XF 1.1 How to change maximum username length

We would like to lower the username length.

the forum is connected to a gameserver which has a maximum username length of 12, and since alot of people register with more characters in their username they can't login.

Could someone tell me how to do this

Go to Admin CP > Options > User Registration

Towards the bottom you will see the username length options.

You can set a minimum length and a maximum length. Just set the maximum length to 12.

EDIT: Ninja'd by the best :)
