Alright, I might have someone that I can go trough this whole thing again to make sure i understood it, the english while I understand much might be an extra layer of difficulty for me here.

I compared this to a windows account that I saw on many PCs  years ago, like do you want to log in as "Motiz" , as "admin" or "family"

That I barely rememember, but I filled in the blanks and thought you might not be sharing with the other account what I'm using here. 

At this point it feels like the only thing still confusing me based on you telling me it sounds like I still haven't understood it correctly.

Maybe I actually need to see it to make sure I don't missunderstand it just by imaging the wrong thing or something like that.

I just didn't imaged that I do that sandbox thing, have a second account and just continue like normal. 

Me saying I need to install everything again might be because I expected a fresh account. I...try to search for exampled now, maybe I just need to see it. Thank you for the help it does feel like you told me everything there is.


It is the same as run as administrator, only in the opposite. You do not log in as that player, you just start the games this way. Should you decide to run all itch games this way, you might want to copy some of your save games over. The link above has some explanation how to do this.

To answer your earlier questions, I use 2fa, but later found out, that it will not protect against account hacking by credential stealing. Mixed feelingers here. And I do not use the itch app, but I sometimes use the same method of sandboxing manually. Generally, I just do not download suspicous games, but wait a while. I put them on collections for later viewing. Chances are, after some weeks, the comments and ratings will indicate better, what kind of game it is, and if I would like it. Also, most scams are gone till then. Stumbling on old scams is the exception, but it can happen.

Thank you, I believe for now were done here and I will really take my time going over it again in a day or two. For now I just see if I can still fit that onto my phone and  be a bit more patient with promising ideas with these games. I understand a bit more now that is pretty much more open to this stuff happening than.

One last time. This time I understood and I am reading it a bit to late again, I use my current main account or whatever way I just start everyday, but the sandbox mode creates another "fake User" folder with which I use to play the games.

So old account, but the new account or folder pretty much only acivates during my gaming sessions. my explanation is messy but I have that image in my head that I just boost the game, I remember something about a passwort okay....and then play it.

Sooo are there any multiplayer games on Now it would be interessting if this could become in any way annoying. 

I stop here I'm to tired, I will learn not to answer these that late. Still a bit to lazy but I will do my homework soon, thank you for the links.

If you never heard those concepts, they are hard to grasp. It is not a fake user. It is just a different profile to use, to play potentially unverified and amateur made games. I think it is telling, that the itch app even offers this feature. Maybe there were other reasons, or they just implemented it, because, why not. It is rather easy to implement, and it does kinda protect the main profile from shenanigans an amateur might have done. Some horror game developers try "clever" things, to spook the player.

Note: you do not need to use that feature. But maybe follow the advice you cited. Do not download and play the newest things, when they are new. They are mostly unfinished anyways, and full of bugs.
