EditPlus is a shareware ($30) text editor with a 30-day evaluation period.

Using some free EditPlus customization files for Zillions that we have defined, scripts will be highlighted according to the ZRF syntax, a clipboard will be available for easy insertion of keywords into the script, some keywords requiring string arguments will "auto-complete," and you'll be able to hit Ctrl-F11 to get a pick list of macro definitions. ZSG files will also be highlighted.


To install the customization files into your copy of EditPlus, do the following:

  • Download ZillionsEditPlus.zip
  • Unzip the files into the EditPlus directory. (This automatically installs the Zillions "cliptext".)
  • Open up EditPlus's Preferences dialog box using the Tools:Preferences menu.
  • For Categories, select Settings & syntax under Files.
  • Click the Add button. A New Setting should appear in the File types list.
  • In the Description field, type: ZRF
  • In the File extensions field, type: zrf
  • For the Syntax file field (in the Settings & syntax tab), click the "..." button to the right. Find and select zrf.stx. Click Open.
  • For the Auto-completion field (in the Settings & syntax tab), click the "..." button to the right. Find and select zrf.acp. Click Open.
  • For the Function pattern field (in the Settings & syntax tab), type: ^\(define
  • Click OK.

In the Syntax colors tab of the Preferences dialog you can also customize the coloring to suit yourself. Highlight categories include reserved keywords, parentheses, preprocessor commands, operators & control, true/false, line commands, and quotations.

It is possible to launch Zillions of Games directly from the Tools menu in EditPlus. To set that up, do the following:

  • Open up EditPlus's Preferences dialog box using the Tools:Preferences menu.
  • For Categories, select User tools under Tools.
  • Click Add Tool>> and select Program from the popup menu
  • In the Menu text field, type: Zillions of Games
  • For the Command field, click the "..." button to the right. Find and select Zillions.exe. Click Open.
  • Click OK.
