Hi everyone :)

I just signed up, searched before I signed up, found nothing so I signed up :p

Anyway, so yeah. I got the Chaos; Head visual novel (in Japanese 日本語), during the installation process, everything (terms of agreement, all the installation instructions etc.) showed up as "????" and some Arabic characters in between.

I ignored all that, didn't think it would really affect the game. Well, when I started playing, all I got in the text boxes were

・・・・エ・・・・w・・・・ヨ・・・・カ・・・ミ・・・

So clearly my PC has a very difficult time rendering Unicode/Japanese characters :mad:, despite having the Japanese IME installed.

I'm running Windows XP 64, and どうもありがとう :D
