Like the title says, I have a few TNS documents that I'd like to modify via LUA but they aren't readable in the TNS format.

Hi @Kyle Kelly and welcome to Omnimaga!

Some years ago (Sep' 12) I played a bit with TNS and LUA documents and wrote a windows utility that let's you look inside a TNS LUA-document.
Please click on the link in my signature "XML2TXT, XML2LUA, TXT2XML, LUA2XML and 2TNS", have a look at the post(s) and see if it can be of any help. (Unfortunately, the screenies are gone  :( ).

Hi @SpiroH , thanks for your response, I took a look at your post but I am a bit confused. Could you explain how to use the  TNS2XML program for what I'm trying to do?

Well, I'm not sure I completely understood what you're trying to achieve.
I think you are trying to read the LUA document which is inside the TNS document. Is that correct?

Yes, I want to edit the LUA document. TNS documents are made from LUA right? I want to get the LUA form of the TNS document so I can make changes to the program.
