Installing Guild Wars on multiple computers

#1cstapletonPosted 11/20/2008 4:41:47 AM
I would like to install my copy of Guild Wars on another computer in my house so my son and I can play at the same time. Is this possible? Do any of the stand alone expansions allow me to do this?

thanks GW gurus

You can install the client on as many computers as you want.

If you want to play together with your son, however, each of you must have your own account (meaning you each must have a unique username as password). If you try and log on with the same account, one of you will get kicked off.

we are connected to the same computer we are running a cable will that affect the game?

I'm not entirely sure I understand the question...

If you're asking if you can both be on the same internet connection when you play, the answer is yes. I've had 5 people playing Guild Wars at my house and it worked fine.

Still nothing to worry about with that. Your ISP's server will assign each computer its own address.
