    Hello everyone.


    As some of you may be aware, RaceNet has a tendency to change your name based upon what your Steam name is. This thread is so you can notify RDRC Staff if you notice your RaceNet name has changed. Because this seems to happen on a whim, we won't be issuing any penalties for it, but it would be helpful if you check your RaceNet name after you complete each rally in the season.

    For some reason my Racenet ID wasn't appearing on the league page, nor would the RDRC appear in my leagues tab when in the game. This was despite Ole confirming my entry to the league.

    However, when I applied for the league in the game menus, it used my steamID and now everything shows up as it should, but just with my steam name instead of my racenet name.

    My Racenet name is Tophercheese172 and my steam name is Tophercheese. I think everything will be fine, I just wanted to let you know in case there were any strange results coming from either of those account names.

    If its tied to your steam name, then just changing your steam name will do it (the amount of stupid names I've used on counter strike and forgot to change it back xD )

    [EDIT] Logging out from dirtgame.com, then renaming my Steam Profile name, then restarting the game and going to the "Leagues" section seems to have done the trick.

    Still clueless WHY, but happy THAT it works.:)
    Text below is now redundant [/EDIT]



    Forgive me for being slow in more ways than one :D, but being unfamiliar with both Racenet and Steam name stuff, can someone please help me out here::O_o:

    I signed up for Racenet using Racenet name "RallyRoland" using password "X" and tied it to my Steam account.
    My Steam Account name and my Steam Profile name are both completely different ones though and Steam uses password "Y".

    Now, when I log in to dirtgame.com, using my email and password "X", it shows my Steam Profile name in the top bar (Not my Steam account name).
    Now when I go to "Manage account" it says "Hello RallyRoland." at the top and it says my Display Name is RallyRoland.
    But when I go to "View Profile" it says "Profile Info {Steam Profile Name}"
    I tried to join the league as per the "How to race online.."-thread but I'm afraid now I've tried to sign up using my Steam Profile name and not my RaceNet name....:redface::sick:

    Can I fix this by changing my Steam Profile name to RallyRoland, or do I need to un-apply for the league first and re-apply afterwards?? I'm confused..:redface:

    Thanks Ole :thumbsup:!

    Looks like steam changed it then, because I could log in with 1313 when I made the sign up :O_o:, weird.

    Quite usual. Will cause some issues when people change Steam nicks.
