This question relates to the thread I started elswhere.
See http://community.clickteam.com/threads/81970-Read-Accented-characters-from-INI-file for all the details.
Brief breakdown of the issue . . .
In an ini file we have for example "name=Grégoire"
The application reads the ini file and populates say a field with the "name".
When the field receives its name it then uses Lacewing to join a group with that name.
If using an accented (foreign) character it doesn't connect to the group.
If I change the ini file to say "name=Gregoire" (note: no accented characters)
Then it works straight away and connects to the group.
Thanks for any help.
