Hello,

 

it already recognizes LFNs on FAT32, but only up to 13 unicode characters. The functions manipulating with LFNs are written like that, it's hardcoded. Sorry for any inconvenience.

As far as I know, FAT32 supports unicode characters more than 13. The13-unicode is just the number contained in one long entry which is just a part of the long entry set. I patched the MFS to support LFN with unicode as the current MFS just converted the unicode to assci.
