    I've tried afew ds homebrew text readers, namely Moonshell, DsOrganize, DSreader, qdsed, but i realise they have common problems..

    Am i missing something? Like some setting or minor text file edits before i move them onto the cart?
    I tried the same file on all the readers, the " ' and some other symbols dont show up correctly.. or they appear as some weird chinese or japanese characters.. Help?


    Im using a R4 by the way..

    Try opening the file up with Wordpad or Notepad and saving it with a different encoding, like ASCII or something.

    I think UNICODE is the one you need, but create some test files and see it for yourself [​IMG]

    Also, some fonts in some programs will simply not be able to "read" the written accents and a lot of other symbols.
