Notepad++ Language file for Game Configs
(This was originally posted here on EmSixTeen’s blog)
Prompted by a thread on the QuakeLive forums asking if there were any programs with syntax highlighting for editing QL configs, and the fact that there isn’t, I just went off and made a custom language file for Notepad++.
I went through the configs from the games I play, and added in some extra things to make those work too. It’s not perfect and I’m no guru, but it’s better than just plain old black text on a white background. The colours need tweaked, but they’re workable at the moment.
So yeah, this should provide rough syntax highlighting for your game config files in Notepad++. Screenshots:
Tested with configs from:
- Quake 3 CPMa
- Call of Duty 2
- Call of Duty 4
- Counter-Strike 1.6
- Counter-Strike: Source

supercool! I use np++ anyway as default editor, having it colorize the configs somewhat only makes it better.

Very useful, thanks. I always use N++ to edit my config.

Should still work fine. 🙂
Works with TF2 config files aswell.
Works with ET aswell
Top notch, just in time 😉
you cane update notepad++ at ninite.com and other cool things to and if you have a linix based operating system you go to ninite.comlinix
the website this is hosted on has expired. any mirrors?
Since the link was broken and I didn’t have the file, I made it myself. I think it should be pretty much like that by emSixTeen. Send me an email if you got any questions 😛
Oh, and all credit goes to EmSixTeen.
Damn, email thing didn’t work. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks for Reeload69 providing new link
If anyone is still looking for this, and Reeload69’s link is dead, you can find the zip over at EmSixTeen’s site: http://emsixteen.com/gaming/quake/
last link is dead again. Google won’t help.
I’ll check to see if I can put it on our host if I can find the file on my PC.
