How does Warlight get the default Game Name?: 12/15/2016 16:54:28

Whenever I create a new multiplayer game and "Load template", the final "Create game" dialog prompts for a game name... but it auto-fills it in with a name I typed for a game a while back, which I don't like. Each time I have to change this game name. I'd like it to default to something else. I even tried changing browser and it still defaults to this name. Does it store the game name against the template? If so can I edit it? I can't see Game Name anywhere in the template.

There is a workaround. Choose Template -> Change Game name -> Press Change Settings and go to end -> Save template => Now you have saved new default game name.

If you care for an explanation,

the game name is actually saved along with the template. In fact, so is all other details (team/players etc.) However, you only see the 'save' option after changing settings. Thus you have yo do the workaround outlined above, whenever you want to save a change to those settings.

This is indeed un-intuitive and bad design. One day it will hopefully be improved.

I don't understand your workaround - could you please explain in more detail? "Choose template" from where? Where is "Change Game name"? etc.

OK I think I figured it out.

- Create game
- Load Template
- Check "Customize template"
- Select template and click Next
- Click Next again
- Select "No" (crazy) and click Finish
- Change game name
- Click Change Settings
- Click Next
- Now click "Yes" (ooh I changed my mind) and save the template.

Next question - how do I change the number of teams stored with the template?

OK, I figured that out too. :-) Do the previous procedure, but click "Change Players" instead of "Change Settings". Then change the teams, then click Next, then click "Change Settings", then go through and save the template.

Yep that's crazy.
