Is it possible to rename an open character?

I'm a bit unhappy about a misspelled name on one of my open (single player) characters. Is it possible to rename him in some way? I tried simply renaming the file, but the game declares something about bad character version and locks up.

Is there a trick to it, or would you recommend an editor for the job?

Well, ATMA has the capabability to change character names. Check out the sticky at the top of the page.

Er, how? It seems to be a read-only bit of data. And I think I did allow it in the options.

I'm really confused by ATMA. Everything indicates that it should be able to edit things like skills and similar, since there are all those checkboxes in the options, but there is no way to actually change anything.

I really wish I knew how to do it, my mouse sometimes doubleclicks and that can really screw up skill allocating...

all the char editing was disabled in ATMA, except for the name

To elaborate on Phatbrava:

Those editing features were supported in ATMA in earlier versions. Though they have been disabled the options appear intact but are greyed out. There should be a button next to your character name labeled "edit." Click it.

i think in general skill editing isnt realy liked here

and if you mess up the char name and his stats, you can always rebuilt him :p

My highest character is a 66 necro stupidly named Skellemelee. I HATE that name, but I somehow feel it would be wrong to change it. Maybe its just my reminder to myself never to name a character after the playstyle I intend ever again!

Hmm, that reminds me, I need to fire up VPC and run ATMA to change the name of my latest hardcore character, RunIntoSparksAndDie.
