Any way to rename characters after game starts?

Postby Kostas » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:29 pm

I forgot to name my chars during creation and it's pretty annoying having 4 mages named New Prisoner. I noticed it after completing level 3 :(
Any way to change that?
I feel so stupid :(

Haha I did the same thing actually, is there some variable in the save file where we can edit our characters names?

Let's hope so >.<
Spoiler: show
I found out how to enable Toorum without doing his quest, just adding an empty txt file in the sav folder of LoG (documents, so maybe editing sav files is easy too, when are they releasing modding tools? ;p )

Don't read spoiler above if you are too sensitive ;p

I spent about 20 minutes playing with the name generator for EACH CHARACTER before I even stepped foot into the dungeon... :)

Heh I made another party and named them myself:

Minotaur Fighter: Asterion (original one from Greek myth)
Lizardman Rogue: Rog (sounds lizardy. plus it's short for rogue >.<)
Insectoid Mage: "Storm" (used quotes "" to denote it being a nickname or callsign)
Insectoid Mage: "Ice" (I run out of inspiration at this point ;p)

How's that? ^.^

PS: Maybe I should have called the lizard Gor, sounds better and less obvious. And I almost called the second mage "Iceman", but I didn't like it cause it's not human and it made me think of Kimi Raikonnen for some reason :/
Anyway too late now for changes ;)

You can probably do it from the developer console, but I have no idea whether it stays changed in a save. Save files appear to be either encrypted, compressed, or both.

It probably does stay changed if you save it in future saves only (not past).
Can you direct me to a page with info about the developer console pls?
