The following is old and outdated, but is a direct copy of my original post here.
Prompted by a thread on the QuakeLive forums asking if there were any programs with syntax highlighting for editing QL configs, and the fact that there isn’t, I just went off and made a custom language file for Notepad++.
I went through the configs from the games I play, and added in some extra things to make those work too. It’s not perfect and I’m no guru, but it’s better than just plain old black text on a white background. The colours need tweaked, but they’re workable at the moment.
So yeah, this should provide rough syntax highlighting for your game config files in Notepad++.
Tested with configs from:
- Quake 3 CPMa
- Call of Duty 2
- Call of Duty 4
- Counter-Strike 1.6
- Counter-Strike: Source
Any suggestions in the comments, please!
