Layer Comps to PNG without Numeric Prefix?

I'm going to be saving thousands of layer comps out to PNGs from a series of PSD files and i recently noticed that the script adds a numbered prefix to the name of the files. I do not want this number. Is there any way to run the script without the prefix?
The file names will have to be specific to what i named them in the layer comps.

the script makes a file that looks like _0012_BlueSox.png
I need it to say BlueSox.png

If i can't fix it in layer comp script, is there any other application that will strip out the prefix of these files?

Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Re: Layer Comps to PNG without Numeric Prefix?

After some research, i realized i can use the Extended Script toolkit and edit the script.

I tried removing the two lines in the script that add the number and the underscore.
The script would no longer work.

I have a new script that i found online but i am still left with the underscore before the file name.
An underscore is better then the whole numeric string but still not the solution.

I tried to upload the latest custom script but this forum won't accept that type of file.
