    I just tried to rename the character in the source file (in xml) ... now I have the link made to "visitor cimetiere", but this is the only change. The name still does not appear in the game when you hover over the character with the mouse.

    Would you have any other idea?

    thank you very much

    Only if that aforementioned Bug is fixed, it seems. I guess cannot do much against it but hope that Simon will fix it soon enough. (I wonder why that Bug even exists in the first Place...)

    yes it's a bug. It does not matter for now, I'm working on other parts of the game, but I hope it will be corrected quickly. I'm not afraid, the studio visionary team are pros, I love their work and their serious

    while waiting for the correction of the bug, do not you think that we could find a solution via lua?

    Im not sure if this is an engine bug or your project file got corrupted since update to VS5.
    The name is not stored in the object. The object stores only a link to the current language where it should exist.
    I cant replicate your problem with any test project i create or update from version 4 to 5.

    I assume that there is something missing in the project itself so that the engine (or the player) can link the name correctly... 

    Im not that safe in reading the xml, but you could check this:

    in the project file, when opening it with an text editor (e.g. Notepad++) there should be a characters segment which begins with

    <;character name="name" 
    1

    replace name with the Character name you gave him in the editor in the character list. This is not the actual name which gets displayed.

    In it there should be a defnition for its name:
    <;CharacterName parentLink="T" id="10" tableId="14" LinkAny="F">;
    1

    The id="10" in my case refers to the language tables' 10th entry (tableid14=texts). Here your character may has a different id.

    Looking it up in the language table:
    <;Text name="Unnamed" id="10" order="10" lastModified="-1">;
     <;TextTextLanguages>;
      <;text Text="hero_german_name" path="" int="0"/>;
      <;text Text="hero_english_name" path="" int="1"/>;
     <;/TextTextLanguages>;
    <;/Text>;
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6

    should give for each language a "text" entry with the name in it.
    These should exist to link them properly...

    Thank you sebastian

    I have verify this and my xml is correct. I have the same values.....

    But the problem is same.

    If i fly my mouse cursor on character, the name of character is not show

    is it possible that there is a setting so that in vs, the name of the characters are not displayed when we fly over with the mouse, that I will not have activated?
