Open the Game.exe file with a hex editor, search for (ASCII String) "%s's_game" and replace it with anything you like; non-alphabetical/numerical characters aren't allowed with the exception of _ and ' and the length can't be longer than what it originally was or it'll cause errors when players with a long nickname try to host a game. "%s" will be replaced by the nickname of the player that hosts a game with the modified game.exe file.

Key Words: #Tutorials #TiberianSun #Firestorm #ExeHack #HexEdit

Oh... so you actually posted it then xD

I would recommend you keep %s too, or loads of MyModOwns instead of Hyper_NewMod would suck.

Indeed, though I would put the name of your mod first to make it more noticeable in between the regular games hosted on XWIS ("DTA_%s" -> "DTA_Bittah" for example Rolling Eyes).
