    why not copy the files and re-name/translate them.. that way you can use them in both instances without ruining one or the other? And no were not saying you should translate them to use them with a 'broken' piece of software, were suggesting that the software isnt 'broken' it just doesnt do exactly what you want it to do.. wouldnt it be great if when I bought a computer it had one program on it called "Idoeverythingforeverybody" and it did everything that everybody in the entire world wanted it to do.. that'd be sweet...
    Sell me your stuff.. please see what i'm looking to buy

    I see what you mean. But then, it would waste a lot of resources without much benefit. "Translating" to US-ASCII is not much different from dropping characters, which is what we are facing anyway.

    Freetype

    god_of_cpu, I understand you need bitmap fonts for your UI. Why don't you just render them at runtime? Freetype could do that for you.

    Streetdeck already can create the fonts at runtime and infact will if you don't have any fonts in the skin directory. The whole point of having bitmap fonts though is so you can implement cool looking and usable skins with free form fonts with drop shadows, outlines, glow effects, warping, etc which you lose out on if you simply auto generate them from a standard ttf font.
