A little trouble.

Postby ./Cy4N1d3\. » Fri Aug 19, 2011 8:16 pm

In the PS3 client, I was going to put my username in. I use it on my computer for folding. The name is "./Cy4N1d3\\." Notice the two \.

WHen I go to put this as my username, the PS3 clears it to "./Cy4N1d3." I have tried changing it to to "./Cy4N1d3\." but once again it removes the \. What is going on here, and how can I fix it? The PC version has no trouble with this , so it frustrates me.

Non-alphanumeric characters in user names are not totally supported. Sometimes they work, and sometimes they generate weird behavior. Id recommend using the username without any slashes or periods on both your computer and ps3. That's really your only option, unless you want to make a totally different user for your ps3. Sorry about that though.

Alpha numerica is supported. A few other characters are not specifically denied, but not supported. Sorry, it's a fah thing.

main faq
How can I change my username (donor name)?

The simplest way to change your username is go to the configuration panel (right click in the graphical display or click on the sys tray icon). You can change your username at any time. However, old work units will remain credited to the old username.

Historically this has never been granted and for good reason, can you imagine the workload placed on them if we all asked for them to manually edit accounts all the time?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

Just make a PS3-exclusive login Cyanide. Don't forget what folding is really about to you. (I hope it isn't points) ;)
