In the campaign, it forces your name to be Rommel's Force, Montgomery's Force, etc. Is there a way to make a map in the editor where all the sides have a forced name? It sucks seeing Russian Campaign AI instead of Russia or something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is just about the only thing I don't know how to do in the editor and it is driving me nuts.

PS: I already tried Scenario > Sides and Teams and then changing the names from Side 0, Side 1, but it didn't work.

Wink Nope, You cant change it, Its just somthing u got to deal with. Crying or Very sad When u create ur own maps do the same thing senario, sides and team. Otherwise i cant tell you anything about that. You can take like the Operation Market Garden map and etc. and change there names in editor. Thats all i can give u. If you play online, It will show ur online ID as ur name on the Corps HQ and etc.

Well that's a drag, oh well, i guess I'll move on to plan B. Do you know where the campaign missions are located in the A&A folder so I can take a peek at how they did it? Thanks.

Not even i have found anymap from campaign except market garden, and they have no triggers at all. You can right click A&A icon and open file location. Its possible u can change the map from campaign to the editor witha file transfer but make sure to copy if if found, of its off the campaign and i dont know what will happen. Rolling Eyes

All that sounds too troublesome, I guess I won't even try then. It makes me feel better knowing that it wasn't sitting right under my nose the whole time. Thanks for the reply.

One more thing. Do you know where the maps made in the editor are stored?

Only maps in the campaign will show side names set in editor, as opposed to displaying "Rommel AI" or etc.

the name of the side is determined by the SAI profile. so if you want to create a new name that shows up in the briefing/debriefing you just have to make a new SAI file to get things rolling.

of course, to do this you have to extract all of the data files, go into the SAI folder, and then create a new file based on an existing one. it's not difficult, just time-consuming. I plan on adding quite a few new names to "Uncommon Valor" to give players a bit more variety.

for the "Uncommon Valor" mod I've added about 300+ new SAI names based on historical figures. the names will show up in the mission briefing and debriefing

http://www.moddb.com/mods/axis-allies-uncommon-valor/images/atlantic-mediterranean-middle-east-generals#imagebox

the process is pretty time-consuming, though.

FYI: names that are cut short will display in their full form in a pop-up window when you scroll over them in game menus.
