Sex is like math. Add the bed, subtract the cloths, divide the legs, and pray that you don't multiply.

Graffic/problemsolver, this is a topic for you. If you claim you know so much about it, then you should be able to answer this question.

I just checked "cheats" above

to change name it is

I'm fairly certain that you would use:
SetActorFullName "Tobi"
Unless it was significantly changed from Oblivion, that should be right. Don't forget the quotes.

Grafffffffffffik just failed. That command only can change your character's name. It brings up the same box as you got in the beginning of the game.

For some silly reason, SetActorFullName seems to take a Message (MESG) instead of a string.

For example, when Harold gets (re)named, they use SetActorFullName NamedActorHarold.

NamedActorHarold is just a message with the title "Harold."

Oh, easy solution.

Install FOSE, launch with FOSE, use SetName.
