Posted this in "Technical / Map Design" subforum by mistake. Instant regret. Nobody goes to this site and even less go to that subforum, so I am shamelessly reposting this somewhere where it's views will at least hit double-digits. Dennis feel free to merge or delete, but if you do, please be kind to me and merge them in the General Discussion sub.
This is an update to my old renamer tool called Michigan J. Frogomizer/RagtimeGal
If you had either of the previous copies, delete them immediately and install this. Download Link

I know you're asking "Why do I need such a silly app?"Everybody
needs this silly app. It takes any mapfile, and reorganizes the tag names so that they can be extracted without being a complete mess. Instead of ripping an assault rifle and getting something like this;
to something like this
Wow, doesn't that look better?
And I know you're next thought, "Yeah but it doesn't work for OpenSauce tags"
Yes, it does;
That's my mombasa map. You can see how organize mode groups all tags together in specific folders based on their tag class. Then it puts them inside the directory I chose. If I had chosen HEK+ tags, any external tags would not have been renamed so that HEK+ could extract them properly (but instead I would use Refinery, which should work flawlessly.)
And what if the map was protected? Well I took my eternal lightning source code and wove it into the app, so you can rename tags based on their TagID.
So your last desperate bit of hate is that you have to organize your tags to the folders I decided? Ha! Hahaha!
Just select About>Organize Chart, and a new menu appears which will let you load the chart, modify the directory that the various tag classes will be extracted to, and then resave. Now you can even share the .frog files with your friends, so they have your premade settings. And if you want to add more tag classes, like for OpenSauce extensions, you can just open the .frog files in notepad and modify them from there. Wow!
And all is this is like what, 10 bucks?
No are you crazy! It's free! Download it, why haven't you already? You read all of this? Go back up there and click that link!
Huge thanks to MosesOfEgypt for helping me locate some tag and map offsets and for clarifying where HEK+'s faults were.Edited by DeadHamster on Jan 30, 2018 at 03:35 AM
