Welcome. The way to do this is to download a Hex Editor (Cygnus will do fine) from the downloads section here. Then open the language.dll/dlx files and edit the names.

It is my impression that the method described by Lorenzo only works for you.

Assuming you renamed Hero Jason to Hero ElvenWarden (that wouldn't work either, because of the length of the name, but let's assume it for the sake of the demonstration) thyen your scenarios would show you the name you wanted.
BUT
the people you would distribute your scenario to would continue to see Hero Jason.

That would be thecause THEIR .DLL and .DLX files file are not changed, contrarily to yours. For anyone to see the same name as you, they would have to change the names on their own language.dll and .dlx files, which you shouldn't expect to happen.


Am I right?

But Wise_Max has a lot of fun playing. So, he always wins even when he loses the game. And he made Friends.
Is that Wise or what?...

Yes and no. You ship the changed dlls with the scenario, and warn people to make backups before using them. See my Conan Campaign as an example, others have changed dlls too.

My method works, but, as Phill says, you have to ship it.
