Default player name setting?
« on: August 04, 2021, 17:55 »

I know in DoomRL (err, sorry, I mean DRL... :P) we could edit the config.lua "AlwaysName" value so that you didn't have to type in your player name for each run. Is there a similar setting in JH? I checked its configuration.lua and the only name-related setting I found was "skip_name = false". Not sure if setting this to true means the last name entered just gets used or what so I figured I'd ask here.

Tomorrow is the big day. Thanks again for your years of work on this (and all your previous roguelikes) KK. Been a blast to be on this ride with you (and the team... including your brother). All the best!

I'd like to know this too.  It would be nice to not have to type "Tormuse" every single time.  :)

Eh, patience.  In my last [recent] conversation with Kornel, they were apparently fighting fires like crazy just to even get out of Early Access.  All the stuff that we were told in the Kickstarter and expect from the DRL will eventually make its way into the game.

He'd rather do it right than to do it half-assedly, and I respect him for that.

It's also likely that the option to set the "permanent" name will be done in-game via a UI element.

Oh, no worries at all. I'm not ranting about it, was just curious. We've all been in this together for years now, so clearly we know it's worth the wait. Good to see you again, been a long time (for me).
