Multiboxing SimCity

I have two seperate Origin accounts which each have their own individual version of "SimCity" purchased on them. Is it possible to play both of these accounts on a single PC simultaneously side-by-side?


I have Sandboxie which is a free multiboxing program but I can't seem to get the game to authenticate with Origin inside the sandbox. The game asks for me to register my product key through Origin which I have done successfully because I can log-on to either of my accounts without sandboxie.

Doesn't Sandboxie prevent other programs from writing to where they want to?  Sandboxie, as I understand it, forces writes to a sectioned off place on your HD, the Origin program might not be able to find what it needs to inside the sandbox.

  • I understand this and I have copied the entire Origin directory over to my second hard drive and made sandboxie launch Origin and then SimCity from this directory. Still having problems though.
