Whenever I am playing on my own listen server with bots, this command keeps being spammed every minute or so (haven't really measured time inbetween commands).

It is a minor bug, but it's annoying when you are entering commands in console, while suddenly, the /name; command is being given and erases what you just typed in the console.

I do not know if this was posted before, but I did not see any topics regarding this.

Nope never happened to me. Did you enter special characters in your name or something? Does the same thing happen when you're not playing ojp?

What does /name even do? I've never heard of it.

Your bot needs a name. That's the best I can determine from checking for that message in the source code. So name your bot and see if the message stops.

Or maybe like UDM said it's special chars, not in your name but the bot's name.

do you have xfire? might be xfire doing it. Go to Tools then privacy then uncheck Track Kill/Death ratio.

Razor, see botlib/be_ai_chat.cpp and look for RCKFL_NAME.

do you have xFire? as stated above it is most likely the reason causing it, not ojp.

/name is the userinfo cvar where your name is. thus, /name "anything" will change it or /name will display the current name.

Yes, I do use XFire. I will disable that feature and try again.

EDIT: I have tested it and the problem is fixed. Thanks for the help.
