To help you create a filetype plugin - I have created a template to use in visual studio. It is attached (remember not to unzip it).

Use at your own risk.

You'll get comments when someone uses it. Effect plugins don't get written every day, y'know, and FileType plugins are even rarer. Rarer... that's hard to say.

QFT. I haven't downloaded a filetype plugin since OptiPNG. And it's mostly because there hasn't been one since OptiPNG. :-)

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I'm working on one at the moment. In the end probably most of my plugins will be filetypes.

Thanks for this. I'm looking to make a plugin so that Paint can work with and reproduce Lithtech .dtx files

I know this template is really old, just wondering if the file plugins have changed in the mean time. I tried building this plugin and it doesn't load, and neither does an older icon plugin I had. Paint.Net doesn't report any plugin load errors.

Check if target framework is set to .Net Framework 3.5.in the project properties.

Code needs update for VS2012, but is a great start.
