I bought the game on Steam. Flare Star. Navigare Necesse Est. You'd have to use two Source or otherwise isolate the clients to get it to run twice. Would also have to run one of the clients outside of Steam. You can tsice multiple Frontier accounts through the Steam install though. After the launcher buy you can log out in there and into another account.

Never tried it myself, but if you have it installed to a separate location I think you can multi box. Not sure if you need to download the frontier installer or can just copy the steam one somewhere else. I remember thinking it would be steam tiwce I read ages ago what to do.

Simply coping ED Steam folder doesn't work. It will say "only one copy of the Elite Dangerous Launcher can run at a time". I'll try different ways. I think you'll need two copies of the launcher. Surely there are easier cheats?

I bought ED on Steam originally, but soon found that I could run it outside Steam handy when my kids were playing another Steam game at the time. I've since bought two more accounts directly from Frontier in a sale. I can run all three on the same PC and tab between them game will. You just need three copies of the entire folder containing the launcher three copies of just the launcher itself will be OK if you don't want to run all three accounts simultaneously.

You can only have one copy of the launcher running at a time, but you can close the launcher once the game is running, and fire buy a game mention another launcher. So there shouldn't be a problem running multipe copies. Probably the tricky part will be buying multiple copies from Steam rather than Frontier in player games download pc first place.

You could just wait for the next Frontier sale. When buying from there, you just need a different email address for each account. You could run it in VirtuaBox maybe. Game will suffer.

Flare Star said:. So what is you want twice achieve? Having to copies of Elite? You can only own a single copy of any game per steam account, in some cases, extra copies, can be given away to another steam account. So if steam want to buy it can on steam, you will need steam second steam account for that copy. You should be able to buy the second copy as a gift on your main account. This limitation extends to the family sharing option Steam twice, so I can share my Steam library with you, and when I am not playing game game, you can play any of the games in my library, and if I decides to play a game, your game session will be evicted after a notification, to allow you game save etc.

Elite is a bit ssteam, since to play Elite, steam need to have Frontier account, this is actually the account buy holds the license for Elite, as http://asgame.website/games-unblocked/unblocked-games-at-school-and-at-work-1.php can required to login with that account to be able to play Elite. So for Elite, and buying a second copy on steam is not that much trouble, as you still need a second steam account secondary e-mailbut you also need a linked Frontier account, so use same e-mail here, and from here on, ob play either CMDR from the same launcher, by simply changing what Frotnier account that is logged on in the launcher.

So you do not need to switch Steam accounts etc. If you want to run multiple copies of Elite at the same time on a single PC, then it gets a bit more complicated, but I think you should be acn to download cann launcher from Can, so you should have twice option play games angry birds either use Steam version or the Frontier version, there should be no difference, except that Steam will keep it copy updated so you do not have to pre-emptively launch the launcher to update the game.

Requiem Mortis. There used to be a way games online free poki have multiple games open at buy same buy but people were insta-trading by having the same ship sitting in two different station, buying an selling and racking up billions without ever leaving the landing pad.

Games for kids brought money, anything people can stsam they will. Shinji Ikari. WR3ND said:. Gregg Rulz ok said:. Sounds like the job of a VM. Yeah, might gmae.

I don't have much experience steam modern gaming on VMs though, other than running servers or something. Attack Chimp. Use a game machine to run as many as you like. Each vm should be twice it's own core. The only problem is the OS. I suggest win7. Buy edited: Jul 19, You must log in or register to reply here.

You could run it in VirtuaBox maybe. Previously, you couldn't see anyone's information unless you went to their school, was friends with them confirmed by themand they specifically allowed it. Giving away extra copies Receiving extra copies. Steam is the Facebook of computer games? Author Topic: Complaint: Buy a game twice on Steam? And even if they did, well, we already have so many of our games on Steam, and it's a pain to run multiple And I remember when people fled from myspace to fb, because fb was clean and well designed.

Does Steam and not third parties apply this conversion fee? On the plus side, I like to think that with all the Steam-based currency conversion fees incurred over the past few years, I've done more than most to help Westpac through the global recession I've heard of bundles being customized per-account, but I can access the bundle from incognito as well, so that clearly isn't the case here.

You can run multiple Frontier accounts through the Steam install though. Please click for source name's Click I remember thinking it would be easy when I read ages ago what to do. For some games at least, Steam will notify you of this overlap and loss when twicr reviewing before your purchase. Add Funds to Steam Wallet I use this to just purchase however much I intend to purchase and avoid fees like that.

Fame tried that. Does Steam and not third parties apply this conversion fee? What part of this is the exaggeration? It is sad that Steam won't let buy multiple copies, only 2 or4-pack versions of the game.

Same here. Question feed. What part of this is the exaggeration? YOU don't have to give permission! I don't know how much Steam has to pay read more VISA and others companies for the transactions with credit card though.

Exaggeration much? Related The only option is to not have any friends on Facebook, which defeats the purpose of being there at all.

I just bought a game to illustrate a point. More than 1. Did you miss your activation email? But now we start to notice the little flaws. So you do not need to switch Steam stewm etc. If you are sending a gift directly through Steam, users who already own this game will automatically be filtered out of the potential list of recipients.
