make sure you are using a NEW(est) version of winamp, older ones do not support unicode
    and with out any specifics, there is no problem to solve...

      Hi mitchjs, thanks for your reply. But I don't think it is an issue of winamp version. The problem even occured during the RR installation while I'm choosing the installation language as Chinese. I run two version installers in the same computer, same environment. The April 2011 version has no issue, but the Dec 2011 version shows unrecognized characters.

        again, i see no problem... all you telling me there is unrecognized characters, you dont tell me where or when...
        or even show me
        there are NO KNOWN unicode issues in RideRunner

        i assume your not talking about chars in the installer itself....

            so.. im still confused
            just say the installer has wierd chars (i see they are differnt now, since you mention RideRunner, i didnt look at the installer images)

            like i said before RR has no KNOWN issues with unicode
            if the installer is the issue, like it looks like it could be
            JUST SAY its NOT RR its the installer


            the installer is the UNICODE version of INNO...
            im unaware of any issues with it... im sorry... but i dont think i will be able to solve the problem
            easily... i can switch myself to chinese
            what are your exact location settings... for what OS too?
            if XP i might not be able to do anything, cause XP is a little different with chinese version

            i updated my simplified chinese lang file for inno...
            just a FYI, Chinese is not offically supported by inno as of now, only unoffically

                  Hi mitchjs, your image shows in Japanese but not Chinese. It's so surprized that I can also display the Japanese char correctly if I choose installer language as Japanse. But the the problem exists if I choose Chinese.
                  BTW, my OS is XP SP3 Chinses.

                  I will not highlight this issue if it is only related to the installer. The issue is that the RR Dec-2011 can not show the MP3 name in the RR skin. See below snap ...

                    INNO:
                    Japanese is offially supported!!!
                    CHINESE IS NOT!!!!

                    RR:
                    i assume you are using a FONT that supports unicode...
                    this is going to be hard to test for me, cause its XP Chinese
                    i did have that OS once, its a special version of XP (due to the complexity of Chinese)

                            Yes, I can confirm that RR is able to display unicode characters properly. One of the common problem I find with Chinese songs from China website is their ID3 tag is not save as unicode. Try using a ID3 tag editor to edit and save as unicode and try again.
