display text with some special character.
i want to display text with some special character (multi-bytes).
So, i tried...

add "Text Style" element.
add "Font" element. and these characters set into "Custom Chars".

and code below.

Code:
    TextStyle *ts_p;

    ts_p = TextStyles( UID(1485557134, 1216083411, 4256206237, 52244128) );    // Text style element
    Gui+=textTest.create("test string漢字…", ts_p).pos(Vec2(1.0f, 0.9f));

then, multi-bytes white space character (between "test" and "string") shown as "?". However "漢字…" is ok. (Screen capture attached)

What should i do?

Hi,

Could first let me know why do you need to have a different kind of space character, and not the regular space?

RE: display text with some special character.
Our using text is written in Japanese (multi-bytes character).
So, multibytes-space is not special for us.

Reason why we don't use regular space, avoid line feed problem.
(Before that, always locates a space after all symbolic characters (like "!.,"), our rule)

Please see capture (attached).

And relational problem...

Now, EE replacing character (that cannot show) to "?".
But character "?" is usually in our text. So, it makes mistakes at scenario-writer, Debugger, and so on.

Different character can use for?

RE: display text with some special character.
Thank you for the explanation,

I've adjusted font generation source code to process full-width space correctly.
http://www.esenthel.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=9004
Now available in Source Code update on Main Branch:
https://github.com/Esenthel/EsenthelEngi...49a617f551
(Binary download has not yet been updated, only the source code)

After updating your source, and recompiling both Engine+Editor.
Please re-create your font:
Open the Font, make some change to any of the parameters in the Font Editor, and close the Font Editor window.
(without making any changes, the font will not be regenerated).

After that, it should work OK.

At the moment, you can change it only by modifying engine source code:
https://github.com/Esenthel/EsenthelEngi...t.cpp#L240
Code:
case '?': sign[0]=i; break;

replace '?' with some other character.
