GMRename (Suggested by Samuel Venable)
 
Global Rename tool for GameMaker: Studio projects.
 
This tool can replace obj names, script names, sound names, sprites and variables throughout a project.
 
Example 1: Rename obj_a to obj_b
The tool will replace all occurrences of obj_a with obj_b. This includes the object name, object codes, scripts.
 
Example 2: Rename var_variable to var_roytheshort
Replaces all occurrences of the variable name with the new name.
 
 
 
NOTE! I did not have time to extensively test this. Please BACK UP your project folder, and use at your own risk. If something goes wrong, either revert to your backup or reverse the find+replace.
 
If you find a bug, please let me know either on this topic or PM me.  :thumbsup:

Donations let me keep developing tools like this, for free.  :sweat:


Didn't know about this until long after I was banned, but hey! At least someone did it...

From Slammin Sam's original topic:
http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=621186

Really useful for combining multiple projects that may have variable or resource name conflicts.

Hehe I intended to add this to LGM but did not finish it, like the import feature of GM8.1. It is something that needs completed but not in this next release.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.
