Is there a way to make the player name longer than 16 characters? I have searched the forum, but can't seem to find anything on this subject.

here to kill your monster
not sure 100% correct cos cant try it now but-
open the configuration setting file file 'user' in steamapps\common\Redorchestra\system
right up the top under default play is the name - if you can't enter a longer name here without the end letters being knocked off in game then i have no idea
tbh i suspect this wont work as i remember trying something like this ages ago on a game with same engine - oh and sorry if you have tried this already.

That does work, it allows you to add 4 additional characters, from 16 to 20.
Any other ideas?
