2 Different Profiles?

7 posts in this topic

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.

      The apocalypse has finally fallen upon Chernarus as plaque has spread across the land. Society has fallen to the rising crisis as only few survivors are left stranded defending themselves from the hordes of zombies and other survivors. Either scavenging across the land to towns, cities, and abondon military bases for gear and supplies. Many things can be found by scavenging but there are others one has to learn to craft in order to survive.
      If you are up for a challenging environment through PVP or PVE this server has what you need. We are ever developing for recipes and crafting items to make this scernio as realistic as possible.
      Fighting to survive is a must and one can not be scared to get their hands dirty in order to live.

      First of all, check this reddit Thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/dayz/comments/767m9m/winter_is_coming/
      To be plain and simple, Dynamic Weather is kinda of a must for DayZ in the mind of many, many people... It is something that would add greatly to the game as a survival game and most players would be astonished about it being implemented in the game, so I ask, fully knowing how hard it would be to code something like this:
      Why not put Dynamic Weather in game?
      DayZ dev team has since a long time been one of the most audacious and persistent devs I've ever seen in the game industry, even tho a lot of people take a piss on the game, I still insist to everyone saying crap: "You wait, and you'll see that this game is going to be a beast."
      You guys have done a new engine entirely, so as a plea from the entire community, add this feature in the near future, just like the overhaul and revitalization of vegetation in .62, do it, as Eugen usually says: "The only way out of this, is creating an insanely good game." (or something along this lines).
      I believe in you all devs!
      Thanks u/zombieland78 for creating the reddit topic!
