Name keeps resetting
« on: April 28, 2018, 08:29:26 pm »
Not exactly game-breaking but each time I start Holdfast it resets my ingame name to Rct. Spiffing (i.e my first custom name; it should be Pte.). I change it from the main menu each time but it keeps changing. Any ideas?

Can you take a screenshot of your options?

Something similar to this happened in last nights Public Line Battle a 77th Serjeant Major who's tags were set to: 77th | SjtMaj | Edmonster , Instead his name was displayed as a 51st Corporal, Can't remember the name exactly he had.

Bump (if that's allowed)

Does it reset your name every time you join a server or only specific ones?

By any chance could you possibly record your game? like you opening options showing name, and then relaunching game.

Bad news, that bump was unnecessary. Good news, I've fixed the problem (I'd whitelisted the game's steam directory instead of it's appdata folder with my security stuff, which contains the in-game options, so it's all good now). Thank you for your help everyone  ;D

Glad to hear you have it fixed, this will also help others for future reference if this occurs to them as well!
