ArmA String Converter [BETA]


Six days after Dingo-J's published his tool "Arma 3 Alpha to Beta Mission Converter", I saw it on armaholic and discovered, that it can only change one file at the same time. After a few hours of programming, I had my own advanced program for a larger purpose. Because "ArmA String Converter" can be used for every ArmA/OFP text file (txt, hpp, htm, html, sqs, sqf, fsm, bifsm, sqm, cpp, xml, bikb) and it can automatically change every text file, if you select a folder instead of a file.

- Easy to use.
- Super fast. (up to 480000 changes per second)
- Open Source!
- Support for Beerkan's & Dingo-J's "ChangeText" file.

Installation / Usage:
Run the exe file.

Choose a file or folder
Select Beerkan’s "ChangeText" file or write directly the old and new string into the boxes
Choose the case-sensitive parameter, if you want
Push the “Convert” button to start the process

With Case-sensitive:
- One file: ~480000 Changes per second.
- Multiple files: ~434000 Changes per second.

Without Case-Sensitive:
- One file: ~323000 Changes per second.
- Multiple files: ~252000 Changes per second.

Supported languages:
- English
- German
