Notepad++ Language file for Game Configs

February 20, 2011 10 comments

Prompted by a thread on the QuakeLive forums asking if there were any programs with syntax highlighting for editing QL configs, and the fact that there isn’t, I just went off and made a custom language file for Notepad++.

I went through the configs from the games I play, and added in some extra things to make those work too. It’s not perfect and I’m no guru, but it’s better than just plain old black text on a white background. The colours need tweaked, but they’re workable at the moment.

So yeah, this should provide rough syntax highlighting for your game config files in Notepad++.

Tested with configs from:

  • QuakeLive
  • Quake 3 CPMa
  • Call of Duty 2
  • Call of Duty 4
  • Counter-Strike 1.6
  • Counter-Strike: Source


Any suggestions in the comments, please!
