Is it possible to rename an object?

 

I would like to rename the components of Helm's Deep and Minas Tirith (walls, gate houses, doors etc.) so that when you hover your mouse pointer over them in game, you get the desired name instead of the default one. The image below depicts what I want to change.

 

I only need the changes to occur when playing a specific map.

Object NameOfObjectYouWantToChange
     DisplayName     =     Name Displayed on Hover
END

Save as map.ini to the same folder as the map you desire to change the name in. EA Helm's probably already has a map.ini file so just open that.

Yeah this works. Thanks. :)

 

However... it changes the name to MISSING: 'name'

Is there any way to fix that?

As far as I know, no. You can change the name of upgrades and powers by adding a controlbar tag, 'DisplayName = CONTROLBAR:Name' then making a map.str file in which you define the tag's text, but that won't work for objects so you can't add custom display names on objects without having the 'MISSING:' tag show up. However, you can use the name of other objects if there are any which fits, those are be called 'OBJECT:Name'.
