Hey guys, I needed a bit of help. Some ships are appearing as ??? instead of the actual name. This is getting annoying since I use many of these ships and in large numbers in the Skirmish mode and I sometimes loose track.

I have the BC Patch and the EOL mod.

In that folder are the pluginscripts of ships and stations. In these scripts is a parameter called longname. The value of that parameter is the name displayed in QB

You can use BCUT and its Plugin Editor it loads up plugin contents and allows you to edit it via user friendly method.

What you want to change in there is "Ship Name".

If I understood correctly, via BCUT I have to edit the Shipname that should appear as ??? to the actual name?

What id the Shipname is already there? Do I retype it and save?

[Edit]nvm, I got it.[/Edit]
