I just downloaded the dhonal script and pasted in the scripts folder (I backed them up first though) and as soon as I enter the town I get the message in red below saying the script is broken or absent.
I am using winxp..
I tried opening the link you provided and copy/paste the stuff in the file but still doesn't solve the problem
I tried going to the silent shaper in the library but still the message keeps appearing.
:(
what can I do?

It looks like this kind of problem does not have a solution...

When I first enter the testing grounds I get the following message:

"invalid symbol in line 4159"

so?

I'm sorry but you probably messed up the files with something else, i didn't touch the testing grounds

Please try putting back the old files and then download the script (be sure to download it all)

Anyway tomorrow i should release a stand-alone savegame editor that doesn't mess in-game scripts.

Thanks for replying.
If doing a back up of the old scripts folder and downloading the files above and copying them into the scripts folder means to mess it, I definitely messed it up.
I don't think the file is not complete because I even marked the option "close when finished" in the dialogue box, the little window closed when it was fully downloaded. I even tried copy/paste ing from the link you gave someone else a few posts ago, but still didn't work.
I will anyway try restoring the old files I backed up.
Thanks.

The files? Note that my editor consists only of "z42dhonaldlg.txt" :)

Could you please click on this link , let it open, be sure the last lines read:
begintalknode 199;
state = 60;
nextstate = 56;
condition = 1;
question = "Max skills. (Warning: will unbalance the game!)";
text1 = "You feel skillful";
code =
i =4;
while(i<=22){
alter_stat(i, 20);
i = i+1;
}
break;
and then save the page in your geneforge3 script directory

Allow me to suggest that instead of putting up the script as a text file to be downloaded by browser, you bzip it or some such and include checksums. This is because that browser downloads tend to add carriage returns or linefeeds in all the wrong places, and may munge high-ascii characters and generally play havoc with scripts.

I realize that you have done the community a huge favor by writing the script, and you don't really owe us a release-quality piece of code. But it might make everyone happier if you packed it up more soundly.

You're right, i should have done this from the beggining :)

..... :eek: 2 year necromancy.

Its maker left the forums so it's unlikely that anybody would still know after all this time, but the essentials of what it does can be done with a little script editing.

Given that these editors are text files, they'll work for both Mac and Windows. Indeterminatus's link at the beginning of this thread still works.

Kel's right. I think it's a fair guess to say most of us skim the posts on previous pages before replying. We'll notice. It's not a big deal, just click "EDIT". It's right next to the "" button.
