#7489 closed feature request

GUI: Support non-ASCII characters

Reported by: SF/uweryssel Owned by: sev-
Priority: low Component: GUI
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


In game launcher and directory browser a font is used (defined in newfont.cpp), which has only chars for the first 128 characters. This causes spaces in strings (directory names), which contains ASCII codes above 128, e.g. ä,ö,ü, etc.

The old font (scummfont.cpp) had characters above 128, but in my case it contained a wrong character set (DOS?).

I need a Latin 1 char set for my AmigaOS-Port, which is almost the same as the ISO-8859-1 charset.

Is there a plan to extend this font to support different charsets or at least ISO-8859-1?

We currently have no plans to add consistent support for non-ASCII characters to the GUI code. Doing so reliably and in a portable fashion is a quite non-trivial task, plus we'd have to agree on a fontset (unicode support is pretty much out of the question for now, unless somebody can point us to a low weight, portable solution).

But see also FR #887623.
