This plugin allows players to change their name without having to access the console.

This is especially useful in DoD and TFC, because in these games Valve disabled the name field in the multiplayer options with the hint that the Friends name should be altered instead, but this doesn't have an effect.

CVAR

amx_name_usage - Display usage info? 0 = no, 1 = yes

Version history:

v1.0 (KyleD)
- Original release
v1.1 (pizzahut)
- Bug fix: Global chat isn't blocked anymore.
- Change: A slash in front isn't necessary anymore, this is especially helpful for players who don't have an English keyboard layout.
v1.2
- Change: Made name change chat visible, so other players can see how it's done.
v1.3
- Players get a message when spawning, if the name is blank they get a name prompt.
v1.4
- Added multi-language support.
v1.5
- Changed trigger "name" to ".name".
v1.6
- Allowing any single character prefix as suggested by fysiks.
v1.6.4
- Bug fixes for single character prefix.
v1.7
Code taken from "multilingual.sma" for the following changes:
- Usage info is displayed 10s after joining instead of when respawning
and it's displayed only one time instead of two times.
- Added cvar to turn on / off usage info.
Other changes:
- Code optimisation
v1.7.1
- Moved the remove_task function as suggested.

Installation for multi-language support (required):

Put the file name.txt in directory/folder "addons\amxmodx\data\lang".

Link to the old/original plugin version.

He isn't around any more, so I think it's valid to release an update, especially considering that his plugin has a major bug (global chat is blocked completely).

Btw, I'm updating again, added multi-language support.

Using "name" as the trigger word can cause accidental name changes. "Name that tune!"

Just register_clcmd("/name", . . .). (works rarely lol) Also, my version has a confirmation menu before it actually change their name so that if they mis-type something they can refuse it.

If you really do want to use "name" as a trigger word then I would definitely suggest the confirmation menu.
