I don't have an .odf editor, so those files came up as that Windows icon.

That is, until I downloaded Open Office. Open Office is like a free version of Microsoft Office, I use it for school work.

Apparently, its Writer (Word) program can open .odf files, calling them Open Document Formulas. It actually works!

Does anyone else know about this?

EDIT: sorry about the duplicate thread, my computer froze for a sec.

You could just use notepad. I use my own programme (TheUltimat's Text Editor, part 1 of TheUltimat's Tool Kit) that I made for text editing though. :p

...I wish I knew that earlier. Thanks anyways. So that means the ODF acronym thing is just a coincidence?

It's a complete coincidence. ODF (Open Document Format) is a file format comparable to .doc files, but with an XML structure. It's not related to Object Definition Files in any way besides having the same file extension. :)

Any text editor will open the ODF files you're after. Notepad, Wordpad, MS Word, OpenOffice, vi... ;)

It even says in the mod tools docs that its object definition files so, no actually he just kinda added some confusion(and plus the swbf2 odf files are setup very similarly to Armada2 odfs and use almost the exact same code).
