    Hi all,

    a small question, does Player Name Management have unique name verification?
    If not, are there any ideas, on how to make players have unique names?

    I still doubt do i need to have players to have unique names for my game (with online mode) or not.
    Or let them have anything they enter?!

    Any suggestions?

    Hi VentaGames,
    Player Names supports unique names by appending a 4 digit number to any name the player chooses (e.g.: If you set your player name as VentaGames, it will become something akin to VentaGames#5313), this way if you choose to display the whole name to your players they will all have unique names even if their chosen names are not unique.
