Well, the thing is when I wanted to make more enemies and have them in one placed I named them for example AA_MON_Pizza_Roach (I like underscores). It looks bad when you right click the enemy (or even NPC) and see AA_MON_Pizza_Roach :D. So I have to name then normally, Pizza Roach. But then it is more difficult to find them, and if I wanted to do some change to all enemies there is a high chance I miss some of them.
That's where _MyName comes in! With this I could call my characters AA_MON_Pizza_Roach and the player would see the all beautiful Pizza Roach ^^.
(My linguistic skills are pretty low today so bear with me).

I approve of this request... but mostly because I want more per-character storage space. O:-

I would like bump this thread to nominate this request for the "Best Request of All Time Reward".

This would be so very useful, maybe even in official holds and TT's version of SMSs.

Sure! Kieren, would you feel comfortable translating that PR into the RPG codebase?

I guess I can give it a try.

EDIT: But I think I'll wait until the current patch is released, as that change is being held off until the 5.2 release.

Thank you! Sure, later is fine. There's a rpg-1.3-dev branch you can apply your PR to when you're ready to try this. If you have any questions about this, just ask.

Edit: I'm going to pick this one up now.

This was not as trivial to integrate as I'd first thought, as the code changes were based off some 5.x code that wasn't in the RPG codebase. I've pulled all the relevant bits over.

This will be in 1.3.
