I wonder if I'm doing something wrong. I usually use War_Cross as my in game name but thought I would use a different name and avatar. The new avatar loads fine and shows up on my HQ. But when I back-space out War_Cross and type in a new name and hit ok ... the name War_Cross is still on my HQ. Erwin reset it so I could try again but the same thing happened. has this ever happened to anyone else and if so, what is the fix ?

Just rename your HQ planet. If you name is changed in the score area...then you are set to go. Just rename your home planet to something else.

I just explained that I renamed my HQ, but it doesn't work. Also there is no way to see my name in the scoring area until the game starts. By that time it's too late to fix the problem.

Go to the "Recon" tab, owner of your HQ planet should show your Empire Name.

I forgot about that. Now I hope it's changed in the score window. Thanks a lot.

Yes it will be renamed in the scoring tab to whatever you did when you created your avatar. The name of your HQ planet always seems to stay the same and needs to be manually changed. Glad we got it figured out for you.
