Title: VVVVVV Script Reader by Dav999 (External VVVVVV Tool)
Post by: Dav999 on November 20, 2012, 07:45:40 pm
I made something new: a handy program which reads the script of a .vvvvvv level and outputs the script to a text file, in which commands on different lines aren't separated by '|', but it actually puts each command on a new line. You can now easily read scripts of levels without having to open VVVVVV, or reading it the hard way! :viridian:

Currently, the program is Windows-only, but I'm also working on the Mac version.

To use it, just run the program once (you don't need to install anything). It will give some instructions and it will create a folder to copy levels to (C:\VVVVVV Script Reader). You can copy .vvvvvv levels to that folder, and when you run the program again, it will read all the level files in that folder, and output the scripts to a text file (each level gets a text file to which the script of that level will be written).

The program itself (the .vbs file) doesn't have to be somewhere specific, just in a spot where you can find it...

If you find a bug, please post about it in this topic, and if necessary, upload (or PM the contents of) log.txt.

ATTENTION: Don't move the level, always leave the original level in your VVVVVV levels folder in My Documents! The conversion shouldn't change anything in the .vvvvvv file, but just in case anything goes wrong, I am NOT responsible for any lost data! Use this program at your own risk. If you have a backup of the level, or if you leave the original level in My Documents\VVVVVV, nothing can go wrong.

VERSION 1.0 [20-11-12]
First version

Download below! :viridian:

NOTE: Please ignore the '__MACOSX' folder in the zip. The program is a .vbs file, but you can run it the same way as a .exe. (just double click it)

This is a really good program, it makes a really good grilled cheese sandwich and also folds the laundry! Also it reads .vvvvvv files, but I don't see the use of that.
