Two people, one computer - is this ok?


My daughter recently started playing the game after getting green light from me. She is mostly using the same computer as we are waiting for laptop coming back from service. We obviously don’t play at the same time but she plays when the PC is free using her steam account.

Is that ok?

We are on the same server but there is no interaction and the accounts are never logged in from one pc at the same time.

Also going forward will I be ok to bus her through dungeons etc when there is a second computer rolling? Obviously two people playing doing their actions on their own from a different machine, but the ip address will obviously be from the same home network.

Since it is AGS, we dont know if it is okay but i see no reason.
Because if they say it isnt allowed that means no lan cafe’s can play this game? which imo would be stupid

I’ve read old posts but it’s kind of vague so decided to ask. It says one account per person which is exaclty what is happening here, but it’s on one pc.

I see no reason as well unless they mistake it as one person having multiple accounts.

That’s what we are trying to avoid :smiley:

Hey there, @Frozenshade.

I understand you have questions about using the same computer with separate Steam accounts.

Our CM Roxx, shared an statement about this some time ago:

Besides, I went ahead and checked some information from Steam as well. Here’s an extract of what I found relevant to your case, the whole article is here in case you need it:

Can I use multiple Steam accounts on one computer?

Yes, you can access different Steam accounts from one computer. However, you may only access one account at a time.

The accounts will share the core files for any games the accounts have in common, but each account will maintain its own custom content and configuration files.

Can I use my Steam account on other computers?

You may use your Steam account on any machine which can connect to the Steam network - Steam allows you to download and install any games registered to your account as soon as you log in.

Can multiple users play simultaneously on one Steam account?

Steam does not support multiple players using one Steam account simultaneously - games associated with a Steam account are licensed for the sole use of the account holder.

If multiple users attempt to log in and play simultaneously with one Steam account, the user who logged in first will eventually receive an “Invalid Steam UserID Ticket” error message and be forced to log back in to continue playing (if the first user logs back in, the second user will receive this error message).

Based on this, there shouldn’t be any problem with both of you using the same computer.

Once the laptop is back from service, you can play together, just remember checking Steam credentials before logging into the game, so you’re sure you’re on your own account, same for your daughter. Other than that you’ll be good.

If you have more questions, or if I can help you with anything else, let me know. Stay safe! :smiley:

Thank you for clarification.
