  1. I found this method elsewhere, and using the search function on the forums, did not find it posted here. I only found questions, but not many answers. Things you will need SII Decrypt (Included as an attachment, but the original downloaded is also included) Your original ETS2/ATS Profile 5-10 minutes Why Duplicate? Some people here may ask, why do this? I mean, you can just use money/XP mods, whatever. Yes, you can do that, but if you're like me, you like a sense of progression. You can easily use an XP mod to progress, but where is the fun in that? A sense of progression feels important in slower-paced games like this, and having access to everything right away is ruining the experience a little. As well as the fact, you don't have to drive hundreds/thousands of kilometers/miles to unlock garages and drivers, so it is a little easier just to have this done. This way keeps your garages, starting city, drivers, trucks, XP, and purchased items intact.The only thing that may change is your money, and that's not in my control at all, it is the game server. Step One Find your profile that you want to duplicate. By default, it will be in your Documents/[Euro Truck Simulator 2/American Truck Simulator] folder. The profile will have a set number ID. If you can't find it (Because you have multiple profiles), then load ETS2 and start your profile, then drive for 10-15 seconds. Your profile will be listed as the most recently edited profile. Here is what mine looks like. You may have more OR less files than I do in your actual profiles. This is normal. Step Two To get started, we need to create a new profile. In this example, it will be called "Multiplayer", but it can be whatever you like. You must be able to remember this name, as this cannot be changed, and you must know the profile name exactly. The rest of it does not matter, as it will be replaced later on. Here is my original profile and my new one. The only thing that will matter here is the name, and you can put random values in the other options. When you create the profile, run yourself through the setup wizard, as I am not sure if the controls carry over. I personally have not tested. Opt to skip the tutorial, and skip the intro movie. Once you are in your truck, save and quit the game. Step Three In your profiles, the newly created profile should be there. Open the new profile, and marvel at the fact that you are about to murder those poor files. Then send them to the graveyard. The desolate place known as the Recycle Bin, often foretold among the files as horror stories and fairy tales. Now laugh as you realize, files are not sentient, and I just made this tutorial a little more interesting for everybody. Or are they? Step Four Go to your original profile (The one you are duplicating), and copy the files. Paste them into your new profile folder. Step four is easy. Step Five In your new profile's folder, there should be a file named "profile.sii". This is the file we will be using. If you open it with a text editing tool (I am just using notepad), you will get a random bunch of letters. This is because the profile is encrypted, and we will need to use SII Decrypt to view it properly. If you haven't already, download and extract SII Decrypt. This is an extremely useful tool, and this would not be possible without it. Once you have SII Decrypt extracted, open the folder, but not the .exe. SII Decrypt is a command line based tool, which is a fancy way of saying you need to drag your profile.sii file onto your SII_Decrypt.exe. If done correctly, a transparent window may open for less than a second, and in some cases nothing will happen. If it worked properly, it should have actual values when it is opened up in Notepad or other text-editing tools. NOTE: You do NOT need to do this to your profile.bak.sii file, and I believe it is safest not to do it. You can always recover the backup and re-do this. Here are the images used in this step. Step Six Now that you are here, scroll all the way to the bottom, and find the value "profile_name". In my case it is dwcuyle, but it will be the same as your original profile. Set that value to the same name as the profile you created. In my case, it is "Multiplayer". It is case sensitive. Save the file (CTRL+S or File and Save), and close notepad. Here are the images in this step. Step Seven Now you can load the game. If done properly, all of your stats will match your SP. Garages, trucks, starting city, literally everything will carry over. Now, you may enjoy the usage of all of your XP, all of your trucks, all of your garages, and everything you had, carry over! The money will not carry over though. Not because this method is flawed, but because the server time is different so you will spawn with several millions of dollars. At least you would if you had one driver before this. If you have no drivers, the money will be fine.

    MP Not Registering ATS

    Family sharing wouldn't show up in her recent activity. Guess we just can't play. Oh well. That sucks.

    MP Not Registering ATS

    You didn't read my post, at which I said "She is not on family sharing". Family share games don't show up on the public profile either.

    MP Not Registering ATS

    My friend recently got ATS, and whenever she tries to acces WOT or multiplayer, it says she doesn't have the game in her library. It is on her public profile, and it says she has played it for two hours, yet neither of them are properly working. It isn't on family-share either. Here is her profile for proof: http://steamcommunity.com/id/heistaesthetic/

    Multiplayer problem

    Try moving away from your garage in SP. In Multiplayer, you need to load a lot of trucks, which may cause issues. If you move to single player and move away from the city, you won't have to render as much, which will give you a better framerate until the game can properly load.

    Telemetry SDK

    The TSDK (I assume) works on MP. I have a VTC that uses VTMLive, which tracks distance driven, fuel used, fuel economy, trucks used, amount of money earned(After cost deductions) and other important things. It gives me an SDK notification when I start the game, and VTMLive works perfectly. I would only assume this uses the TSDK, and I can say with confidence that it does work.

    "time taken: 90643" on a quick job

    The server is always on, and time always moves in MP. If you take a job in SP, you won't be accurately lined up on MP. I have two duplicate profiles. Both are exactly the same, one for MP, one for SP. The SP one has 10 hours played and 18 in game days finished. The MP one has 13 hours played and 3777 in-game days finished. Whenever you load into MP from SP, the time passed from a shipment won't reset. It will keep counting, even when you aren't there, so you should never leave MP while finishing a shipment.

    ATSMP US Server Down

    Thanks, just wanted to be certain they knew

    ATSMP US Server Down

    The ATSMP US server is down. For some reason, whenever I join, it just says "Authenticating" and tells me it cant connect. It never had this issue before. I have come to the assumption that it is down, as in the US it is (In all states) between 3-7, and still not a single person is on the US server. The Server Status says it is online, but I can't connect because of an authentication error. This can't exclusively be on my end, if absolutely nobody is in the US server. My internet connection is 40 mbps download and 10 mbps upload. I have never had any trouble getting into MP until now. EDIT: I see this is on the ETS2 server in the US as well. All US servers are down.

    Virtual Trucking Manager

    I am absolutely in love with VMTLive. It has made using and creating a VTC so much easier. However, I do have some problems/insights. The site is a tiny bit confusing to learn, but took me no longer than an hour to understand. Ultimately, I think there should be a simple "Getting Started" guide or something similar. Something to familiarize new people to the site. Second, I don't understand the wages idea. Wages aren't placed in the game, they are just deducted from the companies overall bank. Why even have a wage? Third, I think that with VMTLive, it should take all maintenance and fuel fees on the job and send those into a report automatically, as well as the journey. Fourth, I wanted to be a co-owner with a friend of mine, but while I was CEO, I could only make him a General Manager. It would be great to let him own the company with me. Fifth, sometimes the program doesn't connect properly. It logs in, but says im disconnected. I just needed to restart the program three or four times, but it's still an issue. Now for the positives, it's a great program to use. It provides graphs, charts, everything to monitor how well your company is doing. It has a great management system, from CEO, to managers, all the way down to basic drivers. Any incidents done on the job are reported (At the discretion of the driver, not done by VMTLive), and it's a very realistic and independent system. If you don't feel like installing a plugin, you are free to do paperwork in order to properly work, acting like a real company. Honestly, the realism with this is scary. It's a lot of hard work, but worth it, if you're serious.
