Alright I have a question,

    I recently built my first PC, and of course I wanted to tryout DayZ standalone. I started playing and I'm almost completely geared up. Now, I feel bad because my brother would like to play too but he cant because I cant find a way to have two different characters, and wouldn't like to lose all my gear :c

 

Is there any way you could have two different profiles on DayZ, with different gear and everything? if there is, how do you do it?

 

Thanks.

Steam family sharing.

Have him log into his account on your PC while DayZ is installed, then when he tries to run it you'll have to give him permission.

 

In-game, you can't have 2 profiles.

I'd like to see that addition, that way I can play with my friends with one character and do my own thing with another.

Set up another steam account for your brother and buy another copy, worked for me.

Although having 2 profiles in game would be cool can cause alot of abuse regarding gear hoarding.

For Ex; One profile hoards good loot, drops it somewhere on the server on the ground

            second profile would log in and take the loot off of the ground and voila.

solution:  Make it a hassle to do so.  Don't allow the profiles to log into the same server within a certain time frame.

      About Us
      The Green Beret is an international Dayz clan, started in the December of 2014, devoted to the aid of others and look to those who cannot contend for themselves. To be apart of a larger community and a greater camaraderie with other people is what we strive for. 
      We look for people who will actively play and communicate well in Teamspeak and on Dayz. We are also a hero clan, meaning that we strive to avoid clashes and hope to attain accord with others. However, this does not mean that we will hesitate to KOS in tense situations, or to always approach others in a friendly manner. 
      We will provide you with a simplified version of military structure and callings to provide maximum support for each player, providing you with training and exercises you need to be successful in the clan. We will have events Friday or Saturday making a full loot run around the northern/western side of Chernarus map if time provides, or just general clan improvements and fun. 
       
      The main game that we play is Dayz Standalone, however, we do also play games such as Arma, Dayz Mod, War Thunder, Rocket League, Heroes and Generals, Counter Strike, Gmod, and more.
