MTA:DM Player Renamer

Something nice and simple, this automatically renames people called "Player" to their account name.

Nice work Dabombber :D
But just one little problem with analyzing that. :)

If the account name cannot be found, 'getPlayerUserName' will return false which will cause an error in the script because 'false' is not a string. That means the server will return an error and the player would simply not be renamed. I don't know what else to rename them to if their account isn't found though.

How about if the account name is not found then generate a name based on minutes and seconds or something.

I took the lazy way and did nothing if no name is found, although I've never seen any player without an account name. This also means it might be possible to have names like "Player(2)" so it renames them too. And in the unlikely event that the name is already taken, it does nothing (I'm so lazy :oops:).

Well, here it is. Haven't tested, but I'm sure it should work, cause I've manually went through it several times. It will rename the player to "Player(1)", then "Player(2)", and so forth if it cannot rename the player to the account name for the rare occasion. (For example, an LAN game but the server isn't connected to the internet.)
