Using Cyrillic / Hieroglyphics in .ini??? how to?

Here is my problem: for exemple (! old pic !)

Skin for Winamp. All meter shows right info from measures, but when i need find info about song using google url it returns ==> "?????"

Even if i'll add info manualy

[Variables]

Same problem with Cyrillic

It's only ASCII and the default ANSI of your Windows that Rainmeter can operate basically.
However, Unicode can be used now in the latest 1.2-beta.
So try saving config file as UTF-16 (little-endian, with BOM).

The above issue should be solved by this at least. But I think that the following winamp problems have a little bit different cause so if actual skin is not seen, I cannot say anything.

Actually i'm working on skin what can find covers on current played track. And it works fine, but not with Cyrillic & Hieroglyphics :(
I was thinking about Unicode and it helps incompletely. Saving in UTF-8 helps to save Hieroglyphics manualy. But not automaticly
Using this

Code: Select all

["#ADDONSPATH#NirCmd\NirCmd.exe" inisetval "#CURRENTPATH#CoverArtFinder\CoverArtFinder.ini." Variables Track "[MeasureTrack]"]
i get

Code: Select all

[Variables]
Track=???? - ETERNAL BLAZE    
manually typed in

Code: Select all

["#ADDONSPATH#NirCmd\NirCmd.exe" inisetval "#CURRENTPATH#CoverArtFinder\CoverArtFinder.ini." Variables Track "水樹奈々- ETERNAL BLAZE"]
works fine =)

...and i think this is end( Seems its in Rainmeter problem..

NirCmd cannot write any Unicode characters. After all, I guess that it is all causes of this problem.
