    Offline player name problem

    Hi, on my work machine we are behind a firewall and the techs won't open a port for UT, so i cant login or create a profile. How do i give my player a name if i am in this situation as all i can do is play offline with my name as "Player". which is really annoying. also when the mac version comes out there will be a few of use playing on our LAN network and as you can imagine if we all have the name "Player" it could get a bit confusing.
    I suppose this applies to people who want to play but are not connected to the net.
    Any help please.
    I did try changing my name in the engine.ini file but is there a specific way to do this?

    cheers

    Type "name xxx" in the console.

      ok i'll give that a try, but that will need to be done each time.
      it would be nice if once you have set your character you can have your name without needing to be online.

            You play UT3 on your work PCs? My work PC would barely manage UT99!

              They also need to fix it so your settings actually STICK once you set them in Offline Mode. They only stay in Online Mode (I looked in the UTGame.ini file). This is also why you are just called "Player" in Offline as well.

                  Think the beta patch changelog says this is being fixed.

                  In the meantime, you could try editting the name field in your default ini file?
                  C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config\DefaultGame.ini
