    Question Need HELP to understand these characters!

    Hello everyone.

    I really hope some of you guys/girls can help me on this one!

    I am monitoring a Report feature in a chat, where players can report each other if someone is violating the rules chat rules.
    This feature is working well, except when someone is replying in strange characters.

    Though I can't change anything in the Report feature itself, I was hoping that maybe it was possible to find a converter somewhere?

    This would do a great deal towards helping me keep unwanted people away from the chat.


    Here are some examples of the text pieces I receive:

    Code:
    User 907400 reports user 724094:
    
    =========== START LOG ===========
    
    724094: 197d043b37d782197d5a29
    907400: 5a1d510s0
    724094: f17d5a293990378d7a8
    907400: e990378d7
    724094: 483d228078243
    907400: 2341d85
    724094: 121
    907400: 118d044
    724094: 11894932aa835a8
    907400: 3a8a8118u
    724094: a81189
    907400: 847014428425
    724094: a81184d115818d9c1 2 b5
    907400: 4181287b98d2011d80
    724094: 15c17b192431a6
    907400: 1S7d80
    724094: b141371597
    907400: 6511S7780
    724094: 151f9217
    919: b01397u0
    
    **I know that "919" translates into "นู๋บุ๊ค" and is Thai**
    
    ============ END LOG ============

    Another example:


    Code:
    User 668397 reports user 669934:
    
    =========== START LOG ===========
    
    b11: 1f
    bdd5d8d8: af
    b11: Nc0N481f1f1f1f
    bdd5d8d8: dab7d7d8d7
    b11:  26 26
    bdd5d8d8: :
    b11: w0bN0dac2 26
    bdd5d8d8: b8_c2
    b11: ∆c1f7 26
    bdd5d8d8: b8/
    b11:  26 26
    bdd5d8d8: //
    b11: ˘9d 26˝3cu3b{2601
    bdd5d8d8:  0f@ 0f 0f@ 0f
    b11: b11SeaO1aN2de87
    bdd5d8d8:  0f@ 0f
    b11:  26
    bdd5d8d8: /
    
    **I'm guessing this is chinese**
    
    ============ END LOG ============
    This is the kind of chat logs I sometimes get, and was wondering if anyone knows if there are tools out there or ways for me to convert these and get the original character out of them, or not.

    Any help will be very very very much appreciated!

    What programming language are you using?

    Also, assuming what they are sending are unicode characters, you should look up informaton about how to store & retreive unicode characters for your language.

    Thanks for your response.

    Well, that's the problem.

    I didn't write the code, and is sadly unable to get a hold of the developers as they are on different projects now.

    When users chat in english, everything is fine.
    But we are seeing an increase in foreign users, and when I receive a lot of Reports on some of those users, it really bothers me that I can't act.

    I was hoping that maybe I could find a converter of some sort to translate these codes back into their original characters, if I just knew what to look for.

    Here's another one:

    Code:
    User 907400 reports
    User 900657:
    
    =========== START LOG ===========
    
    900657 449 20 1591821123a90

    907400: b5601397dbd
    
    =========== END LOG ===========

    Any help is appreciated.
