Japanse characters in BVE

Post by Sxldierman on Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:07 pm

Hello!

I am playing BVE 5 using a Japanese route called Kintetsu-Nara. 



As you can see these particular files aren't showing up in the regular Japanese language. I tried installed the Japanese packaged for Win10 but it did not solve it.

So, the other fix I would do in other situations is to manually change it to what is supposed to be. The problem here is they aren't in the correct order, so I don't know which one is which.

Anyone else experienced this issue or can think of a solution?

Thank you very much!

This isn't actually a BVE (or for that matter Windows) problem per-se, but stems from the way the zip was encoded in the first place, and it's subsequent extraction.

Some (generally older) zip programs don't properly use Unicode, but instead encode in the system's native codepage (For Japanese, this would be CP-932). 
When these are extracted, the filenames within the zip get read incorrectly.

IIRC 7-Zip has an option to specify the codepage in use when you open a zip file which will allow you to extract them correctly.
I don't think there are any automated ways to correct the filenames on Windows. There is a utility which does this on Linux, but I don't recall how off the top of my head.

This may help:

Hmm, so using a different program to unzip might do the trick. I'll try that. 

Thank you for the reply!
