I don't know what it means and how does > it impact cracking. It means that the .chr file contains info on 44 different characters, but the .conf file section has CharCount specifying a number greater than 44. This does not impact cracking in any other/unexpected way - it only tells us that only 44 different characters are being used as per the .chr file. If the CharCount line is removed, the warning will go away. (Getting this warning printed is one of the two purposes of the CharCount setting.) Alexander
