0.7.2 Win x64: %bn[unhandled] in biography

Post by pango » Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:19 pm

Appeared in a stream I'm watching, it seems to be a random wizard name (Breton Name?):

%rn used in N0B20Y05 looks similar (Redguard name?)

You're probably right; If %rt is Regent Title, that may very well be Regent Name.

So the link with %bn may not be that obvious

For %rn we still have the problem where some research needs to be done on what names classic uses. Are they random or predictable, based on region, use specific region rulers Queen Morgiah or whatever, or location regent?

As for %bn Breton name seems plausible, but since this macro only seems to be used in the char bio texts maybe it's bio name... so just a random name?

I can implement these macros as soon as we know what they should do. :)

[unhandled names]

Post by Floppy N'Wah » Thu Jul 25, 2019 6:33 am

Hey guys, so i keep getting [unhandled] or something in place of names. also in my characters bio the guy my dad and i stole from is [unhandled]? I've also seen this issue on a few youtubers vids so pretty sure this is prob well known issue. just curious if it's something i did or a fix i can do? either way unity is the greatest thing TES has seen since Tamriel Rebuilt.

The devs try to fix them whenever they come up. They'll need a source (example) for the error.

Related to this existing bug report - viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1703

As Hazelnut noted in the last post currently in that topic, it may be just a random character name ("bio name"), which does seem likely from the context, but I'm not sure how this can be definitely confirmed from classic's usage.
