In Irensei the player who have first 7 (Black exactly and White at least 7) stones in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line of his color wins, if no stone of these 7 covers any point on the outer two lines of the board. The irensei.exe that is offered under [ext] contains a computer opponent with 3 different strength levels and shows menu and dialog text only in Japanese language. If anyone wants to translate these texts (e.g. with [ext], it is necessary to get the Unicode numbers of the Japanese characters of all these shown text pictures. Unfortunately even in the output of the program Strings from Mark Russinovich for this irensei.exe I could not localize these texts. I also only found sites that provide such identification by specifying more complex parts ("radicals") of these characters ("kanji") from a list that contains 231 of such more complex parts. With such big radical lists I found these strings shown in irensei.exe after hours of search:

Are there any programs that find a kanji character (and their Unicode number) by specifying the elementary strokes (一, |, 亅, 丶, ノ, ...; altogether at most 20 different strokes) and the number of each of them in this kanji?

I'm a little confused, (not sure why Unicode is needed, the radicals traditionally number 214, and it looks like there are a few typos in the above Japanese)...but you can look up kanji and their Unicode numbers in any number of ways at WWWJDIC. Here's the multi-radical search page: [ext]

Do you require Unicode for localization? Looks like the wiki takes Japanese text: 井連星・いれんせい...but then converts it to Unicode, hmm.... Anyway, I could translate from screenshots if someone wanted to post them, (maybe even do a better than Google Translate! :) I'll check back here in a day or two.... --mkmori
