Ah OK I get the picture now. You type "say" in EN mode, switch to RL or whatever and type what you want to say in Russian? It all becomes clearer now. :)

I think this plugin below might help. The basic problem is to get the input window to send Unicode, which it isn't designed to do.

What this plugin does is take the code-page characters, and turn them into UTF-8 for sending. It builds up a table on-the-fly from the conversion downloaded from www.unicode.org. In this particular case I used the 1251 code page (Cyrillic) however the general idea could be used for any code page, as you just access the correct table from www.unicode.org.

For example, taking the entry for:


0xC0 0x0410 #CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER A


The script parses the line, and extracts the 0xC0 and 0x0410. The 0xC0 is turned into a single byte which is the key of a table entry (the entry if you type "CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER A" on the keyboard). Then the 0x0410 is converted into a UTF-8 sequence by calling utils.utf8encode. This is the value that 0xC0 "maps to". In this case it is 0xD0 0x90.

Now we are ready to roll. The plugin then intercepts all text sent to the MUD by using OnPluginSend. It does a table lookup to convert the code-page values into UTF-8. The original text is dropped (by returning false) and the new text is sent instead.

To make this work, you need to configure Windows to display the correct code page, by using Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Advanced. Set the "Language for non-Unicode programs" (such as MUSHclient) to the appropriate language (I used Russian for my test).

Now, when you enable the keyboard to be Russian mode (Alt+Left-Shift), as you type you see Russian characters in the input box. With the plugin installed they are converted to UTF-8 on their way out to the MUD.

To see them correctly displayed on the way back (eg. when you say something and the MUD echoes the said text), you need to check the UTF-8 (Unicode) check box in the Output window configuration.

Copy between the lines below and save this text as Translate_Unicode.xml - then use File -> Plugins to install it as a MUSHclient plugin. For a different language than Russian simply find the correct table from the Unicode web site.

Neat, thanks! (Though while it's not a complete fix, any sort of progress is progress :D)
I'm not actually Russian. (though I do know a bit of it) For an all-Russian MUD I'd imagine people would at least attempt to change commands to be more native.

On a game that I work on we've been looking at using UTF8 for various stuff and have a working implementation of it MUD-side, but many of us use MUSHclient so it's a bit tricky. :)

Have you taken a look at Uniscribe? http://www.microsoft.com/typography/developers/uniscribe/default.htm

Sadly, I have no GUI experience to speak of, so I'm not really of much help.

I hadn't read it but am doing so now.

Internationalization of MUDs is somewhat of a tricky issue - I had to recompile SMAUG to even test my code, as it assumed that every character over 0x7F should be discarded.

Anyway, my suggested solution has raised its own issues. It seems that once you turn on UTF-8 in the Output display configuration, any text entered into the command window, other than straight ASCII (ie. less than 0x80) then fails alias processing (if you have any aliases at all), with a message about "Error execution regular expression: Bad UTF8".

I hadn't noticed this before, because I normally type English text.

It seems I have to release a new version of MUSHclient that doesn't both attempting to match UTF-8 in the *command* window (that is, aliases), because it won't be UTF-8, it will be text localized to a particular code page.

There is also an issue of copying and pasting from the output window to the command window (eg. copying some text to echo it, or a player's name) - if the text in the output window is UTF-8 then it turns into gibberish in the command window. So, the conversion from code page to UTF-8 has to be reversed when copying and pasting.

Me neither. ;)

If the general idea works, you should be able to publish customized plugins for the languages which are in use on your MUD. I presume there aren't hundreds.

Basically look up the code-page translations on unicode.org, insert them into the plugin at the appropriate place, and save with some sort of suffix (eg. Translate_Unicode.RU.xml).

I should point out that this is, fairly obviously, a hybrid "work around" solution.

The main problem really is that MUSHclient is not Unicode-enabled, and despite my best efforts previously, it was hard to get Unicode out of the command window.

What you will have here is, if you set the code page appropriately (in International settings), one language you can use in the Command window (presumably your native language), however by enabling UTF-8 in the Output window, all languages can be displayed (with a suitable font).

The proposed "copy from output window" plugin would let you copy your *own* language from the output window, for editing and resending. Copying a different code set would result in gibberish still, because the Command window is not Unicode.

Version 4.26 has now been released, which should work properly with copying and pasting from the output window, if you install the above plugin.

Alas, pasting from other programs is still broken, and what's most important, so is typing things from the keyboard.

My knowledge of Windows is sketchy (I'm an Unix guy), but I would tackle the problem the following way:
* no 16-bit internal strings. That's a pain in the rear, and as you said, there's 6k strings you would have to change, not to mention all function calls and what not...
* the input box itself needs to be an Unicode window, though
* when taking data from it, you would call GetWindowTextW() (always!) then WideCharToMultiByte() to CP_UTF8 if mushclient is in UTF-8 mode and to CP_ACP otherwise.
* ... and the same with MultiByteToWideChar() and SetWindowTextW() the other way

You should at least be able to get typing into the window working, as I am no expert but I managed after trying a couple of things.

First, I added a second language as a keyboard option:

Then, I set my code page to Russian, so that when I used my extra keyboard settings, Russian is what I would see:

Now in the bottom-right corner I see a keyboard code (EN) which shows what I type will appear in English:

I type "say " into the command window (which appears as such), and then hit the keyboard modifier to switch to Russian (Alt+Left_Shift which is the default). Now the keyboard code changes:

Now what I type appears in Russian, which is what I want. However when I hit <Enter> to send it, the plugin switches the code page data into UTF-8, which is what arrives at the MUD.

Applocale is a much simpler way to change the code page, as an aside.

Well that is the hard bit. I tried for a few days previously, but I don't think you can make individual windows in a non-Unicode program to be Unicode.

The source code is freely available, if someone can make it work I would be pleased to hear from them.

To make that work, as I presume the code on the clipboard is UTF-8, would be to make a plugin that does what my "copy from the output window" plugin does. You would hit a function key (eg. F8), the plugin kicks in, grabs the clipboard contents, switches it from UTF-8 to the code page, and puts it back. Or that is the theory at least.

I know this isn't perfect, but my initial tests with Russian seemed to show it worked smoothly enough, providing you didn't try to get too fancy and copy and paste from one application to another.

I suspect the copying/pasting thing might be related to clipboard "types" where the UTF-8 data is not necessarily stored in the TEXT data type (but I could be wrong).

An example of the first plugin (on this page) in operation is here:

This demonstrates how (with a Greek version, using the codes just above), I was able to type in the command window using Greek characters, and send them. The characters arrived in the MUD converted to UTF-8, which were then echoed back correctly in the output window.

It looks like defining UNICODE would (technically) do it, but it'll cough up a whole slew of errors (about 5000 or so) when you attempt this.
