    Hey, I'm trying to figure out how to make scripts and such in Fallout 2. I've got very little experience with modding, but I'd like to give it a shot. Anyways, I followed this tutorial from Quantum Apprentice on YouTube, and I followed his exact instructions, but I keep getting the error message "Could not find file scrname.msg". Does anybody know how to resolve this issue? Thank you so much!

    Where does the warning show up? Did you extract the scrname.msg file?

    Yes, I did extract it. When I'm editing a file, and I got to list it, that's when it comes up.

    In which modding tool does it show up? BIS mapper?
    make sure the path in the mapper configuration leads to the right place.

    Try copying scrname.msg to here - C:\Fallout2\data\Text\English\Game . If this doesn't work than try creating a folder called master.dat and put the scrname.msg here - C:\Fallout2\master.dat\text\english\game

    And again, make sure the path in mapper.cfg is correct.

    I'm getting the error in SFall. Sorry, can't believe I forgot to specify that. I think I fixed it though! I'm not getting the error any more.
