    Hi,, I was wandering if there's a program to change the things that appear in that screen that gives info about the game that says for example: "you see: Sulik" "you search the locker"
    I hope I can make myself clear... and can somone tell me a simple easy to use dialog changer or modifier?

    My Regards

    Extract directory text/english/game from master.dat. Open *.msg files in notepad or something like that and everythng will be clear :wink:

    in regards to this. is it possible to change the descriptions for a single map or would you have to copy the scenery and change that if you wanted to keep the old ones the same.

    Yes, it can be done via scripting. Study the file "Fallout_Editor.doc" and the source scripts which come with the official FO2 mapper. Otherwise you can copy the scenery and rename your clones (not recommended).

    OK, follow these steps:
    • - get official FO2 mapper
      - get FSE (Fallout script editor) made by Jargo (for scripting purposes)
      - study the Fallout2 Modding FAQ
      - study the "Fallout_Editor.doc" file coming with official mapper
      - browse tutorials about FO2 modding (find it yourself on the net)
      - start modding
      - ask a question
