Hi, I am interested in creating a new character but I also want to have my other character still around and be ready to play whenever I want. Can anyone help me out or tell me what to do, would be much appreciated, thanks. --- Steam ID is kfcsnacker.
You can have two characters, you just need to be able to keep up with which save files are which. --- http://redhawkhacker.deviantart.com/ | LoL IGN: RedHawkHacker Singed: the only champion where running in circles is a viable way of playing. - Pixlh
This is the game's biggest fault, imo. The save system is in desperate need of having a character profile system. There's no organization and you actually have to go out of your way (to an extent) to back up your saves if you decide to make another character for play testing purposes.
Games in the early 2000s had this feature. Why Beth decided to not do it is beyond me.
From: kfcsnacker | #005 Ah so you can essentially have as many characters as save slots? Autosaving does not ruin this does it?
auto saving will remove your previous characters progress but only if you dont have a major save of it. and if you dont then you deserve to have your other characters deleted. --- oh great... why would they do that?

So If I go and enter skyrim in my current character, just save in a certain spot, reopen skyrim and make a new character, choose a different save sot they will not interfere and I can have two characters? --- Steam ID is kfcsnacker.
just open your first character, hit save and it will save.
make new character and when you go to save hit the new save option and it will save it as its own save. the only thing is that it will save it as a the next number in line
so say your first character was on, lets say, save 85. your new character will be on save 86 and on. but your old one will still be save 85 until you resume it and save that one. --- oh great... why would they do that?
