I understand that I could just copy/paste the save to a backup folder and then start the game over with a fresh file. But if I wanted to have multiple parallel saves stored online, how would I do that? Apparently on Steam there was a family sharing feature that would allow this, but I don't think GOG has an equivalent. So would my only option be to just make another GOG account and rebuy the game? If so, could I use the same install location with just a different save location?
There is a mod that seems to allow you to have multiples save game slot, and you can download it and read more information about here: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonsdogma/mods/40/?
; but I never tested it, and don't own the game to do it. If you want to try this mod, check the question 5 of this FAQ, which say where your save file will be located: http://items.gog.com/dragons_dogma_faq/Dragons_Dogma_Dark_Arisen_GOG_FAQ.pdf
Edit: Otherwise, as a manual alternative, you can copy you current save game to another folder, like a backup, and create a new save game. But will need to repeat it everytime that you want change characters. Seems that the Steam version have a "family share" feature that allow different saves, however I don't know if GOG have plans to implement something like this.
Hi, thanks for the response. What I was wanting to be able to do is to have multiple simultaneous saves online. It seemed like it'd be cool to make a custom team of pawns. I'm running out of things to do in the game so that sounded like a fun project. Unfortunately, just moving the saves around manually or with a mod would still just be one save online at any given time. I guess what Steam does with family sharing is create a different online ID, but GOG doesn't have that feature. So then my questions were: Is my only option to make another GOG account and rebuy the game? And if so, can I used the same install location or would I have to have two instances of it on my hard-drive?
