Basically, I want to see what would happen if some of the NPCs who are meant to get killed in the campaign, whether cutscenes or otherwise, are prevented from being killed. For example, what would happen if the guy who slits Pvt Pyle's throat at the very beginning of the game is killed before he can? Or removed from the cutscene entirely?
I want to document this on my Youtube channel, but I don't know if there's any way this is even possible. I messed around with console cheats, but the best idea I could come up with was noclipping and trying to give myself a gun to shoot the guy who kills Pyle, but I couldn't. The game disallowed me from getting a gun.
The best I can think of is to find a mod that allows me to kill the SOB who kills Pvt Pyle, or editing the game files to allow me to have/fire a gun during cutscenes, but I don't even know where to begin.
Anyone know of any mods or another idea of a method to do this? I'm open to suggestions. I just want to save Pvt Pyle from endlessly getting his throat slit to see what would happen.
