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.

      My friend just managed to craft full leather clothing plus primitive weapons such as the spear and the bow. We also had lots of fresh chicken breasts and decided to cook and then this happened.

      In the making for over 2 years, we present the best of the 300 episode DayZ series compilation in 4K.
       
      This video takes you through the evolution of Arma 2 Dayz from the first few days of Vanilla DayZ mod to the rise and fall of empires in DayZ Epoch Mod.
       
      It features 4 hours of footage from the 70 hour series.  It took over a month to make this and 4 days to upload and about 7 attempts to encode taking around 35 hours each attempt before a file was rendered successfully. In the attempt to encode this file, I had an OS harddrive complete mechanical failure due to the two years of heavy usage.  300TB of total footage recorded was based on the avg file size of a 1 hour uncompressed video. The file was originally 4:20:00 but it is a known problem to youtube that for some unknown reason long videos are having the end portion of the video cut off.  The file was 97GB.  Ive probably spent far more than 2-3k hours on this series recording and editing footage. I've spent 136 hours in the last month making the last 4 episodes alone.
