Hello everyone. As a translator of very Soldak games until Zombasite, I was wondering if I cold translate the latter too, so I made a little test in game. The French accents (, , , etc.) don't function here. Is there a way to have Frnch letters function in the game or is it like Depths of Peril where I had to get rid of them? Thanks in advance for your answer.

I'm actually not sure why they wouldn't be working. All of those characters look like they are in the font. I'll look at it.

Thanks! By the way, which encoding is the good one? ANSI, UTF without BOM? Another one?

I believe you want to use ansi or UTF-16.

Yes, thanks to you. The good encoding was ANSI.

By the way, I have never been able to have accentuated letters working in Depths of Peril. I wonder if that would not be the same problem with a bad encoding from my part.

I've noticed that all accents appear everywhere except in the monster files (bestiary). I wonder if that could be fixed...

Then I have a question : is there a way to genderise the objets names et other adjectives? to genderise the sentences speaking of/about a female player?

No there isn't.

Thanks for your answer, laconic but clear. It is sad for non-English-speaking people, but I am trying my best to give a not too strange French version.

The characters , , , worked fine for me in one of the bestiary entries. Which characters are you having a problem with, which bestiary entry, and are you sure your using the ansi encoding?

I have a problem with the human.

False alert. I could put the human in ANSI and it worked. Sorry for the inconvenience.
