ERM extension - UDL plugin for Notepad++

Here is plugin for Notepad++. Actually it is UDL profile for erm file. It is not 100% perfect but it is enough for fast viewing of scripts.

Now to install in Notepad++:
1. Language > Define your language... > Import
2. SaveAs some name
3. From Language menu select name you used in step 2.

It is not hard to change color as you wish.

Great work indeed! What's about valid line endings #10 and document end mark #13?
Val, Notepad++ is customizable enhanced editor, supporting plugins, folding, custom hot keys, etc.

 Notepad++ honestly just feels nicer, it could be me just feeling used to it, but when I think about it, ERM editor doesn't have many of quality of life options notepad++ has. As an example, "Find" window alone is a huge accelerator, allowing to use regular expressions and counting number of matches.

Shocking fact: Salamandre is not a professional developer and did all his works with some amateurish, primitive tools

Thanks.

Just to clarify.
UDL is plugin for Notepad++ and source can be found on internet. It come pre-installed with Notepad++. With UDL you can make custom coloring scheme based on keywords, delimiters, groups ...

As such, it is not 100% what true erm editor need. It is not possible to make coloring for !!xx/xx:xx/xx/xx; format. But it can emulate something really close to that. All i did is to make coloring for erm to make it easier to read. It took me ~1h.

Like AlfWithCake stated, There are advantages of Notepad++ use. You can make compare files, count string instance, search strings, coloring tokens (my favorite ) ... It is especially handy if notepad is default text view/editor on system.

All begun with needed to find some overlapping between master of summoning (MOS) erm and Phoenix erm. So i share because it may be handy for others...
Problem is:
During selection of unit in MOS dialog it is not possible to change castle types if Phoenix mod is presented. Without Phoenix MOS work all right.

Don't let hope overwhelm you . I'm not sure is that possible. Assume this as handy , dirty quick assembly tool. So no big updates in future.

Anyway, This is fast and dirty handy tool.

I usually resave script in ERM editor after editing in Sublime Text. Resaving fixes line endings and inserts #13.

There is option in Notepad++ too, for those who use it
Edit > Blank Operations > Trim Trailing Space
Than save file.
