RMS Toolkit (Random Map Scripting Toolkit)

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors

Updated to version 2.0!! Freshly revised New RMS Guide help file; now includes tons of images!! The definitive reference guide for any serious random map scripter!


RMS Toolkit is an add-on for the free text editor program PSPad Editor. You will want to get this download if you would like to become a random map script expert (or if you already are). If you don't want to dive into the scripting language or you don't feel ready for it yet, you might want to try RMS Creator instead.

With RMS Toolkit, you get:

  • Syntax highlighting, which increases script readability and helps you quickly spot any typos

  • Context sensitive help (using the "New RMS Guide" help file, extensively hyperlinked)

  • Interactive clips which automatically generate script code for you

  • Several random map script templates that you can use to get started

  • Tool to remove extra whitespace from a map script and format the code for you

  • Advanced text editing features:

    • enhanced search & replace capabilities

    • auto-completion (similar to AutoText in MS Word)

    • text diff (compare two map scripts side-by-side with any differences highlighted)

    • and more...

IMPORTANT! RMS Toolkit setup steps:
  1. Download and install PSPad Editor (4.5.1 or above).

  2. Download and install Microsoft Windows Script (5.6 or above).

  3. Download and install RMS Toolkit.

For step-by-step instructions on how to do this, read the install.txt file that is included in the RMS Toolkit zip file. Uninstallation is easy and the steps to uninstall are also explained.

Credit goes to Bultro for his excellent work on the original New RMS Guide. Also, thanks go to DiGiT for info from the comprehensive constant numbers list.

RMS Toolkit is the most comprehensive random map scripting tool currently available. It surpasses all the other RMS editors and generators in that it has almost every feature you need to enhance your scripting experience. Here are just a few of the features that particularly stand out:

>Syntax highlighting makes typos in your script a thing of the past, and generally makes your script structure easier to visualize.
>Automatic code generation saves you lots of typing, and once again makes spelling mistakes a lot less likely.
>If you ever forget what a certain command does, context-sensitive help lets you immediately pull up the relevant entry in the new RMS Guide.


Quality/Instructions: 5

Quality - There are no major bugs, and the whole toolkit is well designed and flexible to support your individual needs.
Instructions - Installation and initial use are a bit complicated. However, Step by step installation instructions are provided. Once installed, there is a readme in the installation directory which I highly recommend reading before starting to use the toolkit. Also, there are template scripts to teach you the basics and more advanced skills of RM scripting.


Conclusion:
Using RMS Toolkit will greatly enhance your RM scripting experience. Going through the installation process and learning how to use the different features is well worth the time spent.
A must have for any RM scripter!
