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

      While modding SA is still a long way off, an BI has not released any official info, specs, or tools for modding SA, I think there is value in having a forum category to start talking about the subject.
      The three main reasons I think it's worth creating now are:
      To have a place for people interested in any of the different aspects of modding SA (be it concepts, coding, animation, or modelling) to share ideas and info, and to bring together people with different skills to combine their efforts. 
        Modeling discussion. Making quality models takes time. A lot of time. Why not use this time while we wait to consider what kinds of assets can be created and tested in ArmA 3 that should hopefully require little to no conversion? If one avoids weapons, vehicles, and certain types of clothing, as they are probably (AFIK) the assets with the most amount of differences in SA from A3, which would lead to a great deal of conversion/porting issues until we know more, that still leaves us with a ton of possible things to create. 
        Discuss the topic of how the player base and BI can work out the best procedure for submitting, collecting, and distributing mods and asset collections. While the end results would end up in the Steam Workshop, figuring out the most efficient ways to get to that point is worth talking about. Take modeling, for example. If there is a way to have a few 'community asset' packs available of player-submitted models that all mods can use, such as 'industrial items,' household items,' and 'farm items,' we can hopefully avoid ending up with 10 different models of the exact same item. Not only would that make detecting and debugging problems easier, but it would also help modelers make a wider selection of items. While it's perfectly fine to have 3 different kinds of coffee pots, for example, having 16 different models for 'loose wires ripped from an old TV' is overkill. Community asset packs also may help address some of the issues/headaches that involve rights/usage/attribution.
