Notepad++ Auto-complete for FF Lua

So, I quickly put together a (very) incomplete FF Lua auto-complete file for Notepad++. So far, it only has the standard Lua functions (string, table, etc functions) and the FF constants (Player.kScout, Ammo.kCells, etc).

To install, put lua.xml in Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\APIs\

By default, auto-complete is shown by pressing Ctrl+Space and function parameters are shown by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Space.

To enable automatic auto-complete while typing, in Notepad++, go to Settings -> Preferences -> Backup/Auto-Completion and check Enable auto-completion on each input (Function completion) and also Function parameters hint on input.

Not sure when I'll get the chance to update this, but it's at least semi-useful in its current state. If anyone wants to help update it, that'd be awesome. The syntax is available here: and the FF Lua documentation can be found on the wiki here or here (for functions, specifically).

Current Version (v1.0 for FF 2.42):
//	Fortress Forever Lua Autocomplete for Notepad++ 
//	Version: 1.0
//	Updated: 2011-05-07
//	Compatible With: Fortress Forever 2.42
Put lua.xml in Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\APIs\


v1.0 (2011-05-07 for FF 2.42):
 - Initial Version
Past Versions:
  • None
#FF.Pickup Fortress-Forever pickups

My Non-official Maps
Released FF_DM_Squeek - FF_2Mesa3_Classic - FF_Siege_Classic
Beta FF_Myth - FF_Redlight_Greenlight

Sick of the people on the internet, always moanin'. They just moan.
