I've just finished creating a singleplayer level with the Lord of the Land as the objective, However, he has the name 'Michael' applied to him. I was wondering if thier was any way to change his name. Is it possible?

No. You could, I suppose, in theory, give him a set name ID like what King Reginald or the three princes have. But unless you know what all the name IDs are, it'd be kind of pointless. Additionally, it would have to be saved with Global Data, and that might get messy, depending on the kind of level editing you perform.

Don't know if you have, but you can script your map to use a campaigns variable, in doing so, your lord of the lands name will change to that campaigns lord, I use this method to create my own version of a campaign to how I think it should play out.

It is also a very cool way to get your friends or family who may have played it to give it a go, even if said person you're sharing it with doesn't know how to play, you can mess around with the level 1 variables to create your very own tutorial! I did this with my dad, who hadn't played it for quite some time and he very much enjoyed playing my version of the tutorial mission :)

Alternatively, you can use the RC3 version of the DK2 Editor to name the Lord, as it is given as an actual option when you access the level variables.
