Feature Request - Please provide the ability to set Character Set (P4CHARSET) in the Perforce Plugin Config!

0 votes
On our workstations we access both unicode and non unicode p4 servers.  Since we need the environment to set P4CHARSET to Unicode for some other reason, but the Wwise data server is not Unicode, we have to keep changing it back manually before running Wwise since Wwise doesn't provide this configuration option.  It should just be another option in the 'Config' below the equivalents of P4PORT/P4USER/etc.  It should also contain an option for 'None' to be set by the server, just like the P4 client allows.

You can try this:

  • Create an Environment Variable:

name:   P4CONFIG
value:   .p4config

  • Create a file ".p4config" in the workspace directory
  • Edit the file, and the P4CHARSET variable
