cp1251 charset |
January 02, 2008, 09:01:58
Hi, all

I just downloaded the latest miranda version (0.7.3 unicode) and the latest tabsrmm (2.0.0.1 unicode). But I have some messages that I can not see well in the msg log window. Using the simple srmm plugin I see "ми още ги няма на работя", which is right, but using tabsrmm I see "РјРё още РіРё РЅСЏРјР° РЅР° работя". My codepage for Ansi <-> Unicode translation is set to Cyrillic. Do you have idea what I could do to use tabsrmm with cyrillic text?

Use the unicode builds, then you won't have to deal with codepages.

Your problem looks very much like undecoded UTF 8 messages. Either you didn't install 0.7 properly or you are using an outdated version of IEView.

There are no known problems with cyrillic charsets in Miranda because Miranda 0.7 is fully unicode aware.

Hello.
First - sorry for my English.
Second - I faced with same problem: When i send message in russian charset it display in message log window with not russian characters ( english, special symbols, so on). I think problem in display(ing): after reopen tab - message history are normal ( no strange symbols, messages are as I input). Also when I copy wrong lines from message window and paste them - strings are normal ( russian). I have tried set Encoding manually to Cyrrilic and Cyrrilic KOI8-R, set "Forse ANSI send/receive", but strange behaviour doesn`t change.
I work in "windows xp" - so I assume default Encoding is cp1251.
It`s first time I use this plugin, in standart message window russian messages display normal.

Miranda IM - 0.7.12, Unicode (already reinstalled).
tabsrmm -  2.2.1.10, tabSRMM - UNICODE

non standart plugins ( clear Miranda IM from official site, not any build)

smileyadd 0.1.12.10
tabSRMM 2.2.1.10

Wait for reply.

Must be clearly a configuration problem (wrong fonts etc.). There are no known problems with unicode messages in Miranda (at least not with the standard protocols ICQ, MSN, Yahoo and AIM).

You should not use any special encodings or character translations. Miranda 0.7 uses UTF-8 encoding by default and therefore does not need any special configuration to display multilingual messages.

You are right. I remember now what after install plugin messages displays normal. But after I set bigger size on font - messages displayed incorrect. So I tried other fonts and that help - all work fine now. Thank you for reply/solve. You do big work. Now I advise my friends migrate on miranda since it similar to qip, but is better ( in various things ( I am think so)). :)
