Yes, I think it should be possible using an existing script.... I could be wrong. I will have a go

Thank you. It almost works but it’s adding caches that don’t use any special characters in the title and some that use characters that aren’t letters. See the output below:

You made it with 53 of 50 needed matches
Only the needed caches are printed

It’s very close though but I’m not sure why it’s picking up caches with normal English in the names.

The script is picking up a few characters like full stops and quotation marks.... will try to fix

I have added a bunch more special chars to the exclusion list, I think this is as good as its going to get.

Problem is that I cant just search for the european special romanised chars.... as chinese counts as well, I would have to search for every possible chinese character. So, we have to do it the other way and search for anything we have not excluded.

This will pick up any cache where there are weird characters.

Okay no worries thank you. It’s still far better than me trying to find those caches I have found with the European characters on my own. I am very grateful for your work on this, thank you.

GreyHams: try string.match(haystack,"[^ -~]") which will exclude the characters space (chr(32)) to tilde (chr(127)), since special characters are after tilde in the ASCII table.

Edit: scratch that idea. It's too lenient.
