Player Name ISSUE Vietcong Fist Alpha
Have a member who cannot change his player name when in the Multi-Player mode of Vietcong Fist Alpha v1.60.

When accessing "player" to select uniforms for US and VC it does not have the box at top allowing entry of player name?

He indicates that it is defaulting to an ADMIN name he uses on his Windows XP Home edition dual core system.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is there a fix?

Please advise and thanks in advance.

This might be a videocard issue, tell your member to uncheck Antialising and other modes in the videocard settings (nvida control panel or ccc).

I had the same problem and following the same suggestion of Silent Bob i solved it, also useful is change game resoluton to a lower value.

I have player name issue . my player name {420}Ninjutsu cleared by program and changed to " player " every time i play multiplayer . oddly , first letter of my player name is shown on the name field . for example , { for {420}Ninjutsu ....
Have you tried the compatibility mode before your problem started or you got that bug directly after the install?

I think this happens when compatibility mode is on.
Anyway, just use VCStarter to fix it (Option: "Fix resetting of player name/gamemode filter").

oh wow, you guys are awesome . yes, im using compatibility mode ( win98 compatibility ) , because it was laggy on xp . still laggy thou ! i ll try turn off compatiblty mode off and i ll tell you the result !
Unfortunately, it shouldn't work to put the compatibility mode "off" 420Ninjutsu... XP has created a "key" that will stay in your registery and as long as you will not erase it, the bug will stay, even after a VC re-installation!
Follow Brchi's advise, install his VCStarter! He created that program to make our life easier! Wink

sure , i will install vc starter . sir .
viva vc starter ! it worked ! by the way , what does unlock blood option do ?
  x 1
It unlocks the "Level of blood" option in Options->General.
eh , is it a parental lock thing ? my blood option is always unlocked ..
No, the options (None, Medium, Real) depend on the "marketing line" and language setting.
