This thread might help you understand what is happening and maybe figure out the answer: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=40741.msg538465;topicseen#msg538465

Good luck.  (nod)

Ask again if after reading it you still need help.

AGS is an old program that still does not support unicode properly. That means you must use font which complies to ANSI encoding, and has all necessary letters in slots 0-255.

According to Wikipedia, Windows-1255 is an ANSI page for Hebrew: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows-1255

Also there was this page in wiki, a little messy, but it gives some info on this problem as well: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/wiki/Fonts

Hi Cassiebsg and Crimson Wizard!
Thanks for these resources. Some of them I already knew... Since I am not that of technical person I search some guidelines article. Something that will tell me "here is what u should do" instead of "here is what u should know".
Anyway I will go over the stuff u sent.

Thanks again!

I read and tried to contact some people who might know - with no success.
I installed ttftowfnsci - didn't help...
