Merged Homeland items might have odd ansi?

Postby selerial » Thu Feb 24, 2005 12:53 am

There are some items up for auction that are either showing ansi characters or seem to be gobbling up spaces and making the formatting look odd. I believe they are from the new Homeland import zones. Just making a post because I haven't seen one mentioning it yet. I've just listed the items which are showing the symptoms.

Thanks :) It's a problem that's been remedied and will be visible with the next copyover.

That's because on Homeland we used &c0 instead of &n to terminate ansi and &cColorCode instead of &+ColorCode.

i.e. &cW instead of &+W for bright white

I think it was the minor difference between Circle and Diku, but not absolutely certain.
