How long did you wait? A brief freeze is normal.

When you entered the name and pressed enter you activated the script editor, just close the menu, save and then reload the game and you're good to go.

I suggest you check the cheats sticky, you will find the answer there; also check the Plugin Manager sticky as that tool is required to install a lot of scripts (including the cheats script you need to increase your wealth :wink: )

Yeah, nope lol. the character name change isnt working for me, it just opens the player menu, do i need to be docked? or any other stipulation? ive tried with both the script enabler, as well as just trying to change my name. ive also disabled the enter key as the player menu button, but it still opens it, lol. any thoughts, ideas?

"Thereshallbewings" Problems

Post by Atlas Rune » Fri, 19. Jun 09, 16:57

I'm having trouble enabling the script editor.

When i try and put in Thereshallbewings as my name, and press enter, it opens the personal menu, and doesn't do anything with the name editor window...

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? And how to fix it?

Most likely, you're typing the "ll" part too fast.

The type-rate in X3 is, crap.

Try it slowly. I'd bet you're entering "thereshalbewings" with one "l". :)

If there's a pause and your pilot name does not change then it worked - you should be able to open the SE with shift+c, s.

If your pilot name does change, you typed it incorrectly.

See the FAQ.

When i press enter in the name change window, it ignores the window, and opens my personal menu....

I've checked the spelling, and its right...

Sounds vaguely familar. Have you rebound the enter key to something else?

Nothing that wasn't default. I tried unbinding it from opening the menu...

What option is responsible for accepting changes?

Right now, the only thing Enter is binded to is "Select Option"

Hehe that is a problem that happens to me also several times but with other windows.
I bet you used the 'Enter'-Button on the Numpad. This one is bound with the sidebar on the left side.
Don't ask me why, i guess to improve the speed to interact with the sidebar, or so that you need no mouse to interact with it. 8)
Try to use the 'Return'- Button on your keyboard when you want to accept your changes.

Thereshallbewings?????? How?????

Post by palenaka » Tue, 23. Jun 09, 15:15

Every sticky/script says I need to change my pilot name to this... I got referred to a sticky that says to open my pilot name menu

but nobody says where it is... where is it? I've checked (i thought) all the menu's in game and I can't find this command anywhere
