New and Improved Ship Names Help?

Recommended Posts

EaWFoC uses a special type of TXT file which you cannot set.


Oh, really?

You mean a Unicode file? With a proper BOM? Notepad is perfectly capable of producing those.

Try selecting "Unicode" as encoding when saving a new file.

Interesting, Mike.nl, because some time ago I did that and it didn't work... (Must be on some of my older, crappy topics). I needed to copy the game one and rename it...  :P

I don't know who said that, but he was being ignorant or jumping to conclusions.

Save a file as .txt, Unicode encoding and it will work.


I've checked the resulting file with a hex editor and the file is identical to the existing files, if you use the same shipnames, of course.


This isn't about ease of creating new files, it's about the principal. Copying existing files isn't necessary.
