Changing name....

I started playing single player with an off the wall name thinking I was just gonna try the character out but in fact have now kept and keep playing with him. My question is, I want to change the name but don't want to start a new character how do I do this or is it possible. :scratch:

if you browse in you diablo2 folder you should see the name of your character somewhere in there. Rename it to what u want but make sure u rename all the files to the same name.
I would think it should work.

If you do this, the game won't load ('Generic Bad File', IIRC) - it stores the character name in the .d2s file and compares it with the filename.

The latest version of ATMA allows you to change a character's name.

This was my very first thought and attempt. Worked great and even saw the name was changed in the char selection window but all went to hell when I clicked on the char to load...lol...I was like "oh, cool", "oh crap"

Thanks Guys.
Seems everyone in chat are morons, no one wants to help the new guy :rolleyes: well I know where to go now. :)
