Now you know how to steer, shoot and talk.
Then next step is to get yourself a real name instead of your username.
Especially if your username happens to be root, which is the most common among homeplayers.
You can change your name in Xpilot by starting Xpilot like this :
xpilot -name <your name>Where you obviously have to substitute <your name> by the name you desire.
If you have found a nice name you wish to keep for yourself, you can go register it at the metaserver. You can directly telnet to the metaserver by typing
telnet meta.xpilot.org 4400It is easier however to use my cgi-script, where you just have to fill out the form and then my site will automatically register it for you.
Yup, you're completely right. But root remains the most common newbienick around. :-)
