Modding Dwarf Fortress is fun, but sometimes you want custom text for things like intro text, announcements, diplomat dialogue, or even your own help files.
Sean Weinmann made a tool to convert Dwarf Fortress's weird text files (or WTFs) a long time ago, but it's never been very user friendly.
So I fixed that.

Literally all I did was make a set of batch scripts to run wtftools.
It was nothing special. Sean did all the actual work. The original file is here.
But now you can make custom text in Dwarf Fortress without mucking around in the command line.
Only works on Windows.

Step 1: Run 1_run_this_first.
Step 2: Open the files in 2_edit_this using a text editor and edit them however you like.
Step 3: Run 2_run_this_after_editing.
Step 4: Copy the files in 3_edited_text and paste them into your mod's data folder.
Step 5: Play Dwarf Fortress with custom text.

Note: If you aren't making custom help files, you may want to delete the help folder to speed up the conversion process.
