Hello, so i’m debating with myself weather or not I should make my game use the displayname feature. Currently it uses names. I’m wondering what is the best to do for the current time in roblox playing and developing. Any help is apreciated.
What do you exactly mean by this? What type of game is it?
I’d personally recommend using normal usernames, but depending on what type of game you have here, you may want to reconsider. You could also just display both if you have the know-how.
I would use regular names just cause it’s easier to know who somebody is.
A fighting game. Thats the type of game my game is
Well then, regular name would be better.
Can you explain why this is? I’d really like to know why
As @PorgDotOrg said, it would be easier to know who someone is.
Do something like DisplayName(@Name) but the username in smaller text.
I’ve gone ahead and made the decision to make the game use diaplaynames. You might be wondering why but the reason why is because display names allow players to express themselves. I feel that being stripped away from the player isn’t that good tbh.
I’d say both, like have the display name show first, then show “@” then the player’s username, since multiple people can have the same display name.
I didn’t read what @DarkPixlz said, it’s the same idea.
