I reported this a long time ago when they FIRST did the Cryptic/PWE account mergers. Yet, this still remains to be an issue. My old ticket was even closed with them telling me to clear my IE cache....
Hey PWE/Cryptic, I have since partitioned, formatted and re-installed my OS and the game and you know what? This is still an issue.
So.. that means this information is not being saved on my computer and there-fore this is an issue on your end that has been ignored for several months now.

I am looking for the file in which the Game Client store the account name on my computer. The problem I am encountering is now that I have merged by PWI and Cryptic Accounts, I now log have to log in with my PWI account name. That is fine - the problem is that when I Log Out of my character in Star Trek Online, I am displayed my original Cryptic Username.
No matter what I do, I cannot get the game client to stop from displaying my original Cryptic Username. I have tried deleting every file in the STO installation directory, except for the /Data/ folder and contents - then let the game repatch to see if that would clear it. Sadly, this latter attempt did not work either.
For some reason, the client is not saving my PWI Account Username over my Cryptic Username in the game client's Log In Field.
I have tried unchecking the option to save, clearing the fields, and closing the client.
I have tried unchecking the option to save username, logged in with PWI Account, Logged Out.
Whenever I *DO* get it to clear the username field, as soon as I check the option to save my username, my original Cryptic Username reappears in the log in field.
Again, this is ONLY the game client log in field - which affects switching characters severely.
SO.... MY QUESTIONS IS: Where on my computer is the game client storing my old Cryptic Username for the Log In field? I would like to delete this file so that when I have to switch characters, it will remember my PWI Username instead.
Thank you for your time!
