View Full Version : Need HELP to understand these characters!

01-23-2012, 05:49 PM
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:

User 907400 reports user 724094:

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.
