GooTool is a utility to extend your World of Goo experience, enabling you to install new levels and mods to provide further gameplay, and to view and share your World of Goo accomplishments.
Options are manipulated in your config.txt directory. Addins are merged by decrypting World of Goo files and merging them with addins in the addin file format.
GooTool is written in pure Java. You can get the source code from the GooTool download page.
You will need:
The GUI forms were created using IntelliJ IDEA. You will need IDEA in order to modify them easily; a trial version can be downloaded from JetBrains. However you do not need IDEA simply to compile GooTool, as I have included javac2.jar in lib/build/: this is the IDEA Java compiler, which injects code for the GUI forms.
All other required libraries for building are in lib/build. Run-time libraries are in dist_src/common/lib.
Create a file ant.properties in the top-level directory setting the following variables to appropriate values. Only jdk.home is required for simple builds, the rest are for building distributions or tagging releases.
Example for Windows:
jdk.home=c:/Program Files/java/jdk1.5.0_17 launch4j.dir=C:/Program Files/Launch4j nsis.dir=C:/Program Files/NSIS
Example for Linux:
jdk.home=/usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-sun launch4j.dir=/home/david/src/launch4j nsis.dir=/home/david/src/nsis/nsis-2.42 svn.base=file:///svn/gootool
For building, I use the 1.5 JDK to maintain Mac compatibility.
Run ant with one of the following targets:
There are other targets but they're generally just called by the above.
There are a lot of TODOs in the code. The whole thing is rather messy due to it being a long evolution of a bunch of prototype code, rather than a result of actual design. In particular, Controller is horrendously monolithic, and a major refactor is needed soon to support retargeting the build to something other than the local machine (e.g. iPhone).
Please feel free to submit patches by e-mail, preferably against the latest version.
