I know I sound like a real noob asking this question, but I really wanna know the answer. How do you put the little squares (a.k.a. flags) in your name?

Use the Windows Character map. Copy whatever text character you want in your name from it. Into a Text file, Notepad, or Wordpad. Then type out your name.

Now, select it, and press "Crtl-C", copy it. Go into the game, and in the name box press "Crtl-V".

Oh Mac. Yeah, instead of "Ctrl-C" its "Command-C" a.k.a. "Apple-C". As a matter of fact, any time someone tells you to "Ctrl" any key, use the Command/Apple key instead.

As for the Character Map, I don't know where it is in the MacOS. Do you use SimpleText? Does it even come with MacOS anymore?

Ahh I found SimlpeText. I just searched in my compuer "Simple" and it came up. I had to start classic mode (OS 9.2) to start the program. Now is there a specific font I have to use?

No, it doesn't matter what Font you use.

Although some have more characters than others. If you use Zingbat, or another Bizarre font, it won't show up in the game, except as a bunch of letters, and numbers. Since JK2 doesn't use the Zingbat font.

I just found out somewhere, that MacOS has a newer text editor, OSX optimized. SimpleText was for MacOS 7-9. Simple Text will work just fine, anyway.
