dude i know that "readme" is called "readme" for a reason but the only thing the "readme" file says is $file to $location

langs.xml > Notepad++\langs.xml
andromeda.xml > Notepad++\plugins\APIs\andromeda.xml
galaxy.xml > Notepad++\plugins\APIs\galaxy.xml
userDefineLang.xml > Notepad++\userDefineLang.xml

and i can't get anything out of that xD

OK let me explain:
Copy the content from the downloaded resource and paste it in the Notepad++ install folder. Was it so hard to understand really. I understood it at the moment I saw it and I'm fifteen....

i have no idea how to use this tool but i don't care lol
i give you a 3/5 for fun ;p

I give you a red card for making fun of Anachron!
... You're OUT!

Don't post if this is beyond your interests, and surely don't post if its something you don't need you.
It will only anger people because you make "fun" of their work.

Whats up with everyone saying "ohh theres no description" etc.
If i am not entierly wrong this clearly says that it is for notepad++ and it gives you the EXACT PATHS on where to put the files?
This should be just as easy as finding your freaking warcraft 3 folder and putting a map in the downloaded folder. My god..
5/5 This is really useful. I plan to learn galaxy soon enough. And i do have Notepad++
Now when i'm in high school i will learn to code, modeling, making flash, etc. And coding will be a good base for me if i start using galaxy.
It is quite neat.

Hey Anachron,
You might want to make your README and OP more specific. They should say something like:

langs.xml > Program Files\Notepad++\langs.xml
andromeda.xml > Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\APIs\andromeda.xml
galaxy.xml > Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\APIs\galaxy.xml
userDefineLang.xml > App Data\Notepad++\userDefineLang.xml

To get this to work, you actually need to put the userDefineLang.xml in Notepad++'s AppData folder. For me, this was at "C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++". Of course, this folder will be in a slightly different location for each person.

Also, the coloring scheme starts out weird. Everything had either a white background or beige background color. I had to change this to a clear background color in the user-defined dialog, by right-clicking each box.

Thanks Anachron, so useful for me. I couldn't get the other Notepad++ highlighters & autocompleters to work but this one works, and some people gotta be retarded? It is not hard to understand what to do at all. I think they expect notepad++ to be in the zip folder as well.

Could you please elaborate this, please?
I've got the same issue and do want to get this to work properly (well, it works, just doesn't look good), so it could be a great help ^^
