  • Unicode in effigy inscription is broken in-game

    Wanted to add some unicode characters to my inscription, and it worked fine.

    Until I got in-game, where it's completely different.

    I'm so sad now I have an retarded effigy.

    Latest patch (http://store.steampowered.com/news/15035/) did not fix this.

      As obnoxious as his use of Unicode is, this is actually still worth taking note of. So, will it not display other languages properly, like Russian, Chinese, and Portuguese? I don't have any reason to believe those languages are supported at the moment, not when I see some slang from other languages in full Roman letters instead of their own characters.

      I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

        Well, u'kno, if they allow it and it displays properly on the creation screen, it should also work in-game too. Either disable it completely (which I would agree with) or make it work properly. This is misleading currently and made me waste my effigy.

          Yes, what appears to be perhaps a letter from an unknown African language which incidentally looks very much like a w is being replaced by a Greek letter, I believe it is omega. And again, what appears to be a cursive o is replaced by another letter, this time I believe it is sigma. In the meantime, what appears to be a cursive l still looks to be a cursive l, and otherwise, the message is cut short for an apparent lack of font resizing, something which does work properly in dota_english.txt when editing hero names. Also, it looks like the cursive v is a filled square which is obviously not a normal letter. So I don't know what that's about, but it could just be the v and the rest of the message, in other words, the elipsis, but I am not sure. Maybe the sigma before the filled square is part of the elipsis. I don't know much about Valve's coding, so it doesn't really make a lot of sense to me.

            Still not fixed.

            Seems like the same problem happens with Cyrillic script: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=151157
