    SAY 0x8 -> SAY NAME1
    SAY 0xc -> SAY NAME2

    New bug though: I'm trying to change the description with SAY DESC, but once I load up the mod, the stref stays the same. Must it be referenced to strings into the .tra? Or is this coding not good? Thanks for your time all!

    Since you edited your first post, I don't even know what you are trying to name. A cre? An item? A spell?

    Please don't edit your posts, without your question the answers don't make sense any more and others can't profit from them.

    Hello @jastey, sorry for the inconvenience. Im trying multiple items conversions using COPY_EXISTING ~item.itm~ ~override/item.itm~
    After they say I have parsing error if I place the command REPLACE directly after COPY_EXISTING, so I erased it from my .tp2.
    Changing NAME1 AND NAME2 worked perfectly, but the command SAY DESC doesn't change the descriptions once I try the mod. I figured it must have something to do with the stref and it must be linked to a string in my lang.tra if I want it to be replaced. Then again, no luck there because I also get a parsing error if I follow a SAY command with a @ stref

    Example : SAY DESC @1 \\~description~

    I'm just confused. I've read several tutorials, but not one is able to teach me this basic stuff ( I am no programmer mind you, been less than a year since I began modding

    SAY DESC is for identified item, there is also SAY UNIDENTIFIED_DESC for the description in case it's not identified.

    This syntax should work, though:

    COPY_EXISTING ~item.itm~ ~override/item.itm~
    SAY NAME1 ~new name~
    SAY NAME2 ~new name~
    SAY UNIDENTIFIED_DESC ~new unidentified description~
    SAY DESC ~new identified description~

    If you still have a parse error or don't see the new description in the game, post your tp2 content here.
