Changing program names easy way

Post by hwasser » Mon Nov 11, 2013 1:18 pm

Hi guys, did you know that there is a really fast and easy way to rename the programs by editing the "dictionary"?

It is REALLY EASY, you open up the dictionary-folder, inside there is a file called Rom.xml, open it up.
(but make a backup of the rom.xml file before editing, just for safety!)

Inside you'll find a list with programs, for example:
<MWQ> Modern White Eq </MWQ>

Can be changed to:
<MWQ> RND 5033 Eq </MWQ>

Inside Nebula, my program-list now look like this:

You can coupled this method with copy+paste the .dll & .xml files that are in your plugins folder, edit the .xml <SKINNAME> OverwriteMe.N2S </SKINN> and put the most appropriate skin for each preset.

You are changing category descriptions/dictionary here.

You can also change program description itself using NebulaMan (demo will do). Description is shown in the Nebula plugin right under loaded program name.

In NebulaMan, right click on program and select "Quick description update".

Backup your repository before doing any changes!!!

Yeah, but this is really fast however. I even added a couple of names to units that didnt exist in this rom-file.

The skin is in this thread:

Really good one too
