I made a (I think) new Galaxy Mod tool

Post by John314 »

So, I'm not sure if someone has made one of these before, and I'm not sure how useful the tool is, but I made it anyway!

Basically, I got tired of editing the keen text files (such as the help and story files) in notepad, and decided to make a GUI for it.

It's not an 100% finished project, but I think it will do for now.

Please read the ReadMe.txt file for help.

v1.0 : https://github.com/john314thegeekygeniu ... s/tag/v1.0

Suggestions are welcome.

Downloaded it and played around a bit, haven't tried to use it for anything yet though. Very neat GUI :D

as it requires the python3-sdl2 libraries to work you might want to make a note about this dependency on your github readme

neat GUI by the way

I attempted to try it out, but I got an error saying that my version of Windows is incompatible with the program. I'm using a 32-bit system, by the way. That's too bad, because it sounds very useful! I remember finding myself a little annoyed that you can't tell how the text files will look in in-game until you turn on the game itself. I think at one point I actually had the text go beyond the bottom of the screen because there was a little too much. This tool sounds like a very worthy addition to the KeenWiki! Those icons look really Keenish!
