    Hey guys,

    When I was reading this forum, I noticed that people were asking for the ability to change their username. I was looking through some of the files for TTR, and I think I found the file you must edit to change your username. Follow these steps and you should be able to change your username.

    1) SSH into you iPod touch.
    2) Navigate to var>root>Media>TTR
    3) Open the file located in this directory called "prefs.plist"
    4) Scroll down to the bottom of this file until you find where it says,

    "</array>
    <key>artistupdatetime</key>
    <integer>1200277219</integer>
    <key>username</key>
    <string>USERNAME HERE</string>"

    5) Note: Where it says "USERNAME HERE" above, that just means that your current username will be displayed there.
    6) Replace "USERNAME HERE" with your new username.
    7) Save the file and play TTR.

    I don't think so. All that this does is modify what name the iPod identifies itself as when uploading scores to the server. It probably does not re-send scores when the name is changed. Also, does anyone know how to disable the spinning effect that is put on the stars? I would like to make it so that they do not spin.

    I've got no clue, but it's got to be somewhere in one of those files. I'd search for something similar to "Spin" or rotate" and see what comes up.
