The Ultimate mobile CJK machine

Yes, it’s a cute one called sigmarion III.

First, you need a CJK locale information called WINCE.NLS, which you can find from 0bang.org

You have to build a single CJK truetype font on your own, because you can’t link fonts continuously on Windows CE as you have done with Windows XP. You might try versions of CJK truetype fonts such as CyberCJK, Code2000 or MS Arial Unicode. Link any CJK font you choose to the default Tahoma font.

!!! efont.ttf is a bitmap only font, so vector-oriented display schemes like Picsel browser can’t render its glyphs.

This is, actually, a custom-built truetype font based on the XCJK project, only for personal use currently, though. It weighs about 13MB. 🙁

If you don’t have time or courage to build your own CJK font, I recommend that you try CyberCJK with antialiasing and ClearType on.

The first picture above is showing how to type Chinese characters using CE-Star. Of course, you are also able to input Korean and Japanese as usual using Diopen, MS-IME or ATOK at the same document.

  1. 음, 감동적이군요.
    시그마리온3에서 한글이라…
    님의 글을 보면서 설치해봤는데…
    쓰기 읽기, 잘 됩니다.
    다만, IE가 기동이 안되네요…. T_T
    어느 분의 글을 보니 디오펜설치시 mslang을 덮어써서 그렇다는데…
    시그마리온3에 사용되는 mslang을 얻을 방법은 없읍니까>

  2. 이런,… Wince.nls 링크가 깨져 있네요.

    본 포스팅의 시그3 한글화는 초창기 버전입니다. wince.nls를 도입하고 CJK를 넣어 표시하는 것은 마찬가지입니다만, 지금은 입력을 위해 굳이 디오펜을 깔 필요가 없습니다. CE.NET 순정 IME 도입이 가능해졌기 때문입니다.

    시그3 한글화의 노력은

    http://cafe.daum.net/sigmarion3

    에서 계속되고 있습니다. AGOO君에 의한 순정IME 도입법 등 여러분들의 노력이 패키징되어 있습니다.

    그리고 문제의 DLL은 그냥 지우면 ROM에 있는 애가 드러날 것입니다.

    그럼 좋은 기계 즐겁게 활용하세요..

  3. 답변에 감사드립니다.
    어제 밤에 바로 가입했습니다.

    참, 문제의 dll을 삭제했는데… 다시 나타나지는 않더군요.
    음… 인터넷브라우저, 다른 것을 찾아봐야겠네요…

  4. You can download the file from the following url.

    mfiles.naver.net/6fb55a8194c9a3153347/data1/2004/8/6/284/wince-508.nls

    rename it to wince.nls before move it to your pda.

    Sorry for the broken 0bang.org

  5. i am sorry to tell that i couldn’t open the url you provided. is there any problems or what?
    would you please send the file to me?
    wonthen@sina.com
    you are so kind and appreciated.

  6. i installed CE Star to my sigmarion3.
    Version for Jrdana720(handheld) and for PPC2003,
    also other version. but i could start into task bar, but inline for the chinese input couldnt be appear.

    pls let me know what version, and how to install, also how to star input inline?

    thanks for your cooperation.

  7. I have no idea about what you say with ‘inline’, but having installed CE-Star successfully, you can bring up the IME by pressing CTRL key if I remember correctly. You have to turn-off the Japanese IME, though.

    I bought CE-Star 2.2 long time ago, but I’m no longer using it for now.

  8. THNANKS FOR YOUR KINDLY REPLAY.
    “INLINE” MEANS THE TEXT BOX FOR CHINESE YOU SAID IT COMES WITH CTRL KEY.

    I ALSO SUCCESSFULL TO ONSTALL CE STAR AND STARTED IT IN TASK BAR, BUT CTRL KEY WAS NOT WORKED TO ENABLE TEXT BOX TO COME UP.

    DO YOU REMEMBER YOU USED CE STAR FOR HAND HELD VERSION OR PPC VERSION?

    I WILL TRY IT AGAIN WITH TURNING OFF JPN IME AND ALSO ATOK.

    I COULD INSTALL ANOTHER CHINESE IME WHICH NAME IS “UNIFEP”.
    FOLLOWING IS MY WEBSITE TO SHOW IT.
    http://www.geocities.jp/asukal_trader/Sig3china/sig_chinese.htm

    ANYWAY I APPRECIATED YOUR REPALY AND HOPE YOU CAN ACCEPT ME TO LINK YOUR PAGE ON MY SITE(ALREADY LINKED!)

  9. >to mr,goodhyun
    Thanks a lot! i got it!
    At the beggining, i couldnt understand your meaning of “turn-off the Japanese IME”.

    I opened its registry and check it cearfully and tried to change a Key of them. after changed its key, CTRL key was workable and TEXT BOX was came up to the screen!

    Default key;
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mobem\CE-Star]

    “EnableJapan”=dword:00000001

    Changed key;
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mobem\CE-Star]

    “EnableJapan”=dword:00000000

    The Version of CE-Star was “Standard,for handheld PC-Jordana720.

    I found some of files were not able to copy into windows file by its install program, so i copied them manualy.

  10. After installed CE-Star with my way as avobe, Internet Explore and PixelBrowser don`t work.

    Please do not use this way or CE-Star if you don`t have any your own solution of that.

  11. I doubt IE or PixcelBrowser would conflict with CE-Star. I had no problem when I used CE-Star, as my original posting’s images reveal.

    For your request to be linked, I’m managing my blogrolls with http://bloglines.com/ services. So if you can provide the RSS, then I can happily subscribe your blog. I’m not linking URLs manually, because it’s actually lots of burden to keep abreast of any changes involved.

    Last one more thing, I recommend you use the genuine MS-IME for inputting Chinese. Actually, above solutions are quite outdated, because I’m no longer counting on third-party solutons for localizations. You can build your own dlls using Platform Builders, and pick up any necessary modules.

    Cheers.

  12. Tnanks and sorry my comment had been late.

    1;Problem of the pIE & Picsel Browser, i got solution of them.

    i tried to increase the Font Cash Size of OS to 300.000 by useing Small Tweak. Then it will be worked as usuall. Now CE-Star is working,also.

    2;thanks for your acceptance my linkage to your page.

    my blog ;http://asukal.seesaa.net/
    my home page;http://www.geocities.jp/asukal_trader/

  14. 그러니까 ce-cjk를 깔면 한글도 표현이 된다는 얘기를 하시는건 아니겠죠?
    저는 한글화에는 성공을 대충 했는데, 브라우저상에서 한글이 안뜨는 문제 때문에 고민하고 있는 사람이거든요.

    혹시 뾰족한 수가 있다면 답글 부탁드립니다.
