Enabling the Renamer Addon

What is Renamer?

Renamer is a handy addon that allows players to see the custom NPC names for custom content on Nocturnal Souls.

Without it, everything that’s custom simply shows up as NPC… and that’s not very cool.

How do I get Renamer?

Renamer works with both Windower and Ashita and installs just like any other add-on.

  1. Create a new directory in the /addons directory of Windower or Ashita called renamer.
  2. Create a new directory in the /addons/renamer directory called lists.
  3. Download the Renamer addon at https://github.com/TeoTwawki/renamer/releases. v1.2 is the current version and works with Ashita v3 and Windower v4.
  4. Open the renamer.1.2.zip that you downloaded. Inside you’ll find multiple folders.
    1. For Ashita, navigate into renamer-master/ashita/v3 and copy the renamer.lua from the zip file and place it into your /addons/renamer directory.
    2. For Windower, navigate into renamer-master/windower/Addons/renamer and copy the renamer.lua from the zip file and place it into your /addons/renamer directory.
  5. Download the Nocturnal Souls NPC list (see below) and place it in the /addons/renamer/lists directory.
  6. Update your init script to automatically load the Renamer addon. These lines can be added anywhere in the file.
    1. For Ashita, edit the /scripts/{your-init-file}.txt (it’s usually called default.txt unless you’ve customized it) with:
      • /addon load renamer
      • /renamer load nocsouls
    2. For Windower, edit the /scripts/init.txt with:
      • lua load renamer
      • renamer load nocsouls
