Subject: Rocklatin in Player
From: Kjell Ericson (Kjell.Ericson_at_haxx.se)
Hello every Player owner (especially from non-english country),
I and Mats Lidell have implemented a charset called Rocklatin1 in the Archos
player. It is more or less Latin1, but modified because extra characters/icons
(and some missing).
The thing is that you shall now be able to view national characters in all
texts (filenames/menues). Most characters already existed in the old
LCD-version of the player (but not used until now) so there you see hardware
characters, but for every other characters (especially the new LCD-version) we
are dynamically mapping needed characters to the 4 or 8 definable patterns
If the 4/8 definable patterns are taken we show a substitute character instead
(as you are used to already).
It works in the simulator and it works on tested hardware. Bugs are very
likely to exist so I would like everyone interested in this feature to test
it. Mats and I are swedish, so we only have about 6 national characters
when doing realistic tests.
Send a mail telling your result. Don't forget to say if you have the old or
new LCD hardware.
Documentation telling some details is is coming soon on the web.
