Pirx ASCII VGA font displayed wrongly 2012-04-20 22:54:57

After installing NFOPad on new system I see that some characters, like solid blocks, are displayed wrongly - as triangles - when font ASCII VGA (or Terminal) is set. I didn't notice it earlier, now I've tried also on other computers with various Windows versions (XP, 7) - the same problem. Searching "NFOPad" on google images gives some screenshots with the issue I'm describing.

Other text editors, like EditPlus, display everything properly, so at first glance looks like it's some NFOPad issue. Any suggestions?

Hi, I just tried viewing that nfo file without any issues:

Possibly something to do with your OS's language settings.

If you contact me on e-mail I can try to troubleshoot the issue.

I use Windows 7. In control panel -> Region and Language -> Administrative -> Language for non-Unicode programs, I have set Polish (Poland). When I change to English (United States), problem disappears, but I have some issues in some other applications.

NFOPad is marked as program supporting Unicode. As I mentioned in previous post, other programs (EditPlus, Notepad2) don't have this problem with ASCII VGA font with my current system setting.

In NFOPad, make sure this checkbox is checked:
Settings->Options->Misc->"Load NFO files with western latin encoding"

Let me know if it helps or not.

That's it! This option was checked (most probably by default), after unchecking ASCII chars are displayed properly. Of course earlier I took a look into all program settings, seems that this one I omited.

Thanks for the help.

Hmm, interesting on other machines that checkbox should be _checked_ else you get the very same problem. I'll have to look into that.
