Two accounts, one computer/Mac?

 Anyone ever had any luck running two accounts/games on the same PC/Mac?  Specifically, a Mac.

 Would love to be able to tow my own AT around.

Works great on a pc .... i assume a mac as well. You just have to get used to managing sound because it can easily get quite confusing.

Not sure you can with mac.... @SCKING might be able to answer.

With PC though the only limiter is your machine. In testing I've had 5 spawned in on this rig at the same time.

for the mac you have to make a duplicate of the app and then you can run two accounts

I run multi accounts all the time... But like others have said the ingame sound will make you go slowly insane.

Dont forget to set CPU affinity to different cores for each game instance.

Sound you can control via your sound mixer, so long as you use the same sound device as you've defaulted to windows.

As to setting affinity.... Might help? Never have myself.

On a Mac, duplicate the WWIIOL app.  Need to rename the second copy.    The sound for both applications can get annoying.  I think you can mute one account/Application.

 

Both accounts run fine as long as they have distinct names.

 

My iMac Info:

MacOS High Sierra

iMac (27-inch, Late 2013)

MAC OS:  10.13.6  (High Sierra)

Processor:  3.4 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory:  8 GB RAM

Graphics:  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2 GB

 Thanks everyone, great info. I’ll get into it tonight. I’ll take a look at the sound thing too as I don’t want to just dump the truck, I’m going to need to get back if for some odd reason I stay alive. ;)

in the game instance you prefer not to hear, before spawning, click prefs tab, pick sound, drag down volume slider

It's all about how much RAM you have. On my old iMac (2010) had I 12 GB RAM. That was enough to run 3 WWIIOL clients. When I tired 4 clients did they all CTD in circa 10 minutes from overheating.

3 clients runs very stable on an iMac. A third client is great to give your gun some infantry support.

And as you probably know already do you easily swap between the clients with cmd-Tab.

I use the windows volume mixer (near the clock)
active and disable the sound of the account that I do not want to hear, even being on a mission...

WWIIOL uses about 1.5 GB of system RAM, figure that Windows OS uses about 2.5 GB, so just multiple this by the number of accounts you are running and your available RAM.

So with 8 GB RAM you can run realistically 3; it also helps to not have more accounts than CPU cores.
