 *? GDA Creator Professional Edition (English version)

GDA Creator Professional Edition (GDAC2) is a tool to edit GDA file. You can also edit DTX file, and other BMS-like format file if you add plug-in file (lane script file).

The original Japanese version is at the J.T.'s web site.

Here is an English version, hacked by me (yyagi; Q&A staff). The base version is 0.24 (the latest one), and translated not only menus, but also dialogs and help files.

I've taken permission from J.T. (original GDAC2 author) to distribute English version here.

You should also download DTX Viewer (DTXV) or GDA Viewer (GDAV) to use preview feature. DTXV is prefer to use, and DTXV is in DTXC archive.?
