Hi,

Thank you for your answer. I've installed 3 fonts for CP 437 (including the one that was in hkSFV folder).

Here are 2 screenshots, the first is a .md5 displayed in MetaPad (a free notepad replacement), the second is a hkSFV display.

The new version of hkSFV will include the option to choose which font you would like to use to view .SFV comments. Hopefully that will clean up this bug for you ... just choose a font that displays ASCII characters correctly :D.

This bug was not related to a specific font, and it has been fixed for the next release of hkSFV.

Furthermore, I discovered that text in the comment pane was not always using the correct font. Despite my best efforts, whenever I tried to show anything with ANSI graphics in that window, it would default back to some other font.

This should be fixed in the next version of hkSFV. As always, let us know if it persists after the next release.
