Changing abilities picked at character creation with Unity Console

Recommended Posts

I've been bashing my head against a wall trying to figure out how to respec my level 1 abilities. I want to change Whisper of Treason to Eyestrike.

I'll list what I've tried so far, but everything comes up with "the command or script 'addability' is not available at this time'.

I get this error message when opening up the little menu that hangs out in the upper right corner. I don't know how to set the object reference. If I press ~ to open the dialogue box, the menu goes away.


Console command template appears to be Addability objectGuid abilityGuid. I have been using the player instanceID b1a8e901-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 from the Obsidian game data formats documentation and the abilityGuid cd3127ab-e8b0-4a97-a4d4-b706945289b3 from the fandom wikia. I've tried:

  • addability b1a8e901-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 cd3127ab-e8b0-4a97-a4d4-b706945289b3
  • addability playerb1a8e901-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 eyestrikecd3127ab-e8b0-4a97-a4d4-b706945289b3
  • addability player_b1a8e901-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 eyestrike_cd3127ab-e8b0-4a97-a4d4-b706945289b3
  • addability player_sabine b1a8e901-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 eyestrike_cd3127ab-e8b0-4a97-a4d4-b706945289b3

et cetera, ad nauseum. I've tried changing case which seems to make no difference. I still get that error message:


I'm not a code-savvy person so I have no idea how any of this works. It's a real possibility I've missed out on somethings obvious, but I'd really appreciate some help in figuring this out.

I was a dope and didn't think to try that. That worked and I've got the ability now. I also unchecked the 'disable achievements' thing that comes up in the little menu, so hopefully I can still get them now. Thanks for your help!
