That's an old IBM standard that had those funny box-drawing-shape "characters" you can see on, for example, this Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia....iki/Code_page_437 .

Look in the next-to-last group of rows of the large table (labeled "B" to "D" and with a yellow-orangeish background); those angular squiggles (which can be used to "draw" boxes and lines by writing several of them next to each other) are what you're after, aren't they?

If so, then using the expression "Code page 437"(*) might help the relevant people in SuSE user forums, or at the help desks of these game providers, to understand what his problem is.
