Is it possible to change a created character's name after starting the game please?

Thanks,
LS.

I don't think so; the name isn't editable in the mirror in the homestead that can be used to redo the cosmetic portion of character creation.

You might be able to use the EE pak extractor (latest version download) to extract the save files, find the current name and hex edit the file to change it. Even if that worked, though, it would produce a 'tampering or corruption' warning whenever the save (or subsequent ones from that point) was loaded.

I'm glad I waited for someone who actually knows what they're talking about as that would've been the first thing I'd have tried!

I hope they allow names to be changed in D:OS II, considering the number of times I've got past several hours' worth of gameplay before realising I forgot to change them. Roderick isn't really a good name for a small brunette woman.

My sympathies to you both, but don't you look at your characters' names while playing? And are some hours lost at the beginning really worth a wrong and maybe even irritating name for the rest of a game that lasts 60-80 hours on average?

Just curious, because I can't relate to this myself.

I'm not very observant! And yeah, I've gone back and restarted when I've found something really incongruous that I overlooked near the beginning, I don't want it irritating me constantly the whole time: I may not be the most observant, but once I have finally noticed something annoying, I'll keep on noticing it constantly... funny how life is like that.

In my case, I just kept going; not really sure how soon after starting that I noticed but, regardless, I wouldn't have started over to change the name unless i noticed it VERY soon.

Thank you both for your answers.

Vometia: Yeah, noticing things all the time once you discovered them is one of the funny things about humans. I now it very well. smile
