Editing new name in nametable

Postby FemShep » 17 Oct 2015, 18:37

I have just added about 32 new names to the name table via ME3Creator. I mistyped one of them. Is there a way to edit this? I don't like adding errors into my stuff. REally don't want to have to redo everything as this is a very tedious process.

You should be able to edit it directly in the HEX. IIRC, adding new names puts the name list at the very end of the file, so changing the length of words (i.e. removing/adding letters) is not an issue. You just might need a TOC.bin update after the edit if you change the length of the file.

Can I shorten one though? I made xbox_R_start instead of xbox_start.

Yep, should be fine. Oh, forgot to say though, at the beginning of every name in the HEX, there is the length count (as a negative number in signed long format). If you shorten a name (or add to it), you'll need to adjust the count as well.
