Thread: Need a new name for the Halloween season?

    Need a new name for the Halloween season?

    Halloween Masquerade:

    For the month of October only, you can change your name to a Halloweenish name, free of charge. Please keep the names clean and appropriate for all age groups. Also please don't make them epic novel names. 17 characters (spaces included) is the maximum length you can change it to. These names are temporary only. If you die, it will revert to your original name. While we don't mind changing names, we can't do it for everyone 20 times an hour so if you're hunting in a dangerous place, ask us to change it after you're finished. WARNING: Changing your name, even temporarily, will reset your desktop, hotkeys, shortcuts, etc. to the original desktop. You can uncheck Use Default Desktop (on paperdoll, Options, mouse icon), then replace the new name's desktop with your original name's desktop (PM for more info).

    PM Staff for your name changed: (2009's staff names)
    Headless Haazeman
    Ima Goner
    Otto B Alive

    We aren't sure yet what staff will name their staff characters, so check for anything that looks like it has staff colors since we have no clue who is who *looks sooooooo confuzzled*

    Make it fun. It's a wonderful time of the year! It will only last until right after Halloween and you'll all be reverted to your real names. Be creative, be humorous, be as scary or as funny as you'd like.

    To replace your hotkeys, shortcuts, icons, settings from the paperdoll, etc. First, on your new temporary name's paperdoll, click Options, click on the mouse icon in the upper right corner and uncheck Use Default Desktop, and Apply and Okay.

    Now, Locate your Ultima Online folder inside your EA Games folder in Documents & Settings on your hard drive. Go through the folder until you find your account name, then server name, then your original character name. Hold down CTRL and A and C in succession (CTRL A, CTRL C). Then go back and you should find a folder with your current temporary character name. Open that folder, and CTRL V to paste the original files over the current ones there. Make sure you're logged out and you do want to overwrite the files with the new ones. Now that that's done, double click on uo.cfg (open as a notepad if you need to set the association for it). About 10 lines down, you'll see your original character name (Damara for mine). Backspace the character name out and replace it with the new temporary name (Cereal Killer). Save changes and close the file.

    Now when you start your game again, you should see all your hotkeys, shortcuts, font and type settings from your original file in your new temporary name file.
