    Special Characters in Name (not just accents)

    Right, bear with me as I'm not entirely sure how it is DONE, I just know that it is possible.

    I am currently trying to determine whether it is a hack or just classic exploiting.

    I have tried from the character create window, and it does NOT work...

    However, my theory is that if you purchase a name change via Cartel Coins, and attempt to put the credit symbol (Alt+0162) or Cartel Coin symbol (Alt+0182) into your name... or even the block, I think it is Alt+0164 (somebody confirm this, not sure off the top of my head) then it should work, and they should appear legitimately in your character name.

    Like I said, this is not confirmed, but I have SEEN it ingame, so it is POSSIBLE.

    Curious as to whether anyone can get it working, I don't have the coins to try it, and quite like my accent and symbol-free names tbh.

    Interesting to know if other symbols work, I have seen ? and credit symbol so far.

    Also, they only seem to be after a space in the name... not sure if this is coincidence, or the only way to do it... screenshot inc.

    Another way to do this would be using something like WPE and just modifying the packet on the fly.
