How to change ingame name?
I want to change my ingame name to something more… medieval, but at the same time I don’t want to change my Steam nickname to something that will confuse most of my friend list. I have tried changing it via console command, but that only seems to work in single-player/LAN. I have tried changing it via UDKGame.ini, but that doesn’t seem to work online either.
Is there some way to change my ingame name without modifying the Steam settings? Thanks.

setname name in the console. That should work in multiplayer, unless it was changed recently-ish.
Yeah, that’s the console command I was talking about. It doesn’t seem to be working. I guess they did change it.
Sorry for the necro but it’s a real shame this doesn’t work anymore.
Especially for someone that is a member of a clan or group and wants to show it off, a 3-4 letter prefix for names would be cool. Doubt I would use it but others definitely would.
Might keep people from using really obnoxious prefixes with tons of symbols in them.
It’s indeed annoying, in the unreal engine 2.5 you can change your name in just the console, in the unreal 3 engine it seems to be disabled, maybe to prevent abuse or something.
I have to use a different name for Chivalry, seeing my steam name contains a name i use for a unit im a member of for a different game.
I had put a suggestion into the steam forums to maybe add like a name option to the games properties in Library. But i doubt it will ever come.
Change your steam name. worked for me.
