ALWAYS make a copy of the original file before editing, so you have a backup if something goes pear shaped!
You need a Hex Editor to edit this file.Install that first. Here is a link to a good free one I use - XVi32.
Now right click on the "english.lng" file located in your "Viper Racing/Data" folder then click "open" and browse to your hex editor exe file and highlight that exe.
Open the file, click the "search" at the top left then the "find".
Search for the word "driver" with the settings shown in the image below:
Result is shown below.
Now LEFT click the first letter in the name of the Ai driver you want to change as shown below.
VERY IMPORTANT - AT BOTTOM OF THIS IMAGE PLEASE READ THE FINAL NOTES
For one example after the phrase "DriverName:Easy:Driver0" on the RIGHT hand side the name of the driver is found there.
IMPORTANT note when changing a name in this file.
NEVER use more letters than the name given.For example changing the name Dunne to Damir is perfect.
IF you change an Ai drivers name to something shorter,for example Perrotti to Jane just add 4 spaces after Jane.
NEVER backspace when editing anything using a hex editor.
IF you do just exit out of the file you are in by clicking the "x" at the top right and DO NOT save changes.
Now start from scratch with the same file you were editing.
When you are finished editing the file just "x" out of it and SAVE changes.
