That would be so cool! Each one would have it own savegames, config settings and characters.

DF has it
JK has it
MOTS has it
JO suddenly doesn't have it.
JA should have it.

The Q3 engine is capable of it! Enemy Territory has personal accounts and uses the Q3 engine.

I voted yes, I really missed personal accounts in JO, this would enable me and other people to play it in my household with ease!

I have around a dozen different configs, some for CTF, some for dueling, some for lower video settings, and some for team matches.

I even have most of them bound to keys so I can run them on the fly w/o even using the console.

This petition won't work, I garuntee that.

What will work is whipping up some MENU files that let you do just what you want.

I hesitate to comment on this, as nobody but me touches the holy JO CD.

Oh heck, why not. No, personal accounts shouldn't be implemented, because anything that makes it easier for kiddies to alias is a bad thing.

Actually there are two choices: Vote, or don't vote. I plump for the latter.

I don't want different acounts... I'm the only one on this (MINE!!) computer to play this game and I don't need seperate CTF accounts or whatever, since my config is L337 already :)

So I won't vote :mad:

i just use my own computer :) everyone in my house has their own computer, so theres no problem

But, people still live in caves and catch dinosaurs for dinner in places (hehe), its easy to implement something like this, and because of the way characters are made in JA, i bet you anything there will be a character profile thingy to select between characters.
You create your character from lots of elements such as gender, race, clothing etc etc, so regular savegames would just be silly
A seperate profile for each character generated i rekon
