I'm making a game where the main characters have default names but can be changed by the player when they are first introduced into the game, like in your average RPG. I think/hope it should be relativly simple, how is it done?
Sure, you could use the ini file, I don't see why not. And it's not like a character's name is exactly sensitive information should the user open the file up and look around. It might be cool, you could always edit your name in case you were farting around and typed it in as "dA_dEmOn_No1!"
But they'd probably just change it to Maxim, one of the most overused RPG names in all of history.
"Del Duio has received 0 trophies. Click here to see them all."
"To be a true ninja you must first pick the most stealthy of our assorted combat suits. Might I suggest the bright neon orange?"

Keep the names in global strings, and ONLY get them out of the INIs when you load up the game (just store them into the global strings). Else, you might alter the INI in-game and immediately affect gameplay, and that is not what you might want.
