Quotation marks not working in Command Console.

#1Cartwright01Posted 12/2/2011 11:54:19 PM

Ive searched all over the place and I have only found one other thread on this topic. And it is locked. And also useless. Im trying to perform the help command in the Skyrim command console, but the quotation marks wont work. I can type in "help elven 0", and it will list all things elven. But if i just want to search for elven armor, I cant. I have tried "help elvenarmor 0", "help elven armor 0", "help elvenarmor", "help elven armor", and like i said, the " button just does not work, so i cant even try typing in "help "elven armor" 0" like everyone says to do. So.... What the hell do I do? ' doesnt work either.

The solution in the other thread was to put the two words together, like "help elvenarmor 0". But as I said, I have tried that.

Don't use the quotation marks around the entire command. People just use quotations around console commands in posts to help separate them from the rest of the post.

If you are looking for elven armor, type HELP "ELVEN ARMOR" 4, then use the pageup button until you get to the item you're looking for.

I know how you feel, since the last thread was started by me and I was met by rude comments and very little actual help. In the end I just used online listings of IDs people have found.

Works fine for me... http://i40.tinypic.com/x6ltfn.jpg

Hell, even if you can't get that to work, you can just type HELP ELVEN 4 and use the page up key to scroll up until you find elven armor.

Yeah, I know but thats annoying so id rather just find a fix for this. Thats weird that its not working for me. Typical though. Random computer problem that nearly no one else has. At least this one isnt super important.

Yes, typing the word together worked but only for a few items then most of the time I just errors.
