Features: - checks most filetypes for possible crashers, bugs or cosmetical errors. - provides fixes of various errors made by other editors. (MOS, creature, dialog, area, BAM, KEY, BIF ) - extracts most of the filetypes (able to extract all files of a certain type, or all files in a bif or files matching a pattern). - looks for files matching a specification of field values (for example you can look for all evil creatures). - able to manipulate or create most of the filetypes with various degree of usefulness. - able to compress or decompress bifs. Progress status: 1. Consistency checkers They work for BG2, some of them works for IWD2 and other engines. They are safe for running, but they may give false reports. 2. Editors Item editor - Works for all engines (PST/BG1/BG2/IWD1/IWD2) Spell editor - Works for all engines (PST/BG1/BG2/IWD1/IWD2) Store editor - Works for all engines (PST/BG1/BG2/IWD1/IWD2) Creature editor - Works for all engines, but doesn't fully support IWD2 Area editor - Works for all engines, fully supports wed/tis editing (door addition/removal, vertex manipulations, overlays), it can convert BG1 areas to BG2 (green water) PRO/VVC/EFF editors - Work for BG2 (the other engines might not support these formats) Dialog editor - Works for all engines Game editor - Works for all engines, it doesn't support full savegame editing. It can be used to add NPC's to a new game. BAM editor - Works for all engines. It can compress/decompress BAMs, manipulate palette, add animation cycles Worldmap editor - Works for all engines, can edit multi map worldmaps MOS editor - Works for all engines, it can compress/decompress MOS files, fix transparency TIS editor - Works for all engines 2DA editor - Works for all engines IDS editor - Works for all engines MUS editor - Works for all engines TLK editor - Works for all engines KEY editor - Works for all engines Handle the editors with care, make backups before modify items, bams, etc. If you find a reproducible bug or you have any idea how could I improve this tool, please notify me via the DLTCEP Support Board. ( 3. Resource finders They work and safe for running. Occasional crashes were reported. 4. Resource extractor It works for all engines, but CD extraction may be tricky. Extraction from compressed bifs now works flawlessly, no need to decompress the whole bif. 5. Bif/sav decompressor/compressor It works for all engines. 6. TBG import/export Supports the TBG3, TBG4, TBGN and IAP fileformats Known bugs: The dialog tree recoils when changing any leaf (annoying) The stop button doesn't work during searching/checking Known problems: Problem: The script checker reports [ANYONE] as an invalid IDS value. Reason: The symbol isn't in the EA.ids (or other) file. It is working only because the game replaces invalid symbols by 0. Solution: Add the line 0 ANYONE to your EA.ids (or other). Problem: The script checker reports [ANYONE] as an invalid object.ids value. Reason: The symbol isn't in the object.ids file. It is working only because the game replaces invalid symbols by 0. Solution: Add the line 0 ANYONE to your OBJECT.ids. Problem: The consistency checkers report a lot of problems. Reason: It reports different severity problems. Some cause crashes, some cause visual problems, some are unnoticed in the game and some are deliberate tweaks. Solution: Look at your 'Check' menu in the setup and turn off some checks. If you don't care about original game errors, turn the 'skip original files' option on. Problem: The script editor doesn't refresh line numbers when dragging the scrollbar. Reason: When the edit box has no focus Windows doesn't send the same message (and i'm too lazy/inexperienced to find the solution). Solution: Make sure the text edit box has the input focus by clicking into it. Problem: The area editor shows garbled graphics when using graphical placement tools (the placed animation itself seems right, but the area graphics is scrambled). Reason: This has been fixed (i think). Solution: Make sure you use your display in 32 bit color depth. Problem: Effect numbers are displayed twice in the effect names. Reason: The effect descriptions contain the numbers, but DLTCEP adds them too. Solution: Turn on the 'don't number effects' edit option. Problem: DLTCEP is complaining about missing shout.ids, moraleai.ids, color.ids or similar. Reason: The action/trigger ids files contain references to nonexistent files. Solution: Fix your action.ids, trigger.ids files or add an empty file in place of the missing one. Problem: The modified file doesn't contain the modification. This happens only when modifying an original game file. It also happens when the modification was made by another tool while DLTCEP is running. Reason: DLTCEP loads chitin.key and override information once at startup (or at reload chitin or setup change) to speed up file access. Solution: Load the new file by the 'load external' button. Or reload chitin.key from the main menu.

Modifications to this program may not be misrepresented as the original, otherwise you are free to port it to other systems (i would like to know about it). DLTCEP is constantly growing, generally I release a new version each week (or month) therefore if you altered the program it is better you supply the patch on the sourceforge site.
