Account Options for Dummies


From experience, the Account Options section seems to be one of the most challenging aspects of the game for new players. This 'Help File' has been created to help new players change their character name, adjust gang tax levels, change their password, add character pictures, and character captions.

Changing Character Name:
The process of changing the name of your character is fairly simple, yet many new players have difficulty with this. The most common reason for changing your name is to add a gang tag, but you may just want a change as well!!
To change your character name, do the following:
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Change Name'
  • Re-type your character name IN FULL (your new name, or your old name PLUS the additional gang tag)
  • Click the 'SAVE' button.


Adjusting Gang Tax Levels:
When you join a gang, you will be taxed on the amount to Experience (EXP) and money you earn in battles with other players (NOTE: You will not be taxed on EXP gained using the 'Battle Simulator'). Tax rates vary between gangs, but you are able to adjust your tax rates above the gang minimum.
To change your gang tax rates, do the following:
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Player Options'
  • Adjust your Money and EXP tax rates to the desired level
  • Click the 'SAVE' button


Changing Password:
This is probably the easiest thing to do:
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Change Password'
  • Type your current password, new password and new password again into the appropriate boxes
  • Click the 'SAVE' button


Adding a Character Picture:
This is easily the most requested area for help, and the one that most people seem to have the most trouble with.
To add a character Picture, do the following:
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Player Options'
  • If the image you want to use is from an internet site: Simple right click on the image and select 'Properties'. Copy the URL or the image (its web address) and paste this information into the box titled 'Character Picture'.
  • If the image you want to use is NOT from an internet site, and is only on your PC: This is slightly more difficult. You will need to create an account on a website that lets you upload and store images (I use UPDIT.com- http://updit.com/- but there are many others). Go to the site and follow the links to create a new account. Once created, upload the image you want to use. You will then be able to get the URL of that image in the same manner as described above (this information is also often shown with the image on the web page). Copy and Paste the URL / Direct Link into the 'Character Picture' box.
  • Click the 'SAVE' button


Adding a Character Caption:
This is another of the easier aspects of 'Account Options'.
To add a character caption, do the following:
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Player Options'
  • Type the captions you wish to appear on your character page in the box titled 'Character Caption' (NOTE: Do not include insulting comments or swearing here, or you will get into trouble with game staff!!! If you want to add a break-the same effect as hitting 'Enter' normally has in a Word Document- then insert [br] in the appropriate spot)
  • Click the 'SAVE' button


VIP Account Options

Changing Name Colour
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar

  • Click the 'Save' Button

Add Removal
  • Click on the 'Account Options' link on the left hand side toolbar
  • Click on 'Layout Options'
  • Change the 'Show Ads' Box so its not ticked
  • Click the 'Save' Button
