Some websites like this are either down or just simply dont work now. Especially early guides like this.

You could always head on over to Xai Corporation they may have something. Just type it in google and you'll find it.

Or checkout the X3 stuff as some things may just be the same.

The reasons, why there is no download link, didn't change in the last years. The author of the guide wasn't online for about 6 years and unfortunately there is nothing like eternal availability in the internet.
You could PM cattafett, which said a post over yours, that he still have the tutorial (though his post is also over a year old). Another possibilty would be to download a different tutorial. The MSCI Programmer's Handbook provided by Egosoft gives also some basic instructions into scripting and can be downloaded from the Download section -> X2 -> Bonus Material.

Which game are you playing now? X2: The Threat or X3: Reunion, as your other posts in the Technical Support forum suggest?

In X2: The Threat you have to type in 'Thereshallbewings' while being in space. Changing your playername was first introduced with X3R.

In any case, there are two reasons why activating the Script Editor may not work:
1. You made a mistake, when typing in Thereshallbewings. You mentioned the capital T already, but make sure that you also have the double 'l' (i.e. two lowercase 'L's). You need to make a little pause between the key press of the same letter. Otherwise the game will not recognize it.
2. The Script Editor was already activated.

See also the FAQ articles about activating the Script Editor for reference:

Quoting myself here, since this is still relevant. Only that the inactivity of the author meanwhile increased to 12 years.
