JJ2+ level list editor
This is a tool which makes editing the JJ2+ level list easy. Simply choose the Jazz2 installation directory, select the game mode you want to edit and add files using drag and drop or the “>” and “>>” buttons. Removing files from the list is possible with the “Delete” key.
You can also add and remove game modes.
Your reviews gave me some good ideas, so here is the highly improved new version of PlusLLEdit.
~ The window size is now changeable
~ The level names are shown in the lists
~ You can sort the file list by file names or level names
~ You can search for file names or level names
~ It’s possible to select multiple files by holding down the shift key or ctrl while clicking on them and add them all at once by clicking on the “>” button
~ It’s even possible to add all files in the list by clicking on the “>>” button
~ The Jazz2 installation directory is saved in a file called “pluslledit.ini” so you only have to select it once.
Simple but okay. i think you guys overrate it a bit, even overlords useful music patches didn’t get 10 streaks. i can’t select multiple files and i need to select the folder every time again.
Tropicco: make it? no i am not a programmer but i am pretty sure this is easy to make.
Minmay: i meant exactly what you meant. completely agree.
hmm, good job. Faw if it is simply, MAKE IT! :d it is so useful!
Ha, this prog is great! ;)
That Is My Screen Hot
WOW nice cool
Written before version 2.0:
This program has been over-rated, plain and simple. This does tend to happen a lot with JJ2 utilities, since the majority of the community ranks “programming” one notch above “skydiving with an anvil instead of a parachute and your hands tied behind your back.” I consider PlusLLEdit to be the most egregious example of this so far.
I will admit, it does exactly what it claims to do. The problem is, it doesn’t claim to do much – makes a ten-second job a five-second one – and it doesn’t do anything on top of what it claims.
The sad thing is that the addition of just a few more features would have made this program actually useful. Being able to select groups of levels would be great; I could put all 30 Survivor levels in my Treasure list with much less effort than would be needed otherwise. But I can’t.
If I could sort levels by level name instead of filename, perhaps even search for terms within the names, it’d make sifting through them a lot easier in some cases. But I can’t.
Even just being able to add levels with a keypress instead of dragging and dropping would have made things much better.
It doesn’t help that Plus itself already has most of this program’s functionality. You can drag-and-drop J2L files on Plus.exe, and BAM, they end up in the level list. This is actually superior to PlusLLEdit in a few ways; most notably, I can add the aforementioned 30 Survivor levels all at once.
The 10 ratings are just ridiculous. Is this Captain Cook, which massively improved the barely-functional Home Cooked Levels? No. Is this TilesetPal, which made one of the most painful aspects of tilset making easy? No. Is this Carrotade? Okay, that one is kind of an unfair example.
The new features definitely improve it. I still doubt I’ll actually use the program, it’s usually just as easy to edit the level list directly, but I can see how people would want it.
The 2.0 version gives me this error:
Press OK to ignore and risk data corruption.
Press Cancel to kill this program.
Then it doesn’t detect my JJ2 folder, or something (says that Directory does not exist, which is not the case).
EDIT: I saved PlusLLEdit in my JJ2 folder. It opened correctly when I copied it to desktop, but as soon as I tried to change the installation directory, the same error popped out. It did create a configuration file in my JJ2 folder, though.
EDIT 2: That fixed it! Thanks a ton.
If I may have a feature request, can you add the multiple file selection (with Shift and Ctrl) to the level list? Right now I can add multiple files but not delete multiple files. :P
You must have write access for the Jazz2 directory and for the directory where you saved pluslledit.exe. Otherwise PlusLLEdit is not able to create its configuration file.
Does it work when you move pluslledit.exe on your desktop and start it then?
EDIT: I found a problem with the function which reads the level names out of the files. I fixed this and reuploaded PlusLLEdit. (But I am not completely sure if this was the reason for the error message)
Could you please try it with the new version?
EDIT 2 (feature request): Done. :)
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
