#6354 new enhancement

Display server name in gamesetup lobby

Description (last modified by Langbart)

I think it would be good to display the server name in the gamesetup lobby. It would help remind people of what server their on, or give a hint as to the type of game.

Optional: Add an Edit button next to it that allows you to change the name of the game. Possible use case: A 1v1 turns into a TG.

Needs clarification: What do you mean by server name, the actual name of the server where all the games are listed, or are you referring to the name of the game?

The name of the game. The string that the hoster enters into the "server name" field after he/she clicks "host game" from the multiplayer lobby.

I think a good place for it to be displayed would be in the bar at the top of the game setup lobby that currently says "Match setup".

Replying to Andy Alt:

Yes, Match Setup is not that useful, having the name in there sounds like a good idea.

Some players choose very long names, therefore the number of the character should be limited.

Adding a patch number and adding an image to the description of the fgod mod in which this feature has already been implemented.
