How to edit Character Age please? DC Version

Post by RangerTeamEcho » September 2nd, 2019, 12:13 pm

Hi, i am using WL2DCRangerEditor-97264-3.jar

This editor does not allow me to change my char's Age in the save file. U can change name, ethnicity, smokes, portait, even re-write ur bio, but i guess its creator must have left Age out. The site where i downloaded the editor had not been updated for a while, and so i am not likely to get a response from whomever made the editor.

Is there a way to manually do this or do you know of an editor that can?

Thanks.

Maybe ask for a feature update in the WL2: Community Content forum. The Ranger Editor is stickied at the top.

Thanks for the advice. By the way, do characters age over time in WL2 ie. is player age a dynamic field or is it just cosmetic like bio.

EDIT. Oh! i'm sorry i did not realize you made the editor i am using? i use it a lot to test stuff, great work it works very well.
is there a difference between 97264-2.jar and 97264-3.jar? i downloaded two different copies from different sites.

Yes, -3 fixed an error where the Speak & Spell item was confused with XML encoding and caused a crash due to the &.
There is a changelog that mentions this on the official download page.

If all else fails, your save files are stored as XML documents in your Documents/my games/Wasteland2DC/Save Games folder. Open one up in a text editor (such as Notepad) and search for the name of the character whose age you want to change. Then find the <age> tag and change the value to whatever you want.

To the best of my knowledge, rangers do not age over time because the game has no time system.
