List of Unicode that displays in Vassal on Windows and Mac?

Postby Benkyo » September 13th, 2019, 1:00 am

I added Unicode to my module that displays fine when viewed in Vassal from Windows, but a Mac user reported a lot of characters being replaced by squares.

Is there any easy way to check which characters will display correctly on a Mac, in Vassal?

For reference, I'm currently using:

(list deleted, because I get a SQL ERROR [ mysqli ] Incorrect string value: '\xF0\x9F\x91\x81 \xE2...' for column 'post_text' at row 1 [1366] when submitting!)

... as well as a variety of blank spaces to order and space those characters in a piece inventory list.

Sorry, can't suggest a solution, but you're having a character encoding
problem.
