I got this format from another thread, but every time I tested it it would change my name to (Substring((Entered chat string), 9, (Length of (Entered chat string)))). Someone help me.

Also, make sure that you have this condition:

  • Name
    • Events
    • Conditions
      • (Substring((Entered chat string), 1, 6)) Equal to -name
    • Actions

If you don't, people can change their name by typing "-name " even if it's at the end of the entered chat string.

Try its code and not text. . .

You have to make that part of the trigger and not enter it in as text as it is meant to retrieve something that is variable, and not be a constant.

Sorry GUI is not JASS (you can not just copy them in text form), so yet another + point to JASS.

This is the trigger after doing what everyone says, and now its not doing anything

And I honestly, have NO idea about JASS or GUI or w/e, so don't expect me to understand those things.
