Charset

Hi- what options are available for the char_set option? Actually- that may be the wrong question. I'm getting some odd console artefacts from the recent changes to use the 'fancier' characters for features such as water, lava, trees etc (overlapping characters, strange dots in other places), and would love to revert to the old; Had real trouble working out what everything was in the Shoals... How can I go about doing that?

Thanks!

Re: Charset

Can you play console in Comic Sans? I'd switch for that.

Depends on your terminal/shell. If you play in Windows by just executing the program (or via a shortcut, which is where you specify fonts), then no, because Comic Sans is not a proportional font (where all characters have the same screen width.)

Note that Comic Sans is a font, however, and not a character set.
