When ever I log out of the game to switch names, my remember name is still sticking with my Cryptic username.

I have tried leaving it unchecked for a some number of switches, leaving it unchecked till the next day, unchecking it and putting in my PWE name and checking it, and nothing has worked.

Is there some file I can edit to change it in the STO folder? I just need to take off three letters and my Cryptic name equals my PWE name.

I believe the launcher is supposed to be Internet explorer. You may have to clear out your hiostory within the browser.

May want to wait to get someone to verify this as I haven;t tried it myself

The launcher is fine, I don't have to do anything but type my password on the first log in to game.

It's the log in screen when you logged off that's not saving my PWE username, which means the data would be saved in the game's files, since the game is still running at this point.

Yeah, launcher seems to get the username from either the registry and a prefs file in the game directory. I can't find any mention of my 'new' PWE username, so I presume that when the launcher passes on the login details to Cryptic's server, it's there that the 'old' username is reused.

Thankfully I made work-around by changing my PWE username but I don't think that's practical for other users.

PS Why couldn't they just and 'STO_' or 'Cry_' as a prefix to all existing usernames, then give customers a one-time option to change it later...

So how did you change your PWE username?

I expect the "fix" is going to involve uninstalling and reinstalling. I hope I'm wrong. I made a ticket for this same issue, but I don't expect anything to come out of it.

I had this happen last night sort of. Seems like the username was the very last thing to load on the launcher.

Are you sure you just didn;t wait long enough for everything to fill out?
