NI creature editing RES

I've been using Near Infinity to modify some creatures to make them more powerful, etc. I would like change the name of of some of them so they would be "boss" creatures.

In the Name and Short Name fields I can not change their names, why?

Use the dialog.tlk editor that comes with IEEP to write the names and get a strref.  Then all you have to do is enter the strref in NI and it will change the name.

I will get back with creature editing at a later time. Right now I have to concentrate on AREAs. So I will post more questions on creatures in the future unless I have someone else work on them.
