Accessing the Chinese Font?

  • #1 ✎ 2 PixelPerfect Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Hi, I’m trying to make a text-based game that uses a custom font for sprites. On the default font list, there’s a HUGE section of Chinese characters, but I can’t find how to type them in any program to actually use them for custom sprites. Any way to type them out, or is it a regional thing? Posted

    I think it's japanese. There's a section on the keyboard for them. Next to the shift button, there're three buttons. The one with "A" is selected. Tap the one on the far right.

    Are you sure you're not confusing them with Japanese characters? If there are Chinese characters, using the CHR$ command should work. I don't know the IDs of the characters though.

Programming Strength Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website Reading I like to read books! Hobbies You mean all those obscure chrs that look like 8x8 blocks of random noise? I don't think you can type them out from the SB keyboard, but I do think some tools were created for creating strings of them. Idk, I don't speak Japanese. Posted

Express Yourself Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Ah. See, I don’t know Japanese and looked up Chinese characters since I couldn’t find any matching Japanese characters to letters on the bottom, and they looked similar enough. Oh well.

    That worked, thanks!

Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength I could be wrong about this, but I'm pretty sure all, if not most Japanese kanji characters were actually borrowed from Chinese, so it would make sense you would think there's a Chinese font if you didn't know Japanese but you did know Chinese.
