Ok.. not really a bug but I wouldn't mind naming my character "Svi-an-Fanla-Brool", celtic name from a MichaŽl Moorcock novel. Sadly, it stops at 15 characters *cry*

Just take out the dashes and you have room. :)

Actually you can get around the restriction by pulling down the console (~ key) and typing in PlayerName Svi-an-Fanla-Broola and hitting enter.

Someone could also mod the newCharacter.mnu file to not restrict names to 15 characters.

Thanks :)

I can't open the console on a Macbook Pro (the tilde key actually shows # and @ on it). Is it enabled by default? Does the key combo work on the Mac version?

The console does work on the Mac in general. It sounds like it's a keyboard issue. On my iMac the ~ key is to the left of the 1 key.
