Title: JWPce and the Getting Started Section
Post by: filler on November 09, 2019, 03:22:27 pm
Howdy. As we frequently direct new users to the getting started section, I was browsing it the other day and noticed that the JWPce link is no longer working.

There appear to be two other versions both professing to support Unicode.

http://lazunin.com/jwpceu_en.html
and
https://mijet.eludevisibility.org/JWPxp/JWPxp.html

1. I'd recommend we update the getting started section to link to one of these pages.
2. I recently encountered a game that uses a kanji (獠) that appears in the Unicode set, but not the JIS set, which I can confirm is supported by neither of these versions of JWPce that claim to support Unicode. Not sure if the authors will see this, but it would be nice if the character set could be expanded.

The best place to relink, for JWPCE and japanese resources in general, is Monash University FTP (http://ftp.monash.edu.au/pub/nihongo/00INDEX.html). There are the most useful packages for JWPCE.

I don't know about this particular kanji, but JWPCE does use Unicode internally as I recall. Going to check this later...

Rikaichamp (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rikaichamp/) (Firefox Extension) can recognize it fine.

The OP is almost definitely a bot. This is a copy paste of a message I posted in the newbie section a while back.

This is very interesting, I have been noticing these "AI tests" dumped here, they not only copy the avatars used but also the names. We should pay attention to post count and other details, anyway, I hope your question got an answer by now. :D
