Custom .nam file
« on: August 11, 2014, 04:41:27 am »
I'm trying to make a custom .nam file for all my rookies.

I have not put any lastnames in and only a list of nicknames in the malefirstnames.

Unfortunately it crashes on launching a new game.

What are the parameters that I need to follow to do this right?  (I couldn't find any hard info in forum searches and in the wiki). :(

Thanks!
Cheers, Ivan :D

Can I get it to run with out last names?

I just want to have them nicknamed.

If the Lastnames are a hardcoded requirement, I'll stop trying to do the impossible. ;)

(Edit)
I thought SupSuper set it up so it could ignore the lastname...  https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?topic=1637.msg15188#msg15188

Ok, Thanks, Falko! That got it!

I split the names between male and female and left lastName with no entry after it, and it works.  :)

Cheers, Ivan :D

You can have the same lists in both genders if you want full equality. :)
