I am a Christian who studies the Bible and loves science. My favorite verses are John 3:16 and Philippians 4:13. I am also a big Generals and Zero Hour fan who modifies those games for fun.

I downloaded Notepad++ and I am using it for the game code. I have been looking for a great text editor that will let me do more than I could with Notepad or Wordpad. There is one thing I like to do: reorganize the units and buildings into my preferred build order for each faction. I do this when I want to create faction reports and tech diagrams so it makes the most logical sense.

To do that, you have to set Visual Basic as the language to make the pluses and minuses appear next to the code words.

To move the blocks of data, you should collapse them using the minus buttons so you get only two lines: the object's name and the word END. You can cut these two lines and move them to another location, and the collapsed code will expand back to a regular size when you paste it. This saves a lot of time and you do not need to scroll down to the last END in the text block.

I hope my tutorial helps anyone who wants a little shortcut in modding a game. This program might work for the older C&C games also. Download Notepad++ and try it on them.
