    Pokemon Text Editor


    Hey everyone, welcome to Pokemon Text Editor.
    It's a tool that's meant to replace the tool 'AdvanceText' which is outdated and doesn't run on-the-spot on modern hardware. I tried to make this tool platform-portable through the Qt technology, unfortunately I don't have a compiled version for Mac users yet, but once I got to run this OS in a virtual machine, I'll deploy it too.

    Improvements

    • Repoint data without bugs
    • Doesn't repoint if there is enough trailing free space
    • INI structure with infinite depth
    • Context menu for adding/deleting/altering INI items
    • Finds beginning of text, if requested
    • Search text and insert INI items with ease
    Planned
    • Toolbox to choose special items like '[player]'
    • Drawing line to indicate textbox ending
    • Highlighting all special items
    Images

    Spoiler:


    Download

    Coming soon!

    Note Linux: If you don't own the Qt development package, execute the bash script instead of the executable!

    Notes

    This tool is in Alpha phase and might contain annoying bugs. Make sure to report them in this thread, I will try to fix them asap. To begin with, I've only shipped an INI for the Pokémon FireRed version. Don't hesitate to share your INI with the entire community! And: Visible linebreaks are ignored due to the fact that it is better to have more control over them in the game through '\l', '\p' and '\n'. The tool would not be able to detect whether you want to scroll one line down or open a new textbox otherwise. In short:
    Code:
    This is
    a text
    does not evaluate to
    Code:
    This is\na text
    in the actual game.

      Shame that only the Linux version is out.

      Sounds like a neat tool. Will it be able to edit Trainer's dialogue as well?

        I actually really hate Mac and Windows. Nevertheless, I'll deploy this app for these too.

        Sure, this tool can edit everything that is related to text. Just make sure to correctly type the text.


        I'm bumping this thread to inform that there have been made a few bugfixes and that the Windows version is finally released!

        I'm not a massive fan of a text editor as a tool but if it helps people out it can only be good, always nice to see people contributing to the community regardless.

          Would be nice to have a line denoting the edge of the textbox like Advance Text did, or at least a character count for each line to make editing text easier.

          What's wrong with a text editor? using a hex editor for this kind of stuff is time consuming and unwieldy, especially since we have no good hex editor that can load .tbl files. It also handles the repointing automatically, which is another thing that simplifies the process.

          Depends what purpose you use it for, promoting the use of it instead of making new scripts is stupid. Hex workshop has always loaded .tbl files perfectly for me (it's also most definitely not time consuming).

            I'm running a 64-bit version of windows (I know the only version uploaded is a 32-bit version, but some time 64 are able to handle both) and I got the following Message:

            ___________________________________

            This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt plattform plugin "windows" in "".

            Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

            _______________

            Anyway, I know I'm pretty new around here and haven't been modding since Advanced Text was the one to go tool for script hacking. I've seen many users mentioning a Qt, and since my error message does too, I'd really like to know what it is since I'm obviously missing it on my PC.

              I disagree. When it comes to editing texts that are independent from scripts (such as intro text) a good text-editor with automatic repointing ability is useful.

              That would be pretty neat. Source code is on Github, but wait for the next version of this editor please!

              The feature you mentioned is already listed under "TODO". Thanks for mentioning it nevertheless.

              That is exactly the reason why I hate Windows - it has no LDD command. Dependency walker hasn't shown me qwindows.dll as a dependency, but I figured it out with your error message. Wait for the next release which will probably come this week, thanks for trying it out! PS: 64-bit will always run 32-bit programs because 64-bit computers also have 32-bit registers (in machine code).

                  Did you download the latest version of this editor?
                  If yes, what exact error message does it show you?

                          As mentioned somewhere above, x64 Windows can also run x86 programs. So just execute http://www.mediafire.com/download/svg29as0panarfl/PokemonTextEditor-release1.0win.zip and you should be fine.

                              Okay, but now the error should be fixed:

                                        Sorry, the thread may be a bit misleading, but there is already a download-link for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit. Altered the thread now, that should do it.

                                            I'll see if I can compile some binaries for all OS's when I get a chance.
