****  Note you CAN NOT sign up for TRANSFER during NAME CHANGE TIME****

---------------------------
**Name Change is Broken (and not worked correctly for many years) - use it at your own risk.**
Supposedly Name Change works only for names with illegal characters in it, but, we have past reports of the system just taking your credits and not changing it... and that is after having to change the code to see the back up name text boxes (see post #2)
But I do not know which lines the people making reports changed or if they have to edit them at all, so let me know if you get it to work!

*Name change time is always first.  Because, Characters with illegal (text) characters in their names can not change servers.
 
-----------------------------------------------------
** "Help the others to Transfer" **

Put your friend's account name / account you want to give credits to... in the "Account name" box.
---------------------------------

** Known Transfer BUG - CAUTION -**

There is a bug where if you have a character already standing in one of the 4 slots (where you do character selection on the dock) on the server that that the character being transferred too... the transferred character will not show and you have to delete the character standing in that spot to see your transferred one.

Transfer warning: before the transfer date, be sure to do the initial pull down of any items, free lunch or IM at the warehouse or you will not be able to claim them with your tranferred character.
-------------------------------

The following link will take you to both the name change and the character immigration page (They are the same page)


The "IMMIGRATION AND NAME CHANGE PAGE" will currently take you to the name change sign up.  
The link on the "IMMIGRATION AND NAME CHANGE PAGE" to will change to transfer server sign up when it is time for Server Transfer sign up.



Costs
If you want to transfer a character, you need to pay 1200 credits.
If you want to change character name, you need to pay 500 credits.



Credits
are earned from buying non-sale IM items or can be "made" by exchanging forum karma into credits.
karma exchange page: http://vc.igg.com/bbs_credit/index.php

Karma WAS earned (Prior to March 2016) in the old forum by participating in forum events or given by moderators as a reward to those who had written helpful posts and/or guides.

Character Transfer Service Available
http://vc.igg.com/news/8477/Character_Transfer_Service_Available.html




Nov 3, 2017


Character Transfer Service for March is now available, visit the immigration page to submit your application, new immigration rules have been added: During the transfer, if backup names (optional character names players supplied) can’t be used, a random number will be attached to the name to distinguish it.
If you have any question about the updated immigration rules, check this announcement  for more detailed info.
ServerImmigration Status
ColumbusAllowed to transfer in and transfer out
Magellen & Marco PoloAllowed to transfer in and transfer out
Dagama & James CookAllowed to transfer in and transfer out
Zheng HeAllowed to transfer in and transfer out

After much consideration, we have decided to implement the following changes to the service, as below.
1. Should your character name contain illegal characters or symbols, you will need to apply for a name change before applying for a change in server. Please keep in mind that only alphanumeric figures will be accepted in character names.
2. Should your character name contain illegal characters or symbols, the name change must be applied for and approved at least ONE (1) week before you apply for a server change.
3.  A name change can be applied for in place of another character with illegal symbols in his/her character name; however, it requires confirmation from that party before we can proceed.
4. An administrative fee of 500 Credits will be charged for performing a name change. The change in name will take place right after the next scheduled maintenance.
Note: Your character will automatically leave his/her current guild and fleet upon a successful name change. It is advised to prepare beforehand to avoid unnecessary losses.
Click here to Follow the below steps to change your character name or help others with changing their character names.

How to fix the NAME CHANGE PAGE  Former character names (info entry lines) problem


USE NAME CHANGE AT YOUR OWN RISK... WE HAVE REPORTS IT DOES NOT WORK.  ..... The system may just take your credits and not change your name.


Yes there is a problem with textboxes.
The line where you enter your "Former Character Name, Back up Name 1 and Back up Name 2" does not show.
So, you cannot enter your name. If you look at the source code, you can see that the boxes are still there, but their visibility is set to hidden. (display: none).




Steps on how to make the "Former Character Name" line visible:
UPDATED 11/12/2017
Original fix found by DSOFA has been updated by me Eleftheria.



Here are step by step instructions;

open the immigration page link >
I want to transfer page; http://vc.igg.com/immigration/emigrat2.php?at=0



1)  Double or triple left click the words "Back up Character name" until the phrase is highlighted in blue.



2) Right click and choose  "inspect element" (while the words are highlighted blue)
the white lower half will appear....;
scroll down just a little bit more in the white area so you can see all 4 of the faded lines





3)  Double click the small box with 3 dots (ellipsis) in it - in faded line 4, (to expand and see the code written there)




4) Now mouse over (or double click) the words " element" and "display: none" (circled)




A check box will appear (when the area is moused over or "element" is double clicked);





5) un-check that box and it will become strike through text ( a line crosses out the text)





and the code on the left changes, and the boxes appear at top in the form:

Hurray!  The line to enter a back up name shows!!!



6) Left click the "x" at the top right of the white editor area to exit the editor.
And then enter all the information and click "submit".

7) Make sure you click the "radio" button / box in front of the the words "Former Character Name"  (Otherwise you will get your current name with a random number attached, not the name you typed in.)




*If you leave the page you will have to un-hide the text boxes again.

.........................................................................................................................




What you should try to make it look like: (plus click to check the box in front of "Former character name" )



How it looked after I changed line 4  and before entering names;




Again, PLEASE let me know if this Works or Not!!


Last June (2017), and this November (2017) I was not able to enter a "former character name" no matter what I did...
But I do not have an illegal character in my name... and supposedly only names w/ illegal (asci) characters can be changed.

Character Immigration/ Transfer

Announcement About New Character Transfer Applications
http://vc.igg.com/news/2626/Announcement_About_New_Character_Transfer_Applications.html

Dec 9, 2010



Good news! The modifications to the Character transfer application have been completed. Here's the details,
1.The process that helps friends transfer their characters has been improved.
You are now able to help friends transfer their characters without knowing their passwords. Enter your friends' account name on the character transfer page and select 'original server' and 'target server' , then your friend will receive a notice for confirmation on the immigration page. When your friend confirms the notice and completes the info required, they can then apply for character transfer.
2. Name Validity has been applied to backup names entered for your character on the new server.
If the backup name is already in use on the target server, you'll receive a notice to rename.
3. Name Restrictions have been applied to backup names you enter for your character on the new server.
If the backup name contains invalid codes, you'll receive a notice to rename.
4. The Character Cap now applies to the number of characters you want to transfer.
Each player can have up to 4 characters on one server. If the number of characters you wish to transfer (plus any characters you may already have on the target server) exceeds 4, you'll receive a notice to reduce the amount of characters to 4.
Also, to guarantee a smooth gaming environment and avoid problems arising from frequent character info changes, the officials have decided to control the immigration frequency, former regular immigration during Tuesday maintenance will be cancelld, the officials will announce the exact time for immigration on the website each time.
The most recent time available to apply for Character Transfer is December 10th to December 13th EST (GMT-5).
Character Transfers will occur during the server maintenance on December 14th

Your previous transfer information will show below where this picture is cut off on the actual page.

SERVER TRANSFER
When transferring servers the back up names (info entry lines) will not show until you pick a server to transfer FROM.
AND, the lines will only show if you choose a server you have characters on with the account you are currently signed into.

BIG point to keep making , Be certain to claim all you left in WH prize taking as essentially you are no longer the old owner after transfer and many lose all that was saved .

 READ everything  you can and plan  your transfer carefully , even those who are vetran players have had issues as the system rules or new glitches are hard to keep track of . So be careful and even if you think you know everything about transfers it pays to just brush up .

 Good luck and hope you enjoy the trip !
