Name Change

Question

TheRickster    0

Hello everyone, I'm new to DayZRP and I was recently kicked by an admin because my name was not the same as my RP name. How can I change my name to my RP name? Thanks.

You need to change it to something with a full name such as Ricky Smith.

But I think you could be more creative :P

You have to go to the menu of Arma 2 OA, click player profile, select the one called Ricky, click edit and then change the name to what you wish.

See this thread in-case I missed anything: http://www.dayzrp.com/t-ingame-names

I went to player profile but it will not let me change my name? I click on the name box and nothing happens.

Try creating a new player profile, that should let you edit your name.

The first profile's name cannot be changed. Create a new one and you will be able to change name.

As Burgz said, you need to have an RP name, which is a first name AND last name.

You can do this 2 ways.

Go to Player Profiles, in the ArmA 2 menu, and either;

1) Edit the profile "Ricky"

OR

2) Make a new profile with the name you want.

Make sure that these names fit in with the IGN 'rules' found here:

EDIT: I believe that the 1st profile has the same name as your PC name. Just make a new one, to be able to change the name of it. :)

Alright I created a new player with the name I want to use. Do I have to change my player ID now? And how can I delete the original profile?

Nope, you just have to click it to select it. PID stays the same with your game.

Your PID is related to your game, so it will never change.

And I don't think you can delete the original profile. Don't have my computer so can't check.
