Either it works so good or nobody bothers to test it.

I get "cannot read the config file" eventhough ckfwrc.txt is in the same folder. Using winxp.

I guess the reason is that it expects "ckfwrc", not "ckfwrc.txt". Perhaps I spend too much time using *nixes.

But nice to see somebody trying to run it.

It actually reads "ckfwrc", it's just that I added the extension in my post.

Uh, works for me. I think that's because the file actually does have an extension, but the option to display file extensions is disabled in the control panel.

Anyway, I changed the code so that it now tries to load "ckfwrc.txt" if the one without extension cannot be opened. Please download again, the link is the same.

Few minutes ago I released a new version that should reduce the memory consumption by about 25%.

I wonder, does anybody use it?

Oops. I meant to answer your PM.

Yes, I would like to add it but this has been a busy week for me.
Don't let me forget to work on it if I haven't updated the thread in a few days.

Hmm. So I was going to add this to the 'how to' thread now but I don't really know what I'm supposed to link to. This thread? Is there a webpage I missed?

Also are there any simple instructions on how to install and use CKFW? The guide should be usable even by people with a very basic understanding of computers.

Aye. There's no website yet.

Now that's a tough one. I never was good at writing such basic guides, and the program itself is hardly easy to use, just look how *nix-ish the way you configure it is. So what I wrote in the OP is all I have, as far as user manuals are concerned.

Nevertheless, I think I could try to write a computer-novice-friendly installation and usage guide. I do have to write a README after all. Unless something happens, I guess it'll take seven days at most.

For most of the time it works fine, but whenever I try to enter these combinations
Quote:
+ <9а> : <ɐ>;
+ <aа> : <ɑ>;
it only emits "DUM! You're wrong!" system sound. It starts wiðout ɡiviŋ ænɪ ɛɹɚz ðɔʊ.

The second ‹a›s on the left-hand side of both sequences are Cyrillic (U+0430), not Latin (U+0061). This won't work, unless you actually type the Cyrillic ‹a›s and not the Latin ones.

This is likely what you want:
Quote:
+ <9a> : <ɐ>;
+ <aa> : <ɑ>;

Just a comment about using this with MS Word: it doesn't like thorn. CKFW won't enter it, and putting it on a keyboard layout doesn't work, either. This is the only application I've found with this problem, and the only character that exhibits the problem, as well.
