Your XML stuff MODML is inpractical, perhaps using nested tags as I proposed a while back may be better
Its not that hard to make something read the current mod format, plus I have mine reading the multiline author notes fine, a bit eaiser with regular expressions but it can be done.
What might be better is more of a BBcode like template, with a different shaped header, but still not fully fledged W3 XML
human readability is highly important at this stage, plus I wouldn't want to undo much of nuttzy's hard work with his easymod
I also wonder if John still has an archive of the stuff from the old mods.phpbb.com where the official mod-template was first discussed.
Well at the moment were just really discussing the wording/content of the header, and any possible legal implications which needed discussing.
also mod validators won't chuck your mod out if it contains the generator line created by mod maker
