How to avoid showing my account name when chatting?

Hi,

When I chat in a lobby on Battle.net, my real account name is always displayed first, followed by the actual account name I'm using in the gateway.

For example, if my real account name is "sethmachine" and my US West account name is "foobar", everytime I type this shows up in any lobby:

sethmachine (foobar): why is my real name showing?!

Most people who type I only see their gateway account. How can I make it so only "foobar" shows when I type?



None.

I think it only shows your Blizzard account name to people that you've added as a friend through the Blizzard app. Of course, you'll always see it there, but I don't think anyone else sees it unless they're your friend.



Memes gather, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the memer on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of memes. I pledge my life and honor to the Meme's Watch, for this meme and all the memes to come.

What dem0n says is true, I see the realID of b.net app friends and no one else when chatting on SC.

what does a spec sheet look like

Suicidal Insanity shouted: I had thought it loads it from the MPQs and parses it, so I was working on re-implmenting that with the MPQ code changes, and then noticed that it does grab the MPQ interface but then ignores it :X
nice
