Wiki tools[edit]

  • modified mwdumper.jar (sourcecode patch to MWDumper) - Java program that can split the results of a MediaWiki export (such as for this) into individual file components. Usage from a command prompt is:
    java -jar mwdumper.jar my_dump_file.xml
    provided that the Java Runtime Environment is present in the PATH.
  • - Python 3 script that uses the Mediawiki API to upload text and images en masse. Upload of archives and the like are not implemented just yet.
    Usable filenames are limited to ANSI and the Windows system language - ie: ANSI + hangul if you're running a Korean version of Windows. Linux is cool and doesn't give a shit.
    Usage: Open config.ini, configure settings, and then drag and drop your files by the hundreds. Please request bot status from an admin before using. Username is case sensitive!
  • tlwiki_toolbar-bk201.xpi - Wikipedia Toolbar for Firefox modified and reskinned to fix some url mismatches and add custom shiznit. Forked from wikipedia_toolbar-0.5.9-fx.xpi, released under the WTFPL.
  • t_uploader.php - A PHP script that also dump directories. Kind of.
  • sgrab - Windows-only commandline program to dump TLWiki pages as .txt. See page for documentation.

  1. Development tools for the RealLive engine up to < are RLdev 1.40. Included programs are unpacker and de/compiler for both SEEN scenarios and .g00 graphic file format. The text layout part is handled by a RealLive plugin, also developed by Haeleth, called rlBabel. Its success depends loosely on the version of the RL engine of the game. See also [1]. On a side note, rlBabel is also only effective on RealLive versions <, VisualArt's having changed their external DLL loading system in and above. IE Little Busters.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Uses the Script Table templates.
  3. Ethornell is the code name for the 1.x series of the Buriko game engine, Buriko General Interpreter. It is used in Lump of Sugar's 「Nursery Rhyme -ナーサリィ☆ライム-」「いつか、届く、あの空に。」, CLOVER's 「さよらなエトランジュ」「プラチナウインド~星の詩が聞こえたら~」「ている・ている」, ZIP OHP's 「Purism×Egoist」, AUGUST's「夜明け前より瑠璃色な」and 枕's 「H2O ~FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND~」 and others too.
    Update: Previously linked script dumper confirmed *NOT* to work on Nursery Rhyme (was for Itsusora). Completely different scenario format.
  4. 4.0 4.1 experimental UTF-8 support
  5. Supports the Script Table templates without modification, provided internal tool encoding is set to UTF-8. Use the &action=raw to download a page, e.g. {{fullurl:Symphonic Rain:Scripts/kgo0001-Func_a01.utf|action=raw}}.
  6. Some BGs and CGs are compressed with an unsupported method inside the EVbg.pak and EVcg.pak archives. The localizable bitmaps are located in the SR.pak archive, which is supported.
  7. Borland-style localization, requires registry tweak
  8. Experimental proportional font support, necessary to hack layout
  9. Requires Japanese locale (and Ja. regional options if unpatched), to be tested
