How to open multiple Puzzle Pirates: Dark Seas clients Reply to this Post

Without using another program such as Sandboxie.

1. You'll still need multiple Steam accounts, so go ahead and create those.

2. Make sure Steam isn't set to log in automatically. To do this, log out and make sure "Remember my password" isn't ticked.

3. Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Escape all at once.

4. Go to the Processes tab, find 'Steam Client Bootstrapper' under 'Apps', right click it and click 'End task'. This will close Steam and log you out, but still keep PP:DS open.

5. Open Steam again and log into another account, run PP:DS and you should have another client open.

You can repeat this multiple times, and the clients don't have any lag like they would when using Sandboxie. If a client freezes (happened to me the first time), just repeat the process for that Steam log-in.

And here I thought that steam authorization making it so you couldn't easily natively have multiple clients open at once was intended behavior on their end to cut down on opportunity for abuse.
