Formats

Here you can set up source file names, labels format, letter case for string literals, etc.

File Name Format

Formats for files produced by the disassembler or the compiler.

The top field contains the full path and name of a text file created during disassembling. Two fields below contain the path and the name of binary files SCM and IMG (if the edit mode is GTA SA) created during compilation. All fields share the same syntax. They also may use special words representing parts of the source file name:

$dir – the file path $name – the file name $ext – the file extension

E.g. if you disassemble the file C:\MyDir\main.scm, then

$dir is C:\MyDir $name is main $ext is .scm

If the format is $dir\$name.txt, the output file is named C:\MyDir\main.txt.

Label Name Format

Formats for label names used during disassembling.

Global Offset

A label name is numeric e.g. @12345. The number is the offset of the label from the beginning of the source file.

Script+Local Offset

A label name includes a name of the script where the label is located (as defined with the name_thread command) and the offset from the beginning of the script, e.g. @MAIN_12.

Script+Global Offset

A label name includes a name of the script where the label is located (as defined with the name_thread command) and the offset from the beginning of the source file, e.g. @MAIN_12345.

If you want the offsets to be hexadecimal, select the checkbox at the bottom.

Custom Names

These options instruct the disassembler to use custom names defined by the user in the external files.

The file CustomLabels.ini contains the list of label names and their offsets. If the disassembler finds a match between the label offset in the source file and the offset defined in the INI file it gives this label a name associated with this offset.

The file CustomVariables.ini contains the list of global variables addresses and their custom names. The disassembler uses this file to name global variables.

The file CustomArrays.ini contains names of the arrays in the following syntax: the first number is the global variable address which is the first element of the array, then the array size, then a custom name. It helps the disassembler to recognize array elements.

Case Converting

This option serves a dual purpose. The disassembler names global variables, labels, arrays using the selected letter case. The compiler writes string literals using the selected case too.
