October 2014: A script to collect filenames is now available for recent BrainVoyager QX versions (tested with BrainVoyager QX 2.8.0).

September 2013, BrainVoyager QX 2.8: In case problems are encountered with linking protocol files, one could try to remove file paths for the protocol files (*.prt). Further details follow and/or plugin will be adapted to this BrainVoyager QX 2.8 feature.

Spring 2012: please note that this tool is now more or less obsolete, since there is a scripting function SaveVTC() since BrainVoyager QX 2.4.1. See the script LinkPRTSaveVTC.js in /Documents/BVQXExtensions/Scripts/.

Protocol to VTC linker plugin for BrainVoyager QX. Links protocol files to vtc files in the same directory. The plugin expects a text file (*.txt) with the following structure:

prt 1 name
vtc 1 name
prt N name
vtc N name
This text file can be generated with a script (please see above). The example text file is shown below. protocollinker_example_file
