i have a question on lan messenger.. well my lan messenger some how can't regonize the speical character in ppl's name. therefore, it doesn't records their name and their stats.. some players in my server has that kind of name and they are quite pissed to find that i don't have their stats. i checked on the net and at the folder where those stats are, but their name aren't there.

Lan Messenger should record all characters. I've not really had such problem.
(It's possible you can't see them in Lan Messenger bcuz the font in Lan Messenger doesn't support them but it should save it.)
Here are a few names of my page and they r workng:
f ׮ħ

I've noticed some other problem with names: if they end or start with a space Lan Messenger saves them but can't find them when updating the page and player is on the wrong rank number or has kills 0. I've found this problem and should work now.

What you can try doing is:
1. See if the player .ini file is in the working dir if it is there then it records the scores but it doesn't update them.
2. Try using "my stats" to see if it can find the scores.

PS: Send me the player name if you can so I can try and see what happens.

What operating system are you using? Win95 /98 /2000 /XP?
Can you see any errors in the log?
Can you check if there is file "playername".ini in your working dir (with playername = the name of the player).

Maybe you should try the Lan Messenger 1.6.1 beta wink.gif

ok.. here is what i think is the problem.. my computer can't read ANY speical character on dflw.. u know hte name editor? i tried to change my name iwht speical characters, but they won't let me.. so bascially, on lan mess, i get these name starting with speical characters, my computer blocks them.. so it will be something like " ff f dsa " and like u said about lan messenger don't upjload names with spaces, it basically don't record the name at all.

also.. wat ini file? where do i look?

no error in log.
