Change name on DayZ Standalone

18 posts in this topic

So I installed Dayz Standalone and it automatically picked a character name, which happens to be my real name, which I do not want to be used while I play video games. How do I change the character name in Dayz Standalone?

As has already been mentioned, DayZ uses your Steam persona/community name.  This is not the same as your Steam account name.  FYI, It is not recommended you use the same Steam persona name as your account name.

 

 

You can change your Steam name from the Community tab and editing your user profile.

Since the last update a couple of days ago for some reason it's ignoring my Steam name and using my PC name.

 

So I'm running around as 'i7' and it's really annoying that the game is taking system information and injecting it ingame.

 

Guess I'll watch the vid posted above...?

With the new update all you have to do to change your name is go into the main menu where you can see play, configure, character, etc, and left click on your name in the bottom right corner to edit it. Hope this helps

      Many SKS models were able to receive a slight modification to either the gun or a separate 30 round magazine. This modification would allow a normaly internally chambered SKS, the possibility of receiving an external magazine. DayZ could easily allow a rare spawn of a "SKS Conversion Kit." This kit could be applied to an SKS to allow akm 30 round magazines to be used and added. Thus giving a SKS, more modification ability as well as making the SKS a more viable gun in close range situations. This suggestion is realistic for the model of the SKS in game, as the in-game model appears to be a similar to many models with existing conversions. The addition of this kit and and the 30 round mag would still make the SKS a semi auto rifle. Using an already implemented mag that uses the same ammunition would be beneficial versus adding a separate SKS magazine that would be near identical.

      Prophecy RP  - white listed role play server.
      We are two friends who met whilst role playing together on a DayZ role play server, we enjoyed the community, the creativity and the atmosphere created by the experience. We came up with the idea of Prophecy RP and decided to create our own server, build a community and provide a similar environment for other like minded people to come and experience the same. Our aim is to provide a server that is administered properly providing a serious and enjoyable atmosphere for people to experience. We have many ideas that we think will make our server unique from others adding something extra for the player.
      We currently have  40 slot server with plans to extend to 60 as and when population grows, we also have a eperate event server for events we plan to run every month.
      We have been running for three weeks now and our seriousness towards our goals is evident to all persons playing, our Admin team is extremely active which has also been picked up on by members of our community and it is something we pride ourselves on. Our rule set was made up with serious role play in mind and to protect players from "bad rp" and "trolls".
      As owners we took 6 weeks of planning putting together ProphecyRP to provide a place where like minded people can come together, it is not just about the game but also about community for us and we have grown very fast in the short time we have been open.
      If you are interested please visit www.prophecyrp.com and take a browse of our website, here you will find the video trailer for our server, our rule set and information.
      Whitelisting is currently open.
