Hello this is my first post here.

I'm suffering a problem. My EVE client is english, but I use my own language in some channels with my pals. And after a patch or something I don't know, all the characters except english have become little square boxes.
This really suck, Man.

My mac is okay outside EVE, I mean the damn-box-problem only happens while I'm playing eve. Other time I can read everything.

I want to know if I can change the font that eve uses, I think it's an encoding problem or font related problem.

Thank u for all ur ideas.

You will need to Replace the Arial.ttf located in /Applications/EvE Online/Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/Windows/Fonts. The version that comes with the Mac EVE client does not have full UNICODE support.

You can get to this by opening up Applications in Finder, right-clicking EVE Online, and "Show Package Contents". Go to the final fonts folder and copy the full Arial.ttf font in.

You can get Arial.ttf from a Windows machine, or I believe someone made an auto-patch to fix this, but I have yet to see it.
