Does Lackey support non-alphabet fonts?
« on: March 19, 2013, 04:14:22 am »
Hi, I'm a newbie to Lackey. It seems to be a fantastic program for me, since it is practically impossible for me to
get to offline game meetings.

I am currently trying to create a plugin for a small-time CCG in Korea.
The problem is, the cards are written in Korean.
During play I could get around the problem since the images show the text, but local testers have found it
very confusing to build decks or (potentially) draft using translated card names.

So I wonder if Lackey supports foreign characters at least in card names or texts(Didn't work for me so far),
or if there is a way to get it to recognize card names and text in foreign characters.
It would be great if chat supported foreign characters, but that's an option not a necessity.
Maybe it's possible through outsider font programs like MS Applocale? I'm clueless about programming.
And if it isn't currently possible, could it become possible in any near future?

It may be possible with the new version, as long as you add the needed font.

I tried downloading the new test version for Windows, but it failed to launch because MSCVP100.dll is missing.
I downloaded it and re-installed multiple times, but the error persisted. Is there something I'm doing wrong with the installation? I've read the tutorial for the test version and tried searching the forums but didn't find a solution.

You need the 2010 C++ package from Microsoft.

Thank you Alastair, I got the test version running.
Lackey didn't recognize Korean character fonts though(It did recognize other English fonts I put in the same folder just to check if I was doing things right), so that's a bummer.
I guess I'll have to make do with the images.
But thanks Trevor. Lackey rocks!
