Many of us here have downloaded IME to write Chinese on their computer. But when it comes to write them ingame, it's impossible!!! confused

We were looking for the solution for a long time now... Well, we have still found it, but I may have found a hint :



Maybe I was blind before, or maybe it is the 1.12 patch, but it's the first time I see this. The 英for English next to the chatting bar. I've clicked on it but... nothing.... hmmm

Sweetpois told me to use the 智能ABC freeware and Kazuki to use the ziguang pinyin. Well, I can't make work either of them on WoW. 智能ABC doesn't write Chinese at all and I couldn't find a ziguang software.

I'm sure there is a solution, if you Chinese guys could help us here!
请帮帮我们!!!非常谢谢啊!

Well, '智能ABC' is a default one in my chinese version windows system as I told you Globuline. So if your system isn't in chinese, you will not have it.
For Kazuki's ziguang software, I found the URL for you.
http://download.pchome.net/utility/lan/ime/3810.html
Hope it will work for you. I didn't try this one. But my friends said it's handy to use:)

Impossible to download! I've tried other adresses too. None of them worked...

And how come 智能ABC cannot write Chinese hanzi???????

I think we'll never be able to write in Chinese...

You need to download a WoW addon called ClearFont it lets you change the fonts inside wow.

Next you need to download winmpq and open the fonts.mpq file in your chinese WoW. Save the chinese fonts to your computer.

Then you can put those fonts into clearfont and use them in game.

Its pretty simple but took me a few hours to get it all right. I still dont get chinese text in the login screens but thats fine with me, server names dont show up. But you can write in chinese, read chiense, see chinese players names.

That's what michael sent me. I'm waiting for a more precise answer, but perhaps you guys could help us here.

Ok, first of all

- I have a French version client of WoW

I used winmpq to extract chinese fonts from my chinese version of WoW
Then I installed Clearfont addon on my french client.

Pretty easy to install and set up...

I tested this morning before going to work, there was a server operation yesterday...

So, now :

I can read quest in French
I can see chinese caracters for players, or in Chat

But I can't write in Chinese, I still got '?'

I need to investigate a little more, but still better now to see what chinese players are writting.

You're better than I am about computers...
By the way, with my Chinese version, it's the same problem, I keep having "?" instead of characters... So we all have missed something here. . .

If you can share the extracted chinese font with us so we don't need to go through that process again, it would really really great. :-)

This isn't really difficult to do...mostly figuring out the CWOW font files (what to rename what) is an issue. The CWOW font.mpq file is pretty big at 26MB, so I'm not planning to mail it unless someone can park it somewhere for everyone to DL.

Go here for clearfont:
http://www.clearfont.co.uk/

Winmpq is easy to get. Just google for it and you'll see many places to DL it.

Yep... I agree... It's the main issue... Shocked

I put all my courage together and reinstalled the Chinese version of WoW, I took the fonts.mpq file and extracted it thanks to winMPQ. I also "installed" the Clearfonts Addon...
... and I tried almost all the damned possibilities to put those damned files in Clearfonts without a damned success (besides a fatal error, which is a success by itself... affraid)

So, if someone could just put some steps for me to follow (where to put, what to rename, when to pray...) I would be his/her eternal admirer... worship

hope to hear about you...
cheers

Ok lazy guy here )
I'm uploading a zip file at moment .. will give URL soon.
just unzip in :
C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns
Or wherever is your WoW installation.

On my french client, it works, so I can read chinese Hanzi. Of course, I can't write at moment.

In C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\!ClearFont directory there is 2 files you can edit to change font size.
1)ClearFont.lua
2)ClearFontAddons.lua

Here to Download : http://rapidshare.de/files/35995837/_ClearFont.zip

If any question please post here

Thanks a lot !! sunny
worship

... I understand what I did wrong now... there was a lot of things to rename after all...

But, I just have a (last?? ) question:
Do your French text sucks as mine do???
All my accents take too much place... it's very ugly... Crying or Very sad
I'll try to play with Clearfonts in order to change that but... well... my computer skill seems to suck more than my accents right now... silent

Just tell me if you have the same problem...
Arf... Have I to choose between a good French text... and reading the Chinese characters ???

Ō... By the way... I can write Chinese characters in WoW with this modification... Twisted Evil
... but I have to admit that I have a Chinese Windows...

Hello,

I have the same problem, in fact it isn't a problem... Just a matter of configuration. When I extracted the fonts files I didn't know which one was used for bold, italic, normal text.. so I did random choice. just try to change fonts order in config files it must work. You can even use only one of the fonts inside "Chine" directory and assign it to all style.

Will try to work on it later and give the config files. But as I said I'm lazy, the space between caracters with "accent" don't disturb me so much so :p

Wow... Ok...

Do you think you can find a way to see the name of the Chinese realm with the french game??
Does it mean that we'll be able to see how many hours we still can play as well ?? bounce

By the way... is there another way to know that stuff?? Can't we see that in the website of our Chinese account??

If you have a Chinese version of windows, or the Chinese language pack installed, you should be able to hit ctrl-shift and type characters. Works great on my wife's PC.

Aw, I'm too late. I tried to download the file and the server says:

This file has been deleted.
Reason: No download for a longer period. Inactivity-timeout exceeded.

Can it be uploaded again?

Thanks,

Hi, can someone tell me how I should rename the clearfont.tff files. My chinese characters work now but the font itself is pretty screwed. For example I see enemies in green and so on.

Thanks for helping out.

For those of you who dont have a chinese windows but want to write chinese in WoW:

Start/Systemconfiguration/System/Region&Languageoptions/Language/Details:
add "Chinese (Simplified) - Microsoft Pinyin IME 3.0"

Apply

Start/Systemconfiguration/System/Region&Languageoptions/Extended
change not supportet unicode language to "Chinese (VR China)"

Apply and restart ur PC

Like that i am able to write chinese with a german windows/chinese wow client.
Did not test if it works with a non chinese wow client too, but i guess with your chinese fonts installed it will be fine.


If it does not work for you, we can talk ingame.

i think you all have it wrong about seeing realm names and player names and chat and rest of things in chinese... you can!
you all just missed a simple procedure.
could please PLEASE somebody here (the person who did the 1.12.3 patch in C) contact me somehow?
i would be rather interested to know WHAT modifications you all did, how you patch it, because i think me and a few others do it in a different way.
you missed to switch the unicode charset in windows, which will enable all unicode chars (chinese) in the game (reding and typing), plus replacing a simple font...

YOU DONT NEED ADD-ONS, NOR SOFTWARE WHICH COSTS MONEY NOR ANY WEIRD THING! JUST CONFIGURE WINDOWS. PM ME or REPLY HERE
if you need instructions.this forum hasn't been touched for some time, so i dont know at what stage you all are. glad to help...
more detail later... please see screens:

Hi Naklin,

Just configure windows? Cool!

Can you please reply your instructions here? I think everyone would find this info very useful. I know I would. Smile

As for this forum's activity, the members are steadily growing and it's a very helpful website for expats everywhere who wants to play on a Chinese server.

Thanks for your help and I can't wait for your info!

I will post the complete game - fix a few friends and me use, as it is simple as hell.
make a small tutorial and hope it will be "stickied".
In there I will also explain the writing problem.

anyone on this forum knows a little php / mysql?
i wanna put up a page for the vocabulary (instead of an excel file that should be uploaded everytime someone adds something). just one simple page.

its just a pain to do it alone... hehe.

I cannot even cut-and-paste hanji (or Japanese kanji) from another window into a chat field in WoW (English). Garbage is all that appears. I have also tried typing directly into the chat (or friends) field from the Microshaft IME in both Chinese and Japanese and get the same results.

My client can display Chinese all over the place as character names and chat and whatnot, I just can't enter it.

My computer (WindozeXP) is set up to enter Chinese and Japanese, and I have entered Japanese into Skype while talking to a Chinese guy in China, and he said he could read them (as Chinese), so that all seems to work on some level.

I just can't enter it into my WoW English client without said client eating it and making it into garbage. Are there any patches or such I should use?

I have the 2.1.3 (I think...upgrading to 2.2.0 soon) and the FONTS directory already.

PS: I would also be interested in how to configure the Chinese IME to let me enter hanzi via radicals, rather than pronunciation (which I mostly don't know).

can you type JPN / CHN chars in a MS dos command prompt?
no
wrong windows config, my friend

Windows Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages (second tab) -> Check both boxes in "Supplemental language support" -> Click APPLY -> Follow instructions


Windows Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Advanced (3rd tab) -> "Language for non-unicode programs" set to CHINESE PRC (or JPN...your choice) -> APPLY -> REBOOT (is a must)

happy gaming.

step 1) kill the guy who installed windoze on your pc for being inept.
step 2) get a windows cd of your version. any will do, even a copy.
step 3) change unicode locale.

Scampers: i am not using vista. you should not get this error, in theory. welcome to vista land. no idea.

soz, matey... no idea where to find it on vista.
i dont have vista installed and i don't bother to play around with it unless it starts to be pretty stable and bug free (that means i myself can't hack into my own server while sleeping, and only using my left foot). So until then, i am sad for you guys to announce that i will not give any vista support.

PS: Get a decent 64bit CPU, multicore if possible, 1+ CPU per motherboard if possible and inside of budget, and run XP64 . most stable windows (shrug) i have EVER been running.

Thank you very much! I can now copy and paste Chinese characters from WoW to WoW (using Pratt, ugh), and from external documents into WoW.

The one thing I can't do yet is copy Chinese characters from WoW and paste them into an external document. For some reason when I try to paste WoW Chinese characters into Excel or Dr. Eye (translation software), they turn Japanese.

Using English Windows XP, English game client, Taiwan server, Windows non-unicode set to traditional Chinese (Taiwan). And using the latest version of the addon Pratt to be able to copy text from the in-game chat window.

Has anyone with English Windows found a way to copy Chinese from in-game to an external document?


EDIT: Never mind--it works now most of the time. Don't kinow why it sometimes fails. Windows gremlins I suppose.
