    Hi guys,

    Was just curious if there is a way to use the set player name for neutral hostile and passive. Essentially I am trying to use them as players since I am running out of slots to have players. By set name, I mean having it show the team name above their units when you hover your mouse over their units.

    I have tried triggering it but it seems to not be effective. There was 1 previous thread on hive about this, but the OP drifted away from his original topic and I could not find out the answer from his thread.

    I am only asking because I cannot have 2 AIs for the same colours, so i am trying to set my non AI teams (hint, teams who just have units placed around the map) to neutral hostile/passive so that I can have 2 extra slots for AI teams :)

    In the end, I can accept it just not having the name above the unit when the mouse hovers over it, just was curious if there is anyway to get around it.

    Thanks :p

    Hmmmm...
    As you are in need of more slots, I'd assume you have not considered (or tossed that idea away) updating to 1.29+ ?

    Have you tried changing name by player number directly? Neutrals are 12 to 15 (don't think you can do that in GUI where the neutral players are 13 to 16), don't remember which is which (hostile, passive, victim, ???).

    Regards
    -Ned

    its hardcoded to only draw owner's naming over non-Neutrals
