How do I change my name for Steam users? Fri, 14 October 2011 01:24
Hi there. I'm a new user through Steam and I have questions about my name. Why doesn't it use my Steam name? How do I change my name? If I go to "my account", and try to change anything it won't let me because it has a steam number in the email field, not a traditional email. If I change that to my email will I still be able to login through steam? This is very confusing...

Dear kpatrickdaniels:

Welcome to our site. We are going to improve the "My Account" web page, so that you will be able to update this type of information easily. Expect something during the course for next week.

We hope you have fun with the game!

I think my question is related.
I downloaded the game from steam and press play. It takes me to "choose your account and Sing-in". But i cant choose "the sign in through STEM". http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22428702/sign%20in.png
So i pressed enroll for a free trial account on our website!. On getting started page i finished 1.log in (steam account), 2.and enroll, but when i choose 3. download the game (windows) and open still dont have account.
I think i created the account here (Bloodymir), because i can post on forum Smile, and site says Welcome Bloodymir, but dont know where to find my password?

I think your problem is different: if the "Sign in with Steam" button is grayed out, it means that Steam was not launched or running properly on your machine. Like with any Steam game, Steam must be active before starting the game.

You signed up on the Web set using the Steam button: you did the right thing! You don't need a password, since authentication is performed by Steam - not by us. We don't even see your password. So you're fine on the Web site side.

Try launching the game again. If Steam is running properly, it will use your Steam account and log in automatically.

Thanks for help.
I restarted computer, "the sign in through STEM" was not grayed out, and logged in without a problem.

Great.

On our side, we updated the Profile page on the Web site. Steam users can now change their Login Name and enter their own e-mail if they want to receive our newsletter.

Click on "My Account", then "Change my Profile": http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/myprofile/

Note that changing your DoW Login Name does not change anything to the manner you log in into the Web site or the game, since this process is handled by Steam. It's simply for "decoration" purposes Wink

Have fun,

Yann
