Hi

 

I have a problem with some German letters (ä,ü etc) are not displayed correctly in the debriefing when playing a DCG campaign using 3.49 beta12.

 

DCG-_Debrief.jpg

 

Text from debriefing.txt:

 

Debrief:
 
Mission results:
Hauptmann Matthäus Grünau was shot down.
Oberfeldwebel von Oben shot down a Nieuport 17 to score his 2nd victory.
Oberfeldwebel von Oben shot down a Nieuport 17 to score his 3rd victory.
Oberleutnant Albrecht Steinhauser was shot down.
Oberfeldwebel Rainer Müller shot down a Nieuport 17 to score his 1st victory.
Oberfeldwebel Rainer Müller bailed out.
Oberfeldwebel Rainer Müller was shot down.
Oberfeldwebel Rainer Müller, having bailed out, hitched a ride back to the airfield.

 

 

Is that possible to fix?

 

Best regards

Is this a 3.49 beta12 problem then?

 

Where does DCG get the pilot names from?

Like in real life, in DCG, the pilots, named, skilled, ranked and awarded, are brought to their squadrons by storks (Fi 156 for germans)...

I guess. :blink:

There's a file embedded in DCG.exe.  :P

Yes, I opened the DCG.exe with an hex editor and found the names there.

I've modified the .exe so that it will look for a file called "de_names.dat" before opting to use the German names in the .exe file.

 

The format of that file is simply first_name family_name...

 

For example:

Hermann Voss
Manfred von_Richthofen
Lother Richter

Notice the "underscore" in place of a space to denote the "von" is attached to the last name and not first.

 

The minimum number of names required is 30 but I recommend way more (~100+).  It doesn't matter which first name is attached to a last name.  When DCG creates the pilot names, it'll take a first name from the first column and the last name from the second.

 

Don't leave blank lines in the file (especially at the bottom).

 

New beta posted shortly.
