I have made small changes in OpenMW encoding module (ToUTF8), EFSReader, MWWorld and now OpenMW can display localized strings :D

Before change:

after change:

There is still some minor thing with space between some characters like "i" and "?" (l with stroke)
as you can see on image above (red marked parts), but I guess it should be easy to fix.

I will push a branch called "fonts" to the github in few moments.

Switching between encoding will be available via commandline option:

Code: Select all

 --encoding 
by default en (english) is used.

                                   used by default
and removed "font" branch becouse of rebasing this change to upstream/next. New branch is called fonts2

Minor issue: You call it font encoding, But I think the correct terminology is character encoding, right? The font is just the graphical representation of the characters on the screen, but what you fixed is at the esm/esp strings to utf8 conversion stage, right?

btw. this seems to address this issue: http://bugs.openmw.org/issues/3

Could someone confirm that our current font also supports Russian letters? (I guess all other languages should be covert now).

Yes, you're right - I will correct it in next commit.

I will reassign to myself it if you don't mind.

Sure, no problem.

Anyone? Building my next branch should offer an easy way to test (if you can build OpenMW).
