editing .NPCs

how do I edit a .NPC? I want to edit the dismember probabilities, playermodels, and weapons but I can't delete the letter when I double click on the .NPC file. I use WINRAR to open then. Can someone help?

I am not really sure what are you talking about. I ll give it a try.

If you are talking about the npc.cfg files inside the assets1.pk3 you need to copy them out, remove the "read-only" and put it back in (overwrite it). Other way is to make a new .pk3 file, make "ext_data" folder inside that .pk3 and copy entire NPC folder in there (but before you again have to remove "read-only"). Then you can basically edit it without changing the game files. If you ever get tired of it just delete that .pk3 and everything will get back to default.

You may need to extract them out first with winrar before you can edit them. After that just use notepad.

try pakscape instead of winrar: http://jediknight3.filefront.com/file/Pakscape;31681

also, here is a good forum for NPC editing: http://jediknight3.filefront.com/inf...expand#2096522

also, something ive discovered: you cant edit the files directly with pakscape or winrar; it wont save your changes. you first have to cut and paste them somewhere else (outside of the pakscape/winrar window, say... on your desktop) and edit them there. then, when you are finished editing, you can cut and paste them BACK into the pakscape/winrar window.
