  5. TextureConverter

    This is Klei's internal tool for converting textures into our in-game format.
    NOTE:
    This tool comes with a big Buyer Beware! This is a development tool and not end user friendly. As you've discovered there is virtually no error checking because we use it in a very narrow set of circumstances and those are well debugged.
    Also please note the game engine only supports ARGB/DXT1/3/5.
    Hey all,
    I see that many of you are looking to create .tex files for the game to load. I've discussed it with the team, and we're releasing our own Texture Converter for you to use.
    Have fun!

  7. Speech Mod Template -- v1.3 -- WINTER UPDATE

    WrathOf
    Provides an "english_master.lua" version of my "english.lua" template file based on the "strings.lua" organization with a lot more string settings listed for all characters.
    This can be used as a starting point for creating speech mods without changing the game's "strings.lua" file and enables you to define more character specific speech than what is provided in the "strings.lua" file.
    Notes:
    ** This is now designed to use the new mod loading system without you needing to change your existing speech file based on my previous template.
    ** Refer to the "Speech Changes for DS Winter Update.txt" file for the new items you can copy/paste to your existing file in order to upgrade it for the Winter Update
    See discussion thread below for more information.

    Features:
    * Complete list of all available speech settings for all characters.
    ( and you thought you had enough already! )
    * A few "corrections" to some speech settings for consistency across all characters
    * Comments in the file on how to add more pigman talk, tombstone epitaphs and pigman names
    * Now includes speech from A Winter's Tale Update
    Game Version:
    Revision 73662 2013-02-26_10-21-53
    Use:
    Read top portion of the provided README, modmain.lua and english_master.lua files for current information.
    In the file, remove the "--" comment characters in front of any speech setting you want to activate.
    When you are done you might make a copy of the file for distribution and remove all of the commented out lines in it. That way other players can see what you have changed more easily.
    Please revise the top comment block in the file to reflect your mod's information but do leave a credit to me and the version of my template you used for support purposes. Thanks!

  8. [Tool] Thomas's Mod Manager V.1.0 [Rel]

    Thomas


    Don't Starve Mod Manager

    (Originally Known as Don't Starve Mod Installer, But I Did a complete Rewrite)
    Ladies and Gentle Starvers, I Present to You..

    Cool logo and all, but what Does this do you say? Well...
    Install Mod From .zip
    Install Mod From Normal Folder
    Uninstall Mod -- Currently Unavaliable
    Check Mods are Compatible -- Currently Unavaliable
    Run Don't Starve from Program
    Open Don't Starve Forums in Default browser
    (Only Compatible With Steam and Windows due to How Finding File Works and I have no idea if Visual Basic programs work on Linux or Mac.)
    Is that all you say? Well for now yes. But Not forever. Some when I will be adding new features based on suggestions and feedback, so if you have any then I want it!!!


    How To Use

    The Layout of the program is pretty Simple (as shown in the spoiler)
