Name Does not work

Recommended Posts

Hi all, So, I applied for this and  got in. Well, I changed my In game name to Garry Davison and then had to restart the game, when I come back in, I hop onto DayzRP and get kicked for improper RP name, surely enough, its been set back to my other name! Now, since this is an issue that affects me on only this server, I figured this was the best place to get it fixed. The name basically resets itself to my original name (LocalYT) everytime I relaunch the game. What can I do to fix this?

Does your game crash when you're trying to close it?

This as occurred to myself and other friends for a while, and I've been told that you have to re-install your game to stop this occurring. 

I did some research and found that if you change your name to your RP name, go back to your desktop and go to your DayZ Directory  (..\Documents\DayZ..). Once you've found this, change the DayZ.cfg and Yourname.DayzProfile to Read Only. This may stop the game making changes and stop setting your name back to default. Not sure if it works for sure, but its worth a shot.

try and go into your Documents and then click on the Dayz folder, then check if your RP name has a file or if the name of your computer has a file.

My buddy had a similar problem a while ago, he reinstalled his game and it worked.

I'd try one of the solutions posted above before you try this, keep us posted.

Like Flapjack stated above, try the longer name guide. Apparently this should solve it. But the reinstall should fix it too.

Hey, so I tried this guide and the problem i now have is its not saving as a DAYZPROFILE file, but instead as a regular text documents, so its not technically doing anything, its just made another document. Any advice?

The thing is, its not setting it to a default, its setting it to an old username. I had changed it before, I just cant change it from that.

Indeed it does.

Since it doesnt seem to be working, I can record myself doing it and send you a link to it, prehaps a visual would help more?

actually, this did fix it. I had to make a slight change to the guide though, thats all.


Hi Everyone! I'd like to start off by saying thanks for all the help, I figured out the issue. Luckily, one person that replied linked me to a guide. Well, it was a working guide, the only issue was that it forgot to say to right click your name, select properties and then uncheck Read only. That way a new document does not have to be made.
