Codepage 1252 - 2008/12/02 23:57 Guten Abend Herr Zander!

Thank you for a good program (Power Admin). But there is some issue.
You've written your program using .Net framework, it's great! But you're using codepage 1252 within it.
It's not a problem while using Microsoft Windows, despite UTF8 is standart for .net applications, but while trying to run your program on non-Microsoft realizations of .Net framework (for example I'm trying to run it using Mono on GNU/Linux -- I'm linux and .net developer and I hard need to administrate ET:QW server using linux, because I'm hosting and playing ET:QW using this OS) it doesn't work, because Mono has been written using ECMA standarts and expects UTF8 codepage.
UTF8 supports German language as well as most other languages over the world, so it will be great if your program supports UTF8.
Thank you!

Here is the stacktrace for poweradmin:
$ mono QuakeWars Power Admin.exe

Unhandled Exception: System.NotSupportedException: CodePage 1252 not supported

Re:Codepage 1252 - 2008/12/06 13:55 Hi Kaleva,

very nice German at first. The codepage is needed to communicate with QuakeWars server, UTF or ASCII dont work. I am trying mono several times with PowerAdmin but get to much errors to fix it, what version you use?

Re:Codepage 1252 - 2008/12/12 02:35 It was 0.9.1.
Today I've tried version 0.9.3
Stacktrace:

$ mono QuakeWars Power Admin.exe

Unhandled Exception: System.NotSupportedException: CodePage 1252 not supported
at System.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding (Int32 codePage) [0x00000]

at QuakeWarsPowerAdmin.Program.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000]

(for example in 0.7.1 no such exeption, but was another one)

mono version 1.2.6+dfsg-6ubuntu3
I'll try with most recent Mono version on weekend
