The game will freeze for a brief period and your name will revert back to what it was before typing "Thereshallbewings"

You can check to see if it is working by going to the command consol of the ship and scroll down and you should see script editor. Which isn't there if you don't do this.

2. if someone could give me a step by step walkthrough I would appreciate it.

3. Any other help with mods would help as well?

Capitol Letter T?

How do you get Capital letters, cause I can't get them to work for me?

when you type in the game be very patient... dunno why but the game recognizes typed letters only if you type very slowly.
hold down the Maiusc, then press the t, slowly and with grace, and the game will recognize it.

p.s. don't triple post... use the Edit button... :D

Capital letters not an issue anymore, now if I could only get the rest of it to kick in.

look in the command panel of your ship, you will notice a new entry that is called "Personal", into it there are the cheats.

After you typed in Thershallbewings, what exactly happened ? Did your pilot name remain the same or change to that ?

The usual problem here is not getting the double l in, even though its typed.

The other thing after getting the editor started, is to save and load the game so the cheat script can initialise.

seanhall I've merged your posts into the tutorial which you should have found linked right at the top of the tutorial stickie, this should point you in the right direction.

Also for future reference triple posting usually brings instant death to an author which is why we have an "edit" option when posting ;)

Script Editor

Post by Dizaster101 » Sun, 6. Sep 09, 16:14

Hey,

I cant seem to get the script editor to work. I have changed my name to Thereshallbewings (Capital T, 2 l's) but all it does is change my name.

It doesnt activate anything (as far as I can tell) and the script editor doesnt run.

Any ideas??

Go into your command console, half way down.

Or, Ctrl-C, S.

I'm pretty sure the default is shift+c to get to your own control console. Ctrl is, by default, bore fire. That might be a bit dangerous to go around pressing willy-nilly.

As for the actual problem of enabling the script editor, it looks like you've got it right tbh. However, if it actually changes your name to Thereshallbewings then you did it wrong somehow. Your pilot name should still be the same as before--the fact that it doesn't change is an indicator that it was entered properly.

If its changing your name, then you didnt spell it right.

When it works correctly, there is a pause in the game, and your original name is restored.
