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 Meeting Game - Hosted By: BarelyInfected
      By camcantrun
      We received a note, on this note was a location and a mission. Our location happened to be  a lone green house south west of Gorka, and our mission, to form a place of sanctuary for the weary at Pavlovo Military Base.
      My life led me into a lot of ups, and a few downs. Life isn't always about the highs and lows though, it's about the in between. I hope you all enjoy and are having a wonderful day where ever you are.
