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

      Hello Survivors!
      I have just started a New server wich is called "TheVikings". Due to this i need players on the server aswell as member to this clan.
      I will pay for the server that is a 30 slot server and i will not be asking for Your Money!. I want mature players, and i also need som admin to Control the server when i am offline. Server info: 185.16.87.50:2602  and are located in Norway.
      Why would you choose this server to play on?
      Because this server is not only KOS, but i`m courage you to interact With other Survivors in a way thats safe.
      Of course Survivors will have theyre own agenda for gameplay and so on, and i will not tell you how to play. My Squad should be sharing my vision on this game tho.
      Im looking forward to meet some new player on this new server, until then, have a good one!
      Regards TheViking.
       
      PS. There is a New facebook site aswell, like it to suport us! https://www.facebook.com/Thevikings-576116936111705/
