  • Anyone been able to set in-game name?

    Has anyone been able to set their in-game name to something other than their account name?

    I don't think you can. At least I haven't been able to figure it out. I just created a new account.

    I know that in GameSpy Arcade you can change your profile and change your nick (account name) but doing that didn't take for me... might have to wait for some type of server sync doing it that way.

        Enter the console (tilde "~" key) and type:

        localProfile.setNick [nickname]

          Have you had that work Phyllis?

          I tried setting my nickname via GameSpy, but nothing.

            I just looked in the alias file and I think you should be able to type the following after bringing up the console (~)

            Code:
            name [nickname]
            I'll give it a try tonight.

              localProfile.setNick [nick]

                Does it work is the question.

                3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                    Anyone having luck with this... I would like to add the TG tag to my name to separate myself from the hordes of non TG members on the server.

                      Just create a new profile, and then copy all of our other config files over except the profile one. You won't have to remap.

                        Where exactly are the profiles? I cant seem to find anything specifically referring to a certain name...

                        \\battlefield2\mods\bf2\Settings ?

                        \\battlefield2\Profiles\Local ?

                              Bah! Says |TG|octavius is taken. That's garbage, or the system recognizes it as the old account TGoctavius. I won't bother til the game comes out. Maybe we'll have options for CPID's independent of account information.
