Yesterday I needed to export a list from BGG1tool to be used here on BGG, and so I added an option to do this, with a flexible format. The program at start looks for files in the format mod*.txt, and list them under the button "Export list": if you click it and select a file, each game in the list is saved with this format.

The download link is (version 1.10c):
http://www.nand.it/nandeck/bgg1tool.zip

For example, the format file "expBGG links.txt" (included in the zip) is composed of one line:
[thing=((0))][/thing ]

Note: The parenthesis here are curly (I can't write them directly in a post). This syntax is replaced in the output with the first field of the list (one line for each game).

For example, if I download the first 100 ranked games, I can export them in this format:

Agricola
