Default Nickname issue... - 29-08-2011

Hi, Solders!
I invented a real cool nickname, but ET denied it! All problem is about backslash - "\", ET just reject this caracter in nicknames! I can see my nick in Limbo-menu, but "Tab"-list write "Unnamed player"! I had the same problem with CS16, but CSS can displays nicks with backslash. I have latest ver of ET - 2.60b. Can enybody fix this, please?

PS: yeah, I know it's a BOTS forum, not ET-game, but If someone knows...

Backslash is reserved for a special function in client to server communications in ET (and probably many other Quake3 derived games). It marks and delimits each record (for example issue the configstrings command in the console, then scroll up to find your alias after a n\. The next record prefix is t\ for team etc.) So a backslash can't be in your alias because it will cause havoc with server communication. And standard C string handling uses backslash to escape a character so I don't see anyway to do that either.

.one Ringstellung to rule them all.
