Hi Guys, I'd like to connect to our SOF2 server anonymously from time to time, to see what kind of experience the average player gets with no admins in the room. We are running ROCmod 1.7b.
I edited my sof2mp.cfg, changing the binds, the seta cg_selectedPlayerName, and the seta name cvars. When connecting to our server, it still shows my real player name while I'm "connecting" until I actually enter the game..........Which is not very anonymous. LOL I am not running alias finder or anything like that. Why doesn't this work??

Sometimes PB don't like people being anonymous
Sorry, I meant I would like to connect with a different name. The server is set to allowAnonymous 0. I change my name from Regent in the sof2mp.cfg to something else. I use a different, valid key so I don't connect as an admin. The instant I begin to connect to the server, it lists Regent with a -1 ping, connecting. When I enter the game, the name on the scoreboard changes to the new name. Why does this happen:confused:

I know some people have had this problem too, i think they search for eg Regent in their configs (base/Mods) and delete the name and replace it to whatever.
I don't spend enough time here

its real easy dude,,,just change yur name in game,,and make sure you change it by starting up the mp game first and changing it there also
change before the game and change ijn game then quit next time u reconnect you will connect as your new name,,then enter as your new name i fool my clannies all the trime with this!!lolololol
Thanks for the replies guys!
I thought since I was connecting from ROCmod directly, I would only have to change the cfg for that mod. The method you suggested works fine!:) What up -=ODB=-Sitting_Duck!!:cool:
