    Title: Silver Mini Automaton Bugged?
    Reproducible? Yes
    Blocker? No
    Details: Changing name does not alter prompt in dialogue.
    Steps to Reproduce: Use the following test script.

    This is a test script.
    ->START
    ==START
    Welcome to the Beginning
    +Hello World
    ->A
    +Good Bye
    ->B
    ==A
    Why hello!
    ->START
    ==B
    ->END

    [​IMG]

    Note the name in the prompt should be Sparky, and isn't.

    ALSO, in lesson 2 of Conversationalist, A Tutorial | Shroud of the Avatar Forum, the following statement is made:
    "The limits are, 1000 characters for the free Conversationalist, and 5000 for the in-game Crown Shop Conversationalist. This includes special characters like spaces, tabs, and CR/LF (Carriage Return and Linefeed)"
    Sparky was purchased in the Crown Shop. Nowhere in the description was there a statement about the number of script characters available. I found the limit for Sparky to be 2,000 characters. I guess this was changed? (I've been away.) I suggest stating the number of script characters available to avoid mistakes.

    I renamed it the same as my first. If it matters it's in a different POT. Silverdale Market on docks.
    I also tried resetting it back to default name and it did not change. Tried a few different names and all still show
    <ENTITY WITH NO NAME: PetHome_Automaton_Mini_Silver(Clone)6122f76ca8b4cb0495a7731a>

    I think this is item related not PC or system.
    Thanks

    verified. i do not have a silver one to test, but it seems the brass one has the same bug and so all of them should be checked.

    good, whether or not the lot owner is present might matter
