Platform Conversion Utility (PCU)
Release Candidate 2
Author: Ascension64

The purpose of this utility is to allow batch conversion of resource names, as file and within file types, from one naming convention to another. This utility, previously known as the Tutu2BGT converter utility, first allowed the conversion of BG1Tutu naming conventions to BGT naming conventions.

Ascension64,

I can personally say nothing but "Amazing!!". Once again you did it. You impressed me and I believe many others with this milestone. My jaws are still sweeping the floor 10 minutes after I have read your post.

And I, who thought that you would be idle and quiet untill the end of November.

And what do you do instead ? You drop a H-bomb on top of the BG Community with this announcement.

Your PCU is the best news any BG Modder and Player could ever hope to read. Not to mention the Merger Project... :Bow:

God bless you... :wub:

After reading the tech details (and understanding some of them - hehe) the first thing that came to mind is that the PCU's potential is really enormous! Despite some present limitations (which Ascension64 states might be overcome in case of sufficient request or necessity), the PCU is extremely versatile thanks to the custom dictionary templates!

Again congratulations! :cheers:

PCU is now released.
It probably isn't of much use anymore nowadays, but here it is anyway for the record.

Updated archive. The BGT->Tutu and Tutu->BGT (full) dictionaries had a UNICODE quotation character that stopped them from parsing correctly.
