Hi. I wanted to learn to mod another game I like (IL2 sturmovik) but understand the sourcecode is in javascript. I thought I'd ask some of the experts around here for some advice on a good freeware javascript editor to download. Something that's no fuss, not cluttered up or anything but has all the necessary features.

I'm a novice you see, having only done a little scripting on the aurora toolkit (nwn2). I'm pretty confident I can pick it up quickly, so long as I have the right/good tools to work with and coming in cold I don't really know which those might be.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Javascript for a game? Are you sure you don't mean Java? They're very different.


For Javascript...
I'd recommend Komodo Edit.

Also, since Javascript is browser based, you'll want to pick up the Firebug extension for Firefox and probably IE Developer Toolbar for IE (debugging javascript in IE is no fun).
