Nice work @JackZ
Good catch, I never noticed the 'r' as in 'Error'

Yep, it’s up to Corjan now to update it now.
Good to find out that it was relatively easy to add the missing characters.
Hopefully this mod will make it to the next v3.7 update.

Hi,
AM3.7 is dead for updates me thinks.

Please do not ask for it in AM4. We will have to wait another two months for a fix and the next BETA update. :twisted:

@Corjan

here's the modified table:

I added G,I,J,M,O,S,U,Y,Z,r,q,t,u and z(as a Z)
I modified the B to be as 8 instead of b and l to be like L instead of I

Code: Select all

static const uint8_t char_table[] = {

@JackZ
Is this the latest and greatest? If so, I will add it to the code.

Yes, I think that’s the most comprehensive I could do.

Thanks Corjan, appreciated.
