This is something I've been working on for my own personal use, so don't expect too much from it. It's really just to help with testing games/apps that save to / load from arrays.

Eventually, I hope to turn it into more of a universal level editor.

Tabs along the top specify Z position in array.
X and Y positions are determined by horizontal and vertical position in the grid. Clicking on the ends of the headers lets you scroll (currently 64x64x16 max).

Does it open actual Array Files or things like Excel sheets?

Because i tryed opening an Array File and nothing even happened.

Ok, I think I've figured it out. The problem is that it only supported text arrays (I had assumed it'd still be able to cope with values). Personally, I only use text arrays and use "val()" if need be.

I've bodged a fix so now before you load/modify an array you must first select the type. Unfortunately there's no function to show whether the array is numerical or text, so it can't be done automatically. Saving probably won't work if you edit data before setting the correct array type.

Later versions will be able to load .csv files created in Excel, but currently only MMF arrays are supported (and that's standard arrays, rather than dynamic arrays etc)

Thank GOD. This is going to be infinitely useful for me once it comes out in full. A visual array editor is something that should have been in MMF from the get go.
