Dual Logging

Yay. Now let's hope that it doesn't break something totally unrelated. Like zoning out of Unredeemed temple in Adonis while wearing DChest and at least 2 symbiants.

Thoughts? I'm sure I'm not the only person happy to see that confirmation window gone.

It's nice for all those who do duallog and it's nice for duallogging live and test server.

Haven't they always accepted it and made the launcher support it???

Why else the notification/warning when starting a second/third/fourth/n client, not to mention the ability to connect with more than one account from the same IP?

Don't know if they fixed it, but you used to be able to log into different servers with the same account at the same time.

It was already accepted, they just removed a pointless warning message that didn't apply to anyone with a computer less than ten years old

Well what are you gonna do? Unless the population of this game suddenly grew to a few million, the way the game works almost completely necessitates it to get much of anything done.

Has there been any talk of dual-logging, and the new engine?

To dual log in AoC you have to have 2 different install folders to be able to do it.

This change is worth nothing. It only saves 1 click = 1-2 seconds

What I would really like to see is ability to duallog from the same account !

Make it possible only from the same computer/IP to stop 2 people playing on 1 account.

This change would really be a huge improvement because very often I have a situation when I need certain buff and I have a character to cast it but unfortunatelly it is on the same account.

We could do this in 2001, it was fixed

And the change is worth a lot. Consider, 1-2 seconds pr. player pr. number of logins pr. day pr. year.

A small, but appreciated difference. Every so often I forget it shows up and wonder where my instance is. Re "What a shame" if I couldn't dual/triple/quadruple log for buffs, trading stuff, etc I would be gone. Which would really be a shame because this is a great game. But the annoyance/timewasting factor would just be too high.

The ability to dual log one account would be great, now that I have a paid account - took me forever to find an NT for NS the other day when I could have just logged mine if it wasn't on the same account. But that could be way too subject to abuse - maybe requiring them to be on the same computer would work, but still, that would be pushing it....

Of course I've never done this, just sayin :x

It's just a small quality of life change. I don't really see how people can possibly complain about it, but I guess I'll always be proven wrong when I believe that someone can't complain about something.
