Valid Names in Filesystems

Post by Dave » April 21st, 2004, 7:39 pm

Some scenario names in some locales use characters that are outside the 'standard' ascii range - i.e. chars with a value above 127.

Does anyone know if there is any filesystem used by any platform that Wesnoth supports that does not allow filenames containing such characters? I'm pretty sure FAT is okay, as well as ext2. How about OSX? BeOS?

BeOS (BFS) supports it AFAIK. In fact UTF-8 is used by default everywhere, and to use some other encoding one has to use applications doing "translation" magic :).
