Hello...i played in a clan for a while and made a bunch of skins for it, then it died before anyone got to use em...so i was thinking it would be fun to make a TC mod using them as a last tribute to the fun we all had together. But i have a few questions. I know how to replace sp models with mp ones, but i dont know how to make jan, or whoever will be riding with the main character have a lightsaber and force powers, or any other character for that matter. (Id want to convert lando to a force using character too.) Additionally id want to change the names of the characters, so when you die it doesnt say "Mission Failed: Kyle Katarn has died" it would read a different name, (again, id change landos and jans to new names.) Well, thats enough questions for now, i have more but ill save em till all this work is done. Thanks, Murasame [edit] oh yeah, id want to change any appropriate names in the objective list thing too.

I don't know about the force powers, but I believe you can change the name of a person in the npcs.cfg file in Assets0.pk3 ;) It should be in a folder called ext_data. (Copy and paste the npcs.cfg file if you are using Pakscape). Open it with notepad, and scroll down until you see Kyle's name. Now, find where it says "fullname"(no quotes). It should read "Katarn, Kyle". Change the name to whatever you want (last name goes first) and save it. Make it a new ext_data folder, and add the folder to your mod .pk3 file.

There is a file to change what is said when they die ect and as for the other guys using force powers it would have to be an ibi file and your own map in order to make them jedis.
