Thanks for your fast response eladan

I managed to to it in a station now :)
I hope I can manage do it in space to :)

One other quesion:
Im gona start a new game with some scripts and mods. When do I need to enable the script editor and where shall I do it?

Is it just to start a new game, waiting for the first movie with Ban Danna to finish, and in space enable the script and go to a station to save. Then load the game and everything should work?

Hi Guys, I hate to ask what may seem like a stupid question but, I am stumped... I am unable to get access to the Script Editor so I need some help??? I have search the topic, and I have tried "Thereshallrewings" (and verified numerous times) as a pilot name, but the name always changes and no script editor? I have tried the trouble shooting tips below and still no joy?

I seen in another form that I should enter the cheat code when in space so I tried that too, still no go? I have also tried switching to controls mapping to Classic, from default - just in case that was a problem... still no joy.

I am rumming X3 Reunion patched to 2.5, with the Bonus Package 3.1.07 installed?

The instructions below are what I have been following and I get no where :( :evil:

enter the menu to change your pilot's name
type Thereshallbewings (note the capital T) and press enter
the menu will close, your player name will NOT have been changed, and a confirmation beep will sound on correct activation
you will now find the "Script Editor" menu item in the command console

-----
Troubleshooting if you can't open the SE
1. Have you changed your pilotname, not your ship name
2. Make sure you are not docked
3. have you used a capital T
-----


Any suggestions would be most welcome.

The usual problem is that people miss the second l, because the game does not accept the same letter without a big pause first.

So check your spelling.

When you get it right, the game pauses, and the pilot name returns to what it was.

Then its ship commands, s.

Btw, theres a spelling error in what you quoted. :)

"Thereshallrewings" or "Thereshallbewings"?

Thanks so much you were right on the money, it was the pause... and the typo was just in the post I did check my spelling (and typoering...lol) when I was entering the code in game.

The pause gets everyone, because no-one stops to check if what they typed actually made it in, before hitting enter.

I guess its only those of us who are lousy typists who check what we typed before we enter it. :)

Activating scripts

Post by oldmartian » Fri, 18. Dec 09, 15:34

I have changed the name of the pilot to Thereshallbewings, not JulianThereshallbewings, and I am not able to active the scripts, Cycrows script installer says that I have scripts installed but I am not able to find them , what am I doing wrong

If you do rename correctly, your pilot-name will not change.

In the end it matters that the name be JulianThereshallbewings, second then only some of LV's scripts showed up, so I reinstalled the game in another partition and it worked fine but al the saved games were corruot, the new game wouldn't use them, but I finished the game in 2 days, that was staying up about 18 hours a day, thank goodness my wife understands

Hello. I've been playing X3 for years off and on. Just got back into the game so I thought I would try something new. I downloaded the xtm mod and got it running(love it), but I started looking around and saw ship mods. Downloaded a couple of them and the cycrow plugin installer. The installer says that they r in the game with checks for enabled and profile, but I couldn't find them in the game. I tried the thereshallbewings code but it still won't let me access the script menu. The script editor menu is in the controls menu and says "s" to access but nothing. I tried in space and in dock. I made sure that the code was correct, when i entered it the game paused and my named wasn't changed. I saved it and reloaded but still nothing. I am running ver 2.5 of x3 and 0.7.4 xtm. Any help u can give is appericated.

How do I get user input to use in my scripts? Such as allowing the user to pick a destination to interact with.

OR

Allow the user to input a value that will be used to make purchases. etc

ALSO

If anyone could handle a brief overview of type casting I would appreciate. I would like to use the name of the station in my messages as well as reporting values. I see there is a string to number function but I dont see a number to string function.

Sorry I'm crap at this but how would you go about writing a script to add engine noise to the first person view?
