    Default Abbreviated Name stat - 2134

    Is it gone or has it just moved somewhere that I can't find it? Wouldn't seem to make much sense to move it out of Misc stats, but it's not there. Only the full Name stat. Problem is, some player names are huge (like 15+ characters) and cause the HUD panel to stretch across the table and interfere with other stuff. I really need Abbreviated Name so as to keep the panel sizes reasonable.

    It should be shortened to 6 letters.

    I passed along the request. The 1.0 abb name is 4 letters. In 2.0, mine show 6, so it's not a lot longer.

    Are you saying you already have the Abbr. Name stat in 2.0? Because all I see is Name, and the HUD shows the whole thing no matter how long it is.

    Wrong hud up. Change your decimals for name to 2.

    Okay, that fixed it. You might want to relabel that option for non-decimal stats -- it's not at all intuitive to set decimals for integer or text stats, let alone that 2 decimals equals abbreviate Name to 6 characters.

    I don't think I could fit more than 3 letters in my HUD.

    It they're using 2 decimals to mean 6 characters, I'd think it logical to use 1 decimal for 3 characters? Have you guys tried to see if 1 decimal actually does anything? Again, not that I think it should be labeled as "decimals" but....
