I just noticed during the first days of the tournament, that many user use their forum name for gaming. Since most of them haven't set an online gaming password, I'd like to explain how you can use your nick in the game, without a suffixed 1.

On your Profile Page you have a tab called Gaming Password. There you can set a password that is only used for gaming. Enter this password in Widelands and you'll be able to use your forum name.

The password isn't stored in plain text; we already changed this misleading text in trunk. Only a hash gets stored and transmitted to the server.
