About This File
An apparent incompatibility between SF2 and SF1 is that the in series two mods often there are files (.ini) encoded with Unicode format.
A common occurrence when downgrading a mod from SF2 to SF1 is therefore having to convert (save as..) a big amount of .ini files from Unicode to Ansi, a procedure which is time consuming and annoying.
Included is a one-click system to convert any amount of files from Unicode to Ansi.
It can be very useful when downgrading mods form SF2 -> SF1 series
Simply unpack and store in your HD root the directories Files_Ansi and Files_unicode. By default I am using this path: C:\converter\files_unicode (you might want to change it accordingly to your needs by modifying ansioso.bat
Make backups of files.
A-From the folder where they belong, copy in the Files_unicode folder the files (mostly they will be .ini) that you want to convert.
C-In the directory Files_Ansi you should have the files with the same name but converted to ANSI format
D-Copy them back where they belong, allowing overwrite
NOTE: Ansioso.bat and stringconverter.exe MUST stay in the same folder.
Also, files'names will stay the same. B careful in copying and moving them from folder to folder.
I downloaded stringconverter.exe from a freeware website. I haven't programmed it , all the merits go to unknown programmer. In the same forum I ve found the batch file which I adpated to the specific needs.
