Account switching
« on: April 02, 2019, 12:40:25 am »
Is there anything you could do to help with switching game accounts?

With the characters split across several accounts, after having 2 chars online and attempting to switch to another character I'm getting to char selection screen and then disconnected on login attempt. This takes several minutes.
[Just read the petition sticky, seems this is in the wrong area.]

Hello Mr. Nedush!
Sorry about the issue.

The accounts at the character select screen count as accounts online so if there are 2 accounts at character select, it won't let you log a "third". I know it can suck :(

Hopefully I understood the issue - if not, please let me know.

BTW, great to see you!

Hi, thanks for looking into it. It happens when having the client open twice at a time.

Like:
- having 2 chars online
- logging one out
- closing this client
- starting the client again
- logging in to a different game account
- server select, char select
- after char selection this account gets disconnected

It stays like this for minutes. I seemed to have more luck when shutting down both clients fully but this is not reliably successful.

You can consider it low priority since i seem to be the only one facing this. Though, it messes up the strategy of having a porter on a separate account quite a bit  ;)

Yes it seems to work alright with only 3 accounts.
