So I've been trying to mod the lighting inside the laser musket in Fallout 4 where you see the charge and numerous tutorials lead me to try and use blender 2.49b 32-bit.
However what I had to end up searching extra for were the following programs (in order):
Python 2.6.6 32-bit
Blender 2.49b 32-bit (obviously)
PYFFI 2.1.9 (tried 2.1.11 as well) 32-bit
Blender NIF scripts 2.5.9
I would also need to note that although I use a 64-bit computer, I have tried the previous programs in the 64-bit versions and they either didn't help or I ran into the issue where they didn't have compatible NIF scripts for the 2.79c/ upgraded versions of blender.
When I opened blender 2.49b 32-bit, the NIF scripts were installed and I saw the import/export option, but when I navigated to find the NIF with the laser musket, it displayed the following:
Blender NIF Scripts 2.5.9 (running on Blender 249, PyFFI 2.1.9)
Traceback (most recent call last):

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
