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.

>Open Steam.

>Lower right corner.

>Open friends list.

>Right click your own name (at the top).

>Change profile name...

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
