The § character displays as §, why and how to fix?


Recommended Posts

When I run the code in normal java, it works, but when I run with the minecraft forge, it puts an  "Â" character.

I put that code to the preInit event. I can print it to the chat or anything, that "Â" character will be visible.

I'm using minecraft forge 1.8.9 - (recommended 1.8.9) from the official minecraft forge website.

I can solve this by String.replaceAll("Â", "") but it's annoying, and I want to know why is this happen.


Sorry for bad english I'm hungarian.





File config = new File("c:\\Users\\gutyina70\\Desktop\\MyJava\\Eclipse\\McMod AutoChat new Win 8\\run\\config\\AutoChat\\gigi\\messages.dat");
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(config));
System.out.println("read from file: " + reader.readLine());
System.out.println("read from string: " + "§aTEST");


output in normal java:


read from file: §aTEST
read from string: §aTEST


output in java with forge:


[20:05:28] [Client thread/INFO] [STDOUT]: [com.gutyina70.autochat.AutoChat:preInit:31]: read from file: §aTEST
[20:05:28] [Client thread/INFO] [STDOUT]: [com.gutyina70.autochat.AutoChat:preInit:33]: read from string: §aTEST
