Font maker. (Polish letters)
Hey.
We are having some difficulties with some languages.
Should it be enough to just use the font maker?
I tried creating a font with these languages and added special characters also but for some reason they show as ? in game.

The font maker showed the text fine.

1. are you sure you loaded the correct "font" in the codes that was generated by the tool?
2. in the codes are you using C++ strings with the L character? - L"ą"

if that doesn't work please attach sample font file, and sample code/project

Problem is the Missing L.
Any idea how to use this with functions?
something like this?
L""+funcStr(2);

RE: Font maker. (Polish letters)
Been searching the web for an answer, but without any luck.
Any ideas?
is there a function of this type in the engine somewhere?
Code:
Str _stringToWstring(const std::string &strPicPath) {
    std::wstring temp(strPicPath.length(), L' ');
    std::copy(strPicPath.begin(), strPicPath.end(), temp.begin());
    return temp;
}

Mmm.. There might be many other solutions also to my problem
What I'm pretty much trying to do is to read a polish xml file and paste it in game.
Where should this format be changed and how?
Okays.. finally found a way..
Managed to change the xml file to unicode.

glad you got it working, few notes:

you shouldn't use any std::string or std::wstring at all, Str is unicode and is enough.

if you're using EE::XmlData then it should support unicode files as well and return Str unicode strings.

L""+funcStr(2); - no, the L needs to be present only for "" texts, if funcStr returns Str then it's already unicode

Yeah. Thanks. Not too familiar with these sort of things.
But everything seems fine now. All localization files running and working.
