If it's just those guys, maybe there's a letter or symbol in their tag that just doesn't want to show up

If someone finds what it is PM me cause the exact same thing happened to me. Someone from the 420th. Really made me wonder though.

Hi Guys,

Just chiming in about the name issue you have noticed with =420th=

Essentially it is to preserve the uniqueness of the individuals name. Unfortunately a side effect to it is what your screenshot shows.

Is it a cheat, exploit or glitch?

I'd say glitch.

Best regards,

Hey Zen!

Nice screen capture of your handy work... hehe.

Hi all, but just to straighten out the books, it is simply a BF glitch. Yeah, when u use an ascii character in your name, it does weird stuff... (example of ascii characters: § € Â ¾ ¿ Æ È ÿ þ)

It will display as a blank or cut the rest of your name, and on a downside some characters even froze BF. I guess that's what I get for experimenting... lol.

Our Code of Conduct strictly prohibits the use of any hacks. It is posted here: http://www.the420th.com/mission/

Anyways, hope to game w/ u all soon! Peace and chicken grease.

[COLOR=burlywood]However, a glitch is exactly what an exploit is- a bug used to create a result the developers didin't intend in-game. I should've mentioned that intentional use of a bug to do something in the game you shouldn't be able to is exploiting, rather than what we saw in the picture. Whoops.[/COLOR]

K that is one to file away for future reference. That is a weird glitch though. I guess that the developers weren't counting on people using weird characters in their name. Oh well
