Similar to others, I find it odd that xml is becoming the standard file format for storage of non-complex data and believe a human readable format like ini to be more useful for this task. However, like any plain-text storage method, at some point around three pages of text, it gets cumbersome to edit the file by hand and that is where specialized text editing applications come in to the picture. There are several applications on the internet that allow editing of ini files in a more efficient manner, but the good ones cost money and the freeware/shareware ones are not sufficient for any but the simplest tasks. The INI Buddy application was created to solve the lack of a decent, full featured ini editor available free-of-charge. The interface is kept simple and the underlying ini reader was designed around a standard published by Vinland Solutions Organization, the Game INI Format v1.000. The Features and Drawbacks lists in the second post and the screen shots in the third post are both taken from the Readme file linked below. Additional screen shots and more detailed information can be found in that document.
