NWN´s *.ltr files
Greetings! Has someone managed it already to get his hands at NWN´s *.ltr files? In a *.ltr file are the first- & sure names stored for every race and also for the compagnions and familiars. I had in mind to replace the names, but couldn´t open the *.ltr file properly. It works with a hex-editor, but doing the job that way would take months. Any ideas or suggestions?

This was discussed a few times back in the day.

The .ltr files are used to generate random names at character generation on a probablity basis.

I don't think any of the available community tools will edit them, though.

Presumably, Bioware made them with a special editor, but it was never published, as far as I know.

Thank you, Proleric! Looks like there´s nothing that we can do. Currently, I´m stitching a list with names together and will upload it these days.

LTR files are relatively simple probability lists and letter lookup tables for various parts of the name. I can look into writing up some docs on it, but editing them comfortably will require more than a spec. Additionally, those tables won't be loaded for new characters on servers unless they run nwncx_connect.

What are you trying to achieve?

"Additionally, those tables won't be loaded for new characters on servers unless they run nwncx_connect." Ah, ok! Thank you for the clarification, Niv. I hoped that it would be enough to put the new *.ltr´s in the override. Guess, uploading a *.txt document with a wagonload of names is the best solution. Thx for your help!
