    Getting kanji to appear properly in Winamp?

    I was just wondering if anyone can help out on this. I've been Googling around, but I mainly get information on Winamp errors in Japanese versions of Winamp 5. If anyone can help me out with this, it would be much appreciated.

    winamp uses a bitmap font (for skinning) meaning it will only have the ~50 or so roman characters/symbols. do you have the japanese version?

    I've actually just got the lastest build for U.S. users. I was wondering what I can do to get kanji, hiragana, and katakana to show up on my playlists. I was also wondering if you could maybe help out on getting Korean characters to show, too.

    Just need to do parts A and B in that link, BTW. Then in Winamp, go to Options > Preferences > Options > Display, uncheck "Use bitmap font for main title display".
