Editing UFOapedia and research text
« on: October 15, 2012, 02:42:55 am »
Dear friends

I am really interested in editing UFOapedia and research text to modify the tech tree and add some of my crazy ideas. Can anyone tell me what program should I use?

which version of the game are you using? in 2.5-dev the whole ufopedia texts are in the base/ufos/msgids files. in 2.4 the texts are in the po files. imo you should really update to 2.5-dev if you plan to mod the game.

You should use Notepad++ for a lightweight text editor (this is for 2.5-dev). You can use a more complete code management solution, but it's not really necessary if you're just editing the .ufo files.
