During this week, a couple of INI file editing tools were updated and one of them was even released. I'm talking about the INI Transformer, recently released by linq2js and the AIClean and AICheck being recently updated by G-E.


INI Transformer

INI Transformer is a tool that simplifies several processes of code reutilization on rules.ini like files. You can declare variables with @, build INI section templates, auto merge properties from the same section on different files, auto-append new items into lists, import the content of one INI file into another with @require, among other features. The full explanation for all these features and the ones I failed to mention should be seen at this topic. You can download the version from April 16th here at PPM or the very latest version at linq2js's Google Drive account.

Note that this is not the first tool made with this purpose. Nonetheless, the auto-append and offuscate features are not implemented in the other tool. However, this one doesn't have the maths and the multi-line comments.


AI Check and AI Clean

G-E has recently updated his tools that helps people to have a flawless AI code. AI Check 5.0 has checks for things like transports, and defensive teams, etc. AI Clean 5.2 has received the following features, as written by G-E:

- Now has the unit tag sorting in an external .cfg for easy arranging.
- Now supports tag sorting on buildings as well.
- Replaces missing Name= tags with a missing string including the heading.
- Automatic configuration defaults if .cfg or options are missing/invalid.
- Improved output neatness.
- More Yurified.
- Added more stuff to the aiclean.cfg and reshuffled a few things for what I think is better grouping, and updated the header in the .tcl to have better descriptions of how each feature works.


These tools from G-E are mostly focused on Red Alert 2, but INI Transformer works well for other games that also use INI files, such as Tiberian Sun and even Generals/Zero Hour.

Cool, you know I imagine AICHECK will work fairly well with TS too, given it uses the same ini setup for the most part, there would be a lot of additional errors/warnings, but could still yield some interesting results.
