How can I permanently change gallery display name for the Multiplayer Mod?

Post by Me4k0r3a on Mon 14 May 2018, 05:54

I've been playing with the Multiplayer Mod in sims 4 and every time I speak I see CODEX. I want to change that so when I'm playing with ppl, they don't know i cracked the game. is there anywhere in the files that I can change the name and maybe the picture from codex to something else.

Hello @Me4k0r3a,

Go under Game\Bin, where you have your Sims 4 installed. Look for the "codex.cfg" file and open it, with Notepad. Look for the line "Persona", and change the CODEX there, to another name. Save the changes to the codex.cfg file, and exit Notepad. Re-start the game and now see if your new name shows up. Smile

Sorry about that; we have not gotten to really analyze & tinker with the new CODEX offline-files. That aside, I'm not familiar with this mod (I was told about it just a few days ago by another user), so there is a chance you need to change something with the mod files too.

As for the CODEX-files, my guess would be you need to change something in the OrangeEmu.dll-files, but then again, I myself have not really found the opportunity to look into that.

But about this:

What I do know about the mod is, that apparently it's recommended that you ONLY play with people who are on the same game patch level as you, and who have the exact same DLC as you. And since I don't think that there are many people out there who have all DLC on their legit Sims 4 games, you're more likely going to end up with people who also have gotten these pirated Sims 4 games?

Furthermore, I'm assuming you're mostly going to play with people you at least vaguely know already, instead of complete strangers? Maybe there is a chance they won't mind you having a pirated Sims 4.

Of course that is not a solution to your problem, but until we have found a more permanent way to go about this, in my opinion the question about "what if other people see my cracked game"...becomes a little less relevant in light of the above statements. Needless to say, if you intend to invite people from Facebook/Twitter/Reddit/Discord and similarly fancy platforms, they will be able to draw a connection to your social media profile(s) and the fact that you use a CODEX-version...so be careful of who you invite or play with.

Edit: maybe we could make a post about this mod on the Forum here as well, and provide a space for the people wanting to play with like-minded others (a.k.a. people who have gotten the same pirated versions).

Yes, starting a forum for it would be so awesome, thanks. I guess we can mark this as solved.
