Notepad++ Event Syntax Highlighting

Started by Xifanie, November 20, 2016, 07:53:28 pm

How to add it:

  • Download the attached file

  • In Notepad++, Select Language/Define your language...

  • Then click the Import button near the top left and choose FFT_Events_UDL.xml



How to use it:

  • Select Language then FFT Events at the very bottom



How to make it auto-load with defined file types:

  • In Language/Define your language... there is an Ext. box. You can just type the extension there. I already added evt, so ideally you should name your event files *.evt

  • You could always set it to .txt, but I don't recommend it unless you plan to use notepad++ exclusively for FFT events



Warning: If you only ever use event.txt and want to use event.evt instead, you'll have to edit your event compiler's CONFIG.INI accordingly.

This is awesome and will definitely be a world of change for me when it comes to quickly jumping between parts of an event :D

no, EVTCHR is for EVTCHR...

This is for events (which are in TEST.EVT)
