abbreviate player names in hud

Can you abbreviate the player names as they appear in the hud to only three characters?

In the Statistic Repository search for "Player Short".

Those stats shorten it to 5 characters – if you want to change it 3 you can change the Format Expression of the stat.

The "how do I add a stat?" link at the top of the Get More page explains how to import a stat into PT3. Once the stat has been imported you will be able to add to your HUD (although if the HUD is running you will need to stop the import first).

Great. Was wondering about this myself yesterday.
Really should start looking into those custom stats... seems awesome. Is it possible to add an ellipsis (...) if the player name gets truncated ? So 'Jan50' would show as 'Jan50' but 'MegaDonkPlayer' would show up as 'MegaD...' ?

That should be doable by editing the format expression of the stat to include something like + format("...").

Hi,

This does not seem to work for player names that consist only of numbers since apparently the trim function performs a format_number when the first argument is a number, i.e. when the player name is a number, it shows the whole number with a komma after the first n digits instead of only showing the first n digits.

I looked at the documentation, but I cannot find how I can easily solve this. Could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Set the decimals to -1 in the statistics properties for that stat when it's in the HUD and that should fix it I think.
