File Name: WeiDU Highlighter for Notepad++
File Submitter: Argent77
File Submitted: 22 Feb 2013
File Category: IE Modding Tools

The package includes highlighters for:
  • WeiDU_TP2.xml: WeiDU script files (*.tp2,*.tph,*.tpa,*.tpp)
  • WeiDU_BAF.xml: Script text files (*.baf)
  • WeiDU_D.xml: WeiDU dialog files (*.d)
  • WeiDU_TRA.xml: WeiDU translation files (*.tra)
The syntax highlighter files work in Notepad++ v6.3 and later. You can find the editor here.

Installing the highlighter definitions is very easy. Just open Notepad++, select Language->Define your language..., use the Import button to install the respective XML files and restart Notepad++. You should see the new entries at the bottom of the Language menu. For more detailed instructions see the readme.

The color schemes and keyword lists can be easily customized using Notepad++'s edit capabilities.

Versions for older Notepad++ releases can still be found somewhere in this thread.

As more and more keywords will been added to the highlighter files, Notepad++ may become slower to apply the color schemes. This is especially apparent when you switch tabs or change view modes within Notepad++.
That's why I'm offering the package WeiDU Syntax Highlighters 'Light' for Notepad++ as an alternative. It reduces the number of keywords to a bare minimum.

Have fun! :)

Thanks for this.


With the amount of errors I get, even while creating the most simplistic tp2 files, this really is a godsend to me. :)

Wanted to report a small annoyance with the recent Notepad++ versions (I'm on v6.5) :P


Lines like

AUTO_TRA ~Grimuars/Translation/%s~


Cause the entire code beneath them to go blue because of the single %



I have minimal UDL understanding but worked around it by preventing the %% delimiter from nesting with the ~~ delimiter. (but now variables inside ~~'s are not hightlighted :()

"I am the smiley addict, yellow and round, this is my grin :D when I'm usually around :P.
When there's trouble brewing, see me post, cuz it's usually a wall o' yellow and your eyes are toast!!!"

Yes, this is a limitation of Notepad++'s highlighting syntax. This issue has been mentioned in the included readme (and also a way around it), but if it's too annoying, I can disable it by default. That will remove all variable-related highlighting however.

I must say this is a fantastic tool. I can't believe all the time I wasted without this. Thank you.

I have moved the WeiDU Highlighter project to GitHub. If you can't wait for the next official release, you can always download the most up-to-date package from the development branch on GitHub by clicking on "Download ZIP" on the right side of the page.

Already installed it and tested it with the new keyword from Weidu 243 (SUPPORT).
