My game tester is reporting that in his copy of my game, he is getting the wrong output of an alterable string.
He is using windows 7 while I am using windows vista.
I have code that sets my alterable string to this value upon pressing enter:
But when he types something (example "ogre") into the edit box and presses enter, the alterable string returns the string
It works fine in windows vista. So is there something about windows 7 I am unaware of with using the \ ascii character? What can I do to get around this problem?
I read that the escape character is ^ but I don't want to have a carat when the game is run in windows vista or xp.
