How to run 2 game clients at once

How do u run 2 game clients on a mac if u have 2 different diablo 3 accounts? So that u can drop items and pick them up on another account.

I'd think you would need to buy 2 of the game, since to run them they would need unique CD keys.

So once you have 2 copies, just install both. One will need to be installed to another location since they would have the same folder name.

Maybe try renaming one of the installs? Like instead of "Diablo III" rename it to "D3". May not be able to use the launcher to open the one with the altered name though. Not 100% sure as I've not done it.

Also not sure if that would be considered "cheating" due to it's technically altering a game file, so may want to wait for a moderator or Bliz response on the subject before trying it.

Hello Shocker420,

its indeed possible to launch multiple windows. As Cruciarius is saying, that you need to rename one. That is not the correct answer. The second launcher will tell you that you already have one Diablo 3 open, because you can't not start from the launcher. You need to directly start the Diablo 3.app

That means, you open Terminal and type that in:
"/Applications/Diablo III/Diablo III.app/Contents/MacOS/Diablo III" -launch

Then Diablo 3 will start directly into the game, without starting the launcher. Then you close the Terminal and reopen it and type in the same command as above.

Best regards,
Nezan

And can anyone confirm this is safe to do without getting banned if I dont use any programs to bot or anything like that. Multi-boxing is ok and I dont even do that, im just using it as extra slots to sell items in ah and store stuff. Im assuming its ok to do but what about using the real money auction house? If I just buy a separate authenticator and only use blizzard balance instead of paypal I think that would be ok to do too?

Shocker: You should be fine. Since you have to have a separate Battle.net account for each instance of Diablo III, as long as you meet the login requirements for it and account requirements for the RMAH, you should have no problem.

I cannot recommend any multiboxing software as the official policy regarding such right now is that it violates the EULA, but since you are just switching between them for stash/AH slots manually that should not be an issue.

You will want to ask this question over in the Technical Support forum, as they service Windows questions there.
