Minor tip when creating your BoS user name
« on: December 29, 2015, 11:13:16 am »
Just a small detail, but if you decide to purchase BoS you will need to create an account based on an email address.  You will also need to provide a user name and optionally a squad tag.

Looking at the current list of pilots, any of you who create a new user name should be able to have your current handle without issues.  Just be sure to use the following info:

Username:  Use your current handle without the "AKA_", e.g. "Relent"
Squad tag:  Use "AKA_"

Then your player name (e.g. for flying online) will concatenate the two strings above and will show properly as "AKA_xxxxx", e.g. "AKA_Relent".

I don't see the option to make any changes to the callsign or squadron in the Profile tab
Is there an ini file that I need to go to?

Hmm, no, when I log into the http://il2sturmovik.com/ site and click on the "Profile" link, I can see my account page where it shows you the Username and Squad tag text boxes which I can then edit.  It's not the forum but the main site...

Actually I just took a quick look at the campaign stats page http://il2sturmovik.com/stats/campaign/ (searching for "aka_") and I see you already changed your name/handle so you figured it out :).
