Hello. I was wondering if it is possible to find the folder where the default profile is, I would like to rename it. I have created a new profile, but it is kind of annoying in the profile screen to see an unused profile named 'user01'. I would like to know where I can edit this profile. Please help.

Do it in game from the main menu under Player Profile.

Then whatever you name it to you'll have your config files under Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\YourNewName

No, I want to EDIT THE DEFAULT PROFILE, not create a new one. I don't want a random unused profile with a random name. I've heard that you can do it.

I guess you could change your windows username? There's nothing under the default profile for name, it uses your Window's login name.

I've tried that, didn't change the profiles name. I really don't want to have to download 25 GB again, I'm almost out of broadband.

You can not rename that default profile cause it takes the computer name automatically.
Just create an extra profile and give that the name you want.

I really don't see why having 2 profiles of which one you dont use is such a big problem?
BTW, 25 gb? Which site is hosting such a big version of the game?

Steam with all Expansions. And a crap ton of mods.

Steam is like 10 - 15 GB? The rest is custom content, just back that up elsewhere and place it back after you did the (unnecassary) reinstall. But thats my opinion.

Really, as far as I know the default profile can not be changed, many people have asked this in the past on the BI forums and the answer was always the same to my knowledge.
If anyone does know a work around other than those described above..........post it :-)
