Custom tool - SongIniEditor

Postby Piak » Sat Aug 06, 2011 12:09 pm

I wrote a .NET tool maybe a year ago and thought this would be a good idea to share it.
This tool basically works like a mp3 tag manager : it allows to edit multiple song.ini files in a simple way, using a grid view (edit only, not create them). I think it can be usefull for fretters who create career packs.
To open files, you just have to drag/drop folders from Windows Explorer to the tool's grid : you can select multiple folders to drop, or just one, and the tool will open all the sub-folders within.
Each time you save a song.ini file, the previous version will be stored in a backup folder ...

Preview

Features :
- change song.ini fields, swap fields, basic text replacing
- auto fill fields by using folder name, rename folders by using ini files fields
- reset scores
- convert a jpg file to a 400px png (drop a file on the "convert album.png" label), shows where album.png is missing
- create a title.ini file using ini files content (I wrote this feature to create titles.ini files for my DLC folders, and I used a custom field named "dlc_info"...)

<add key="AdditionalFields" value="cassettecolor;delay;eighthnote_hopo;force_background;hopofreq;loading_phrase;lyrics;tag;tags;tutorial;unlock_text;version;diff_guitar_real"/>

Then you just have to add the column with the "Add/Remove grid column" button.
Hope this helps ...


Download v1.1

Download v1.0 here

The .NET framework 3.5 is required. I can upload the source code somewhere if someone wants to compile a linux build with Mono.

Edit (wolferacing) Added new version to first post.

If you could, would you be willing to update it so that the program can use some of Phase Shifts song.ini tags, such as "diff_guitar_real"?

In this new version you can configure your own tags. Just edit the config file (FretsOnFire.SongIniEditor.exe.config) with notepad, and add your own tags to the "AdditionalFields" entry:
<add key="AdditionalFields" value="cassettecolor;delay;eighthnote_hopo;force_background;hopofreq;loading_phrase;lyrics;tag;tags;tutorial;unlock_text;version;diff_guitar_real"/>

Then you just have to add the column with the "Add/Remove grid column" button.
