i was asked what my race was, and also I chose...but then I managed to exit without setup a name, gender...anything else. So now I"m a dude called "Prisoner". I"d dislike to pat the whole game with such a lame name. Am ns going come be offered an opportunity, choose in Oblivion, to change these things again at some point, or do I have to start over, or...?

Me too. I hate being dubbed prisoner. I regulated to choose a race and a sex, even change my features, however I am known as prisioner.
As far as i know, the only way to adjust your character"s details after the early setup is through the console, which is only obtainable on the computer version.

You have the right to use the /showracemenu command to change the details. See below for a listing of every console commands.

I have actually played skyrim and so much I haven"t had actually the option to adjust my surname or race. Ns don"t think there will be a way... However we will certainly see.

In the computer version, /showracemenu operated fine for me, and I successfully changed my illustration (eye-color, mainly), there is no affecting my skills, level, or anything choose that (I recall in Oblivion there to be a relatively convoluted way to do it -- this is much easier). I"ve heard an altering your gyeongju is a poor idea though.

I"ve heard there"s a converter to readjust your savegame native XBox 360 come PC and also back. If girlfriend can find one of those, and also have a girlfriend (or recognize someone online) through the pc version, you can give them the savegame, run the console command, readjust your name, then transform it ago to XBox 360.

Seeing together it"s a single-player game, i really don"t see any kind of tos issues with a converter (you deserve to supposedly execute this come redo your perks, or provide yourself a exchange rate health, etc., together well). However, having never watched or offered it, I"ve no idea if it could corrupt your savegame later.

Another possibility can be to hex-edit the data top top the XBox 360 variation of the savefile from her computer. Ns can"t uncover my character name this way, however someone better at that sort of thing might have the ability to find the (editing the name on the an initial line the the record just changes the text displayed on the save/load screes, no the name of the player container). Your best luck in that instance would it is in to do the new name eight characters long, or there can be formatting issues.
