Non-standard characters will not display in Streetdeck.
Some of my mp3s are chinese song, is possible to display chinese in streetdeck?? how can i do it?? Thanks
What is standard? US-ASCII ? ISO-8859-1? Windows-1252?Originally Posted by god_of_cpu

It has been written elsewhere that StreetDeck
uses PNG images to display text, rather than
use Windows to render it.
So the source of these fonts would need to
make every character available as a bitmap
in order to fully support unicode.
Maybe this can be done if the fonts are rendered
from a TrueType or PostScript font, but I
don't know the origin of the fonts.
Edit: I see it's actually quite well documented in
Unfortunately, the situation is worse than I expected:
there's only US-ASCII support, so even accented characters
will not display ... That really hurts!
Seeing this I suppose asking for Unicode is too much, but
can't you at least extend the character set to Windows-1252 ?

Version 184.108.40.206 will support ASCII charecters 32-256. You will have to delete the bitmap font files for the fonts you want to have extended support for. If the font isn't found, a font will be generated from the ASCII character set with extended support. You will lose drop shadows, outlines, and all other features specific to bitmap fonts when the font is auto generated.
That's great! But ASCII defines only characters 32-127. So the rest will be probably defined either according to iso-8859-1 (aka latin1) or windows-1252. Windows-1252 (aka Windows Western) is a superset of iso-8859-1; using that would enable a few characters (like curly quotes) that would otherwise only be encodable in utf-8 or utf-16.Originally Posted by god_of_cpu
It would be even better if the character set would be user selectable; for instance you would be able to load a font containg greek characters (above value 127) and have utf-16 encoded ID3 tags be translated to the character set corresponding to the font.
Doing so would enable almost any language, beit that only only language can be displayed correctly at a time without reloading a font.
For now just use TagScanner 4.9 Final:Originally Posted by pim
It will allow you to change ID3 Tags from you native language into English translit automatically. Also you can batch rename files... etc
Are you suggesting I translate all my utf-8/utf-16/iso-8859-1 encoded tags, which display perfectly in every other application, to us-ascii, in order to suit a single broken application?Originally Posted by debugger
