Ok, I just read the bottem posts about how you have to edit the line, but how do I do that? What file do I have to edit?

Ok, so I edited the 2nd line with # coding: utf8, but it still gaves me a syntax error. It cant decode the bytes 0-5?

Under there is mentioned how to fix it. Make sure you did exactly what the post there tells you too since Python can be picky. Otherwise if anything fails search the file for the letter 'ü' which should exist only in the comment section at the beginning and change it to 'u' or something like that. This should keep Python happy no matter what encoding is set.

Hey i got you HL2 .smd exporter for blender and i keep getting an error message when I try to export anything.
This is the error:
Traceback <most recent call last>:
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Documents and settings\My Username\Application Data\Blender Foundation\ blender\.blender\scripts\", line 6
SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xfc' in file C:\Documents and Settings\My Username\Application Data\Blender Foundation\ Blender\.blender\scripts\ on line 6, but no encoding declared; see for details

I'm gonna go check out the python website but I'm a noob to python and moddb... so i figured i would ask you for help.
PS: This is all hand typed

If you would have read a couple of posts below your post in my profile you would have noticed somebody asking the very same question ;) . I'll add this to the download section as a FAQ since this one comes around way too often.

I tried to use your HL2 exporter script and i got the error, Non-Ascii character 'xfc' on line 6 but no encoding declared. Happened on both of my computers that i've tried so far.

Yeah, that's a known problem and happens with the new Python Interpreter. They changed the rules for text encoding which causes this problem. This mess happens just because of my family name. Python hates it :P . Can be fixed by adding the following line as the second line in the script ( right under #!BPY ):
# coding: utf8
