    How can I use latin1 (german) with Sebastian's flash chat client? ajdigital's flash client supports german special characters like , etc.

     
    • Hi!

      Did you use the .swf's that are included in the client-download? Or did you compile the .fla's yourself in Flash?

      I am using my client too with "umlaute" and it should work fine....?
      What browser, flash version and os do you use?

      Sebastian

      Hey Sebastian...

      I am running RH8.0 with Java (j2sdk1.4.2_04) and NFC 1.1.0 (nfc-1.1.0-bin.tar.gz)...

      I downloaded your chat client from http://www.sebastian-eichner.de/projects/nfc-flashclient.zip and used the swf that were included. No compiling on my side :-)

      Thanks for the quick response...

      Flash Version: I think 6 (how can I find out about it?)

      Browser: Firefox 0.8 on XP, but I just tried IE6 on XP and it also doesn't display Umlaute correctly. ajdigital's client on the other hand also displays them with IE6 correctly...

       
    • What you might want to try: on http://www.sebastian-eichner.de/projects/ you will also find a server version which handles both flash and java clients. This version is basically an extension of 1.1.0.

      Perhaps this server solves the charset problems, as i am using this version to without any charset issues.

      I just downloaded your nfc-server version, but my umlauts are still corrupted. ajdigital's client still displays them correctly...

      Your static room extensions works, which is great. You have to use Tomcat in order to use httptunneling?!

      Great work!

       
      • Yes, tomcat is required by nfc for http tunnelling (for both java and flash clients).

      Sebastian... Do you have an idea, why your flash client doesn't display umlauts, while ajdigital's client does??? This would be the last thing to launch my grande chat ;-)

       
      • It's about the character encoding that the client uses. It should use utf-8 which includes all necessary characters. But it seems that something goes wrong with the en-/decoding.

        Anyway you can still start with ajdigitals client and later change to my client if you like. Both are compatible.

      Can you somehow automatically login a user with ajdigital's client or was that the reason why you created your own client? I am using a database that already has unique user_names to log into the chat.

      I have no flash-coding experience but some experience with php and tcl etc. Which file would I have to check that does the en-/decoding in your client?
