New Geneforge 5 Character Editor

Recommended Posts

TheKian   
Posted (edited)

Greetings all. I have decided to make my debut on the forums with an improved Geneforge 5 character editor to fulfill all your "A God am I" desires. The only present GF5 editor which I have encountered is not complete, unfortunately, so I designed a new one with (mostly) identical stat editing as the GF4 editor.

 

This editor contains some scripts from the Geneforge 4 and Geneforge 5 editors.

 


 

As with all edits to script files, this can inexplicably break things, so make a script backup before using this.

This editor is, of course, not officially supported. I claim no responsibility for save damage, although it shouldn't happen anyway.

 

This (completed) editor contains the following features:

-Full stat editing (attributes, skills, spells, and creations - including ornks)

(increases individual stats by 5, and has a +30 all stats option)

-Money (30,000, resets to 0 if you use it twice)

-Remove the control tool (leads to hilarious situations when Rawal demonstrates it on you)

-Get all the repository keys (not fully tested with the quests, but it shouldn't cause any problems)

-Experience editing (1,000, 10,000, 30,000 XP)

 


 

The editor is accessed by the power pylon which activates the pacification pylon in the pacification fields. It is otherwise fairly self-explanatory.

 

To install this, find the "Geneforge 5 Files\Scripts" subfolder in the primary Geneforge 5 folder and copy-paste the following script into "z0pacificdlg.txt".

 

Since I am incompetent apparently unable to attach the file, its contents will be included in a following spoiler.

Enjoy. Feel free to leave a comment on how well it works, or if there are any bugs.

Hello! May I suggest you delete the first part that's already in the scripts and use an upload site to put up the txt instead?

 

Welcome to the forums. If you're interested in further modding, we have a discussion going with another modder that has some interesting information about modding.

Good stuff. I enjoy using some of these mods for subsequent playthroughs to create various custom characters to suit my purposes. Finding the old files can be pretty difficult sometimes though.

I feel pretty dumb having to ask this, but I've recently upgraded to Windows 10 after years of Windows 7.

 

Would anyone happen to know how to find the Files\Scripts folder on Windows 10? It's been driving me nuts for like three weeks now.

Since you don't know where the folders are, I assume you are using a shortcut to Geneforge? Right-click on the Geneforge 5 shortcut and click "Properties" at the bottom of the dialog box that comes up. A properties box will appear. Below the several rows of text boxes is a row of 3 buttons: "Open File Location", "Change Icon..." and "Advanced..." Click on "Open File Location". This will open the Geneforge 5 folder. From there, just go to Geneforge 5 Files and then to Scripts.

 

Make sure to backup your script folder before modifying anything, of course.

Yeah, I'd tried that before I posted. Going through the actual program files just brought me to the games icon repeatedly, and using the properties option only shows me the "Advanced tab." I don't know if having swapped to the Steam version a few years ago makes a difference in this or not.

Ah, it's on Steam. Find the Steam folder in either "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)". The Geneforge folders should be in "\steamapps\common\".

Hi! I'm not much of a techy, so I just copied the whole script and pasted it on the "z0pacificdlg.txt" script overwriting everything in the file, but now I get a "Broken dialogue and script" and can't talk to anyone or access anything. It would be much appreciated if someone could direct me on the right way.

You are probably missing a punctuation. One wrong character can cause an error like that. It's why you are warned to backup before copying so you can do it over from the original version.

 

Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. You might want it back when you are done. :)
