1. About

This is a syntax highlighter for freeware Notepad++. Supports highlighting vanilla Fallout 3 functions and some of their abbreviations as well FOSE functions currently existing in beta2. It is similar to the style of C++ highlighting found in Notepad++ itself and Java Textpad.

1.1 History

Version 1.2 - 1/30/2009
Added commands from FOSE v1 and removed the only command change that I noticed - GetIsReference -> IsReference. Beta commands are still supported for those using FOSE Beta (though you REALLY ought not to).

Version 1.1 - 12/31/2008
-Strings with a quotaion (" ") are now displayed in light green, differenciating from the darker green of comment lines (;). It's on the light side though not too light, if you find it really hard to see, please let me know. I'm personally "sensitive" to these bright colors and I have no problem with it.
-Collapsibles are now done properly. You'll be able to collapse Begin and If functions.

2. Usage/Compatability

Notepad++
This is confirmed to work for Notepad++ 3.9, and should work for versions higher than 3.9.

FOSE (Fallout Script Extender)
This syntax currently supports functions from FOSE beta2. Further updates for future FOSE functions could/may be available.

3. Installation

Place user file "userDefineLang.xml" into "Your System Drive":\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Notepad++.

4. How to

When you're editing GECK scripts inside Notepad++, just go and choose GECK Script in syntax.

5. Credits

Thanks to various creators of Oblivion CS syntax highlers for their "userDefineLang.xml" provided me with reference as to which entries to edit and how.
Notepad++'s author for creating his program.
FOSE team for their fantastic god-sent script extender.
Thanks to haama on Fallout 3's official forum for pointing to me how to make quotations (" ") highlightable as well.

6. Permission

In the event that this syntax highlighter is no longer updated or viewed as dead, feel free to add to it or alter it. Credits would be nice if you were directly adding FOSE functions to it.

7. Contact

The preferred way for you to contact me would be on Fallout 3's official forum, my name on there is reinhart_menken. You can, of course, contact me here on the Nexus where this is uploaded, though I may very well reply to you a lot later.
