Squad Pre-Alpha Registration "Login"

Recommended Posts

Quick question.

 

"Login" is what we use to log into Squad - is it also our in-game name? My 'login' names and my in-game name are very different.

Whatever the situation, when things migrate to Steam in the next 6 months, well, itll be on Steam, so things will be more Steamy.

But, yea, I don't know the answer to this immediately. Let me check.

You use login name to login in with, from then on it pulls your Steam name.

 

So any name changes is done via Steam, and it takes a few hours to take effect

My Login is "Darman" but ingame I appear as Darman1138. I think it reads your Steam profile and takes that name.

 

I went through the registration process a while ago though and I'm not sure if it's the same now as it was then.

Cheers Devs.

 

I take it it's your "display name" in Steam and not the account name, because my steam account is so old (11+ years) that my 'username' is actually my first email address rather than a username!

 

^^^ Above appears to be confirmed.

 

Also, your can change your login name so don't worry guys. Thread can be closed, ta!

i F'd up and for some reason cannot find my Steam Guard email. and i don't know my Steam Guard special code.

 

i need to contact Steam Support now.

 

edit: this is due to the 'two-factor' authentication that the Steam Mobile app somehow convinced me to enable. This is what the 7th level of Hell is, do not use Steam Mobile two-factor authentication unless you hate yourself or are a masochist.

I know that feel, sometimes Steam doesn't send that e-mail for 2 weeks... after signing in from the same browser I always have. It can be really annoying.

 

you guys are welcome to record, stream, screenshot as you like. ;)

 

...but not share it or what?

From other Alpha/Betas I have been involved with-Yes, you can post youtube vids to the public. Its a great means of advertising. Just remember to post, flag, etc...that the game was in alpha. Try not to emphasize any bugs. AND be sure to give a link for the game somewhere. There is not a game developer in the world that wouldnt enjoy the free press from this.

That'll only take about 2 weeks. Steam support is notoriously bad.
