Default Longer Skipper Names

Hey y’all I posted this in the general SH4 thread and no one responded, so I thought I would post here.

Is it possible to lengthen the letter limit for names when you start the campaign? Right now it’s 16 letters, including spaces and I would like to lengthen it to 20-25 letters if that’s possible.

welcome tucker.


the answer to your question is:no.
it is hard coded by the developers.
abbreviation makes it happen.


good luck. and good hunting.

Thanks for the quick response Mark!

And that’s too bad that it’s hard coded, I’m going to have to find a good way to abbreviatethe the very German name I want to give my U-boat skipper next OM playthrough. This might be hard haha.
