It's coz mIRC 6.14 now auto-detectes the OS you are using, and unfortunately, as you are using a MULTUBYTE OS, mIRC <<PRESUMEs>> that you are using JAPNAESE OS <<BY DEFAULT>>.
To correct this, simply go to
and switch off the translation SJIS/JIS
this will correct the BUG, and also allows you to see chinese nick / channel name as well.
BTW, this only occures when you install your mIRC 6.14 to a new folder. If you over-install the mIRC 6.14 in a folder with older INI files, mIRC 6.14 will correctly display the chinese characters (big5 as well GB, and maybe as well for other double bytes characters, like korean?)
