Several avatars

Recommended Posts

Dear friends! 

Is it possible to play with several avatars of different accounts on the same computer? 

 

Thanks for your help and have fun!

It is possible.

Sign in as your usual account then re-click the desktop icon for what ever browser you use (Firestorm for example). That opens up another sign in page. Just enter the alt you wish to have join your main and have at it.

Beware, such practice can and will over work your puter drives and fan, possibly overheating.

It is not recommended unless you have a top of the line machine with appropriate software that can handle the extra work.

A dramatic loss in fps is much more likely than lava streaming out of the computer case. ^^

I find that running two viewers on my laptop works reasonably.

My old laptop struggles with two viewers, but it works well enough for taking photos...……..rezzing can be slow though!

My computer is a fairly decent 2 year old gaming desktop and it can handle two avatars logged in at once. If I try three, the fps drops to "unusable". You might manage three if you have a new, high-end gaming rig.

All 4 are me on one computer.

Open Preferences.  Go to the Advanced tab.  From there, check the box next to Allow Multiple Viewers

All of you are way overdressed!

BOTS 

Having more than one account does not necessarily make them a bot. People make alt accounts for various reasons.

I have an alt I use as a banker to store lindens that belong to a group.  This keeps them from getting mixed up with my personal funds.  When I need to transfer lindens between us I log her in with the light weight client Radegast.  Radegast doesn't put any strain on my computer at all.

I use two different viewer on my laptop, the SL viewer and firestorm. It is usefull to have two avatar logged in at the same time especially for management.

BOTS!

You can also use like a personal bot from smartbot. It uses one account to keep it permanently logged in without having to run it on your computer. It can be programmed and you have multiple choice of add-on available depending the bot you will choose. But if you use a bot, be sure the account has no payment info saved lol!

On SL viewer:  ME-Preference-advanced-Allow multiple viewer 

What is that?

Im not talking about having more then 1 account, im talking about the endless stream of bots on multiple sims.  

Oh!  The OP was asking about running more than one account on a computer.  If you would like to talk about boting, maybe we could start a new thread.

Or are you saying using bots is a way to achieve what they asked?
