can't seem to change Profile name for online
« on: May 17, 2017, 06:24:46 AM »
hi all
i don't remember if i had this issue with earlier updates, but currently, my ingame profile, which reads as CapeDoctor , #47 , doesn't seem to reflect when i try to join an online server.
my number appears - 47 - that's fine. however, my name is always 'unnamedProfile', even though in my game it is 'CapeDoctor'.
been struggling with this for some time now, even went so far as to delete the entire 'unnamedProfile' folder from Documents/PiBoSo folder, but no matter what i try, i can't seem to get my online name to show as CapeDoctor
anyone have an idea what i might be doing wrong here?
thanks in advance   :D

Have you tried reinstalling m8?, i had this problem before with beta11 , but in no time we had beta11b , so didn't have to deal with the problem.

Be sure after reinstall you set your profile before connect online.
