Android Split Screen/Dual App

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone!

 

Before start, sorry any english grammar mistakes!

English is not my native language and this is written

using all of my knowledge, online dictionary and

google translator! I hope don't make any mistake at all! :P

 

So.. let's begin!

 

I'm an old PokéMMO player who decided back to the game since five years and I'm proud how much the game itself evolved! My congratulations for the developers who done this amazing work.

 

Between this time of 2014 (last PokéMMO login) and 2019 (Now :P) I played A LOT of Pokémon main first three generations on my Android phones thanks to Old Boy! and My Oldboy! Emulators and I get used to TRADE WITH MYSELF. I like to trade every single Pokémon I get in the journey and love to trade them between games to grind all of them at the same time and the outsider Pokémon EXP boost bonus help me to grind a bit faster then it would usual being in a solo playthrough, also, I like to evolve trade-only Pokémon asap.

 

I started last month replaying this with a close friend that asked me to join him, I accepted and convinced him to gotta catch them all and gotta trade them all to enjoy the EXP boost, he loved the idea and we done this... but as soon as we arrived in Cerulean City he decided to quit and doesn't want to play anymore... I don't know why.. maybe he lost for a Zubat swarm in MT. Moon and lost his inspiration? I don't know but, anyway, I still want to play this!

 

So, I decided to create a fresh new account and start over with three new characters.

I read some topics here and it seems there's nothing against the rules if I trade with myself running two clients, most players that have two different operation systems do this, right?

 

Since the PC-Desktop is owned by my old brother, I just use it when he's out, so once I don't have full access to PC gameplay all the time, I'd like to avoid playing PokéMMO there and use ONLY my Android Phone.

 

My Android Phone supports the Split Screen/Dual App feature that allows the user to open two of the same app at the same time.

 

But as soon as I try to set the roms directory from the secondary app I just can't navigate in my internal memory directories, it only shows to me two folders (that not exist anymore in my internal memory, but existed once in the past) and no matter what I do, it don't let me to configure the roms for the game and start playing.

 

Please, there's anyone here with a silver soul blessed for Lugia and a golden heart given from Ho-Oh to help me fix this?

I just want to play this game like I have played until now and got used to play with all these years with emulation.

As far as I know they allow users to play separate accounts as long as the accounts are played from a different device. You are not allowed to use multiple instances of a client on a single device, at the same time. This may have changed while I was away, you'll have to wait for an official response.

 

While I'm not going to walk you through how to do this without first knowing if it's even allowed, and without knowing the app/phone, I can tell you that it's most likely because it's technically two profiles.......


Even if you do figure it out, you should probably take note that trying to run 2 clients at the same time will be a significant resource hog.

 

I gathered from your post that you simply want to be able to trade pokemon back and forth to yourself, so I feel obligated to point out that you can send pokemon to yourself even on the same account now. These pokemon would still gain the boosted exp. Also note that if you were able to run 2 clients at the same time, they would most likely not function at the same time (one would freeze while "inactive"). I can't verify this, but it makes sense.

 

In all seriousness, I know it costs 1k per mail to send pokemon, but it really isn't worth trying to accomplish what you're asking for here. Not for the average legitimate player anyway. In most cases, ideas like this spawn from wanting to find a way to make a quick buck, recreating alts for collection and selling of things like exp. share, etc.

So I misunderstand the rules and I was trying to do a prohibited thing? Now I'm sad.. It wasn't my intention. :/

Sure, better wait for an official response.

 

My smartphone is a Xiaomi Redmi 6 and it runs two Pokémon Go at the same time (but I don't do it because it's a pain level up a account in this game for me, two accounts would be too tedius, I did it just to test my smartphone's hardware at the time). I also splited other apps without any crash or glitch, the splited apps just lack a few optimization 'cause these apps wasn't made to being splited, but I had no problems with performance at all, it runs everything I tried flawless so far, I'm sure top notch games like PUBG would lag my phone if I would try it, but I have no interest in games like that, I prefer simple graphic games like PokéMMO or anything retroarch can emulate for me.

 

Some apps runs on background and those I can play with splited screen and PokéMMO would be one of that, there's no freezing like apps that stop automatically when not focused. Both splited games runs at the same time like Pokémon Go but just the second can't be configured. Now you mentioned that could be not allowed, I wonder if this is happening as a defensive way to avoid me doing this.

 

Ok, I would agree with your point that this would allow people to do some game breaking abuse, but I only want to login both accounts when I have to trade, it's insane play both accounts literally at the same time simultaneously, with the squeezed gamepad on the screen. I would play the accounts in turns in the majority time like I did with My Boy/My OldBoy emulators.

 

I have no interest to interact with other players that I don't know in real life. This game have three regions, and this seems interesting to me have this kind of experience I hadn't before in main game series. If the official response won't allow me to do this, I'll respect and give up this ideia.

 

I don't have any intention to break rules or make any gameplay abuse, if this is not allowed I'm going to back for the emulators and search for different gameplay in romhacks.
