Help changing an item display name

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I"m hgaving a really tough time doing somthing that seems like it should be simple. I just want to change the name of the pistol to .40 Caliber Pistol or something like that.

 

I've tried editing the config .xml, that crashes the game. Web info indicates I have to change the English.txt file to make the name change. I've tried opening the resources.assets file with notepad++, but it displays as gibberish- can't read it.

 

I tried UAE_0_2 and I've tried AssetBundleExtractor but I can't make these tools work or don't understand them. I can get as far as sseing a list of assets, but English.txt does not seem to be amnong them. Plus, most of what info I am finding is years old.

 

Can anyone tell me in plain language how to simply change the name of an item to a different name?

 

Or, a better way to achieve my goal? All I really want is to see ".40 Caliber Pistol" instead of "Pistol" when I touch the icon. Would it just be easier to make acustom item that is named ".40 Caliber Pistol" and uses the pistol icon?

 

Thanks in advance if anyone can help a noob modder just change a dang name!

Hello, look perhaps inside the localization.txt and the item like you did.

 

OK, I did find that- Would I just "find and replace" every instance of "pistol" with my desired name?

 

Thanks for helping me out!
