A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Input some text.  Specify the percentage of corruption, any characters that you want excluded from being replaced (such as spaces and punctuation), and the characters to insert.  It will output the text, but in a garbled fashion, replacing characters from the Input text with characters from the "Replace with" section.

I used this when making Visual Out, to circumvent having to do this process manually.  Use this writing tool to create garbled text for a glitched email, mysterious file, or other damaged text.

Also includes .capx for Construct 2.

Did not expect to find such a handy little tool for doing this one incredibly specific thing I also didn't want to do manually. Thank you for making this!

Glad it was helpful! =D
