For those who have volunteered, here is what you need to do.

The UI allows you to create custom text files for existing packs that we are going to import.

The table has 4 columns:
- pack info
- original pack text file
- fixed text file (by my script)
- an empty text area where you can copy the fixed text file to, and further fix it manually

The fixes that you need to make are as follows:

- Some packs merge Notes: and Package history:. Please separate these into distinct sections.
- The section names must be exactly Notes: and Package history:
- The Package history: section must look like this: version date author description. Example:
Code:
1.05 2021-12-10 vampirefrog: fixed text file

- The date and author may be missing, if the author is missing, the semicolon can also be omitted.
- If you can, try to word wrap it so the text is not wider than the header (47 characters), you can leave URLs whole.

Ultimately the file must correspond to https://vgmrips.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=759#p759
Template: http://vgmrips.net/programs/tools/descr ... vgm151.txt

Please click on Save to save the file, it is also saved when you click one of the tool buttons at the top.

Another example:
Code:
Notes:
Another Mammoth rip, and for one of the finest
RPGs ever made by man - a genuine classic of
the 16 Bit Era. It lives on here.

I've taken the liberty of cleaning up the names
a bit - No "Red Alart" for you purists, sorry.
:) If you really want the old names that bad,
switch to Japanese View. That won't work for
spelling errors though (Red Alart, The
Promissing Future, etc...)

Pao-Pao is actually from Fantasy Zone.

This one's for DJSW, Brotha.

1.01 Update fixes a small tag issue that was
present in one song.

1.10 Removed "Ippo" from Izuho Takeuchi and
replaced M. "Gaki-Chan" Nakagaki with Masaki
Nakagaki. -dissident93

2.00 Relogged The End of the Millennium, it
looped too early. -Valley Bell

The Inquisitorial vengeance
had been hurried by my two-fold escape,
And there was to be no more dallying
with The King of Terrors...

This could probably be automated/scripted + Manual QA'd. Interested to volunteer unless if it's already done.
