I remember that there was option in settings where I could change my css player name, but I dont see it anymore.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Ye Community-Name. But I really dont get it why. Its so useless. If you different clans in mw2, css, tf2 etc. you have to change your steam name after each game start. =/

It's to improve the merging of in-game and Steam. The new Source Engine doesn't have a seperate name function because they find it somewhat useless.

I don't like it. But it's good for one thing, and that is hackers who spam name changes so you cant ban them easily.

Im quoting you with the chance the MAYBE someone will read that and realise that they didnt think of this flaw when they removed ability to change your css name.

Hopefully they will put it back in.

But then there is also this where the new system makes it easier to find your friend because he has the exact same name.

So who should they support?

The majority who might actually like this feature because playing together as friends is fun.

Or the minority of the already minority of the clan people who joined 2 different clans in 2 games.

I think the answer is quite simple. So it looks like you guys will have to live with it or stick to one clan.

an override function would do the trick.
standart would be the community name, but via cvar changeable ?

personally i hate that i'm unable to play "in privacy" without everybody knowing i'm online and bothering me. also i can't spectate those ppl anymore via fakename who are messing everytime no admin is present on our servers - they know now exactly when to cheat/ruin gameplay otherwise...

We've all been playing CSS with our 'friends' for 4+ years now and have been able to find them without problems.

In any case if they dont enable name changing Im sure we will find a way to fix that. Thats what we have been doing all these years - fixing the broken game for ourselves.
