Risc's Colorizer FINAL (Updated)

Submitted by Risc
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
UPDATE: I have received numerous emails regarding translation of this tool and I have decided to release an update to the final version (which is a little weird).

This version will create a file called 'Strings.txt' when you start NewGen in the NewGen folder. You can edit the text inside this file to match your language version of the world editor.

Original description:
This is a tool for editing colored tooltips and text but with a major difference:
As an addon to Grimoire/NewGen.

This is the final version. If someone wants to improve it, PM me and I'm willing to pass this on to anyone that seems skilled enough.


Installation:
You'll need Grimoire and the .NET Framework 2 to use this.
Just place all files in Grimoire's "bin" folder and add:
Code (Text):

loaddll("bin\\PELoader.dll")
 
to "we.conf.lua" and you're all set.

The colorizer shows whenever you edit a string-value. This only works for english versions of the world-editor since it's searching for those windows. As such, it may take half a second to show before you see it.

    It's really annoying that this does not work with a German WE. Could someone work on this?

    You desperately need to fix this, as currently it's annoying to the point of me and those I know automatically disabling the tool as soon as they download the new NewGen.

    The problem is that the cursor starts inside the colourizor, so those of us who quickly hit enter, type in our changes, and hit enter again are thwarted by the writing not being produced from lack of a "Generate" click. Either leave the cursor in the original box or make it automatically generate (I don't even see the need for an extended box).
