I play on the Taiwan servers

I been using FRIZQT__ font for a while now, but it only shows simpl. chinese

So all Trad. Chinese chars show up as blanks, so I get blanks in people names/guilds/text etc...

When people /t me, i get half the message so I /r ??????

Strange thing if they talk in /s then I can see the text perfectly in the bubble

Well, I'm sure that if you follow our instruction on the writing hanzi FAQ + download a traditional Chinese font, everything should be fine.

for instance, here I guess you can find some==> http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/edv/sinopc/chinese_fonts.htm

Tell us if it works...


Like a Star @ heaven


edit: is there a website in Taiwanese for WoW? Cause if there is you should be able to download the language pack. You can on the Continental Chinese website. Just an idea of course.....

ok will try later when i get home

btw, i can type using changjie fine but the trad chars are inivisble but the other players can see them

same with my dmgmeters shows who did what dmg perfectly to others but i'm missing the trad chinese chars

so it seems more of a font problem

i have tried 20+ TT fonts to date and gave up a while ago

Hi,

I checked my system and my 'non unicode' is set to Chinese, but when I'm in the game (French version) I still can not see/write Chinese as I do with Excel or Word.

So I'm impatiently waiting a solution...the week end is coming...

2 things....
first, its friday (OYE), and i will leave office soon and be at home around 7 (all times, bejing / shanghai time zone) in the evening.
bad news for you: i will probably be hitting NEF where the sun doesn't shine, after "hopefully" getting down the nasty doggie in front of him faster than last week in order to get my shoulders and finally be able to say byebye to BWL.
So, judging by my n00bzor raidmates (they are....some of them REALLY are), we will wipe about 1-3 times on chromaggus and 1 or 2 times on NEF, and won't finish before around midnight.

By then: I will then finally, activate my lazy butt and do that tutorial. The font replacement is the first step. Good some of you did it.
I actually have a font pack sitting on my webhost:

http://www.i5studios.com/lvzhou/fonts.zip

Those fonts we tested according to readability and size, meaning this chinese / western font fits perfect in size (text wont be out of frame like with some other fonts we tried) and is readable even at 10px size (my UI is quite minimalistic, so i like it clean and simple).
Please feel free to DL it already (link up there) and try to your liking.
Create a "Fonts" folder in your WoW root directory and extract all the font files from the archive. You will see realmnames, player names, guildnames, etc etc....

the rest comes later tonight.....

(my stupid boss is walking his "observation round"..... if this would be wow, i would PK this basta*d and corpse camp him all day for giving me such a horrible week.

c ya all later

That's a pretty good idea...

???? can not see your webhost link ????

With WinMPQ I have extracted from Chinese version of WoW the following files:

ARIALN
FRIZQT
FZBWJW
FZJZJW
FZLBJW
FZXHJW
FZXHLJW

are these the needed files?

thank you for reminding me to get more INT gear... i seem to need that intelligence boost...
sorry for being stupid enough and forgetting the link... roflmao.
i edit the post above now and include the link right away.

and as a sidenote: for all those who use the fonts extracted from the chinese version. the fonts ara a little more "handwriting style" than my taste allows. they become quite unrreadable at smaller sizes and weak color contrasts. tryout the fonts from the archive and give me feedback. i have tons of asian fonts, and we went through about 60+ different fonts until we found one where the asian AND the western characters were acceptable (arial family).

FONT FILE LINK IN MY BEFORE POST

little extra:
http://www.i5studios.com/lvzhou/movies our raids first vael kill some time ago... you can see me with my crappy gear still, and how i believed fire resist is important for vael... bah... alll crap fairytales... burst dps out and die.... is a better use... lol
have a look if ya like.

off topic???? slightly...
ok, guys if you want to organise a dinner in Shanghai, yes, do it on the KTV section. I won't be able to come (living in England, it would be hard). But maybe an other time, around March April where I'll be there.

Hey, send us the pictures!!
