Choosing nickname on first launch
« on: March 15, 2013, 06:17:18 am »

Inspired by this post, eventhough the post is not exactly well-written he has a point. Most of us don't prefer seeing players in a server. So how about we ask people for their nickname when they first launch gg2, of course they should be givven the option to not fill in anything and cancel to just play. Shouldn't be too much effort to put this in game.

What do you guys think?

Well, at least we won't see much "Player"s unless they don't understand English and randomly click things.

If gg2.ini doesn't exist at launch --> global.firstTimePlaying = true;

And if that's the case, then query as soon as the main menu opens.

Then on joining lobby, not joining a server. People in queue sometimes get kicked out and that can be annoying as hell.

In the lobby we could add a field for entering usernames

You know something that isn't bad or intrusive like a popup
