Being able to play various activities completely solo has been something a lot of people wish for in Destiny, and while other solutions already exist these are Powershell Scripts. While they work, they don't really tell you, at a glance, whether or not the script is enabled. So I decided to create my own program for this situation, Destiny 2 Solo-Enabler.
I created a program, which enables players to play activities in Destiny 2 completely solo, at the click of a single button. It can be downloaded here: https://github.com/DrNoLife/Destiny-2-Solo-Enabler/releases
As stated in the first section of the post, the purpose of the program is to give people the ability to play activities completely solo. The program does this by creating firewall rules thus blocking the game's ability to talk with the game servers. This basically means, the program does not hook into the game. The program does not talk with the game. The program does absolutely nothing with the game. The only thing the program does, is talk with your firewall. This in turn also means it needs administrator privileges.
How to use it.
I decided to also create a video tutorial showing how to install and use the program. The video has two versions of the tutorial, one short (40 seconds) and one long, about 5 minutes.
However if you want a text based version of how to download and use it, here it goes:
- Find the download link.
- I will link it at the bottom of the post, including a link to the source code.
- When you start to download the program, your browser will try to block it. This is because the program is not signed. Honestly, I did not sign it, because I just don't know how, but it's something I'll be looking into in the future.
- To prevent your browser blocking it, click on the 3 dots next to the download, and click on "Keep".
- Afterwards the .exe should now be in your Downloads folder (unless you downloaded it to some other place). Double click on the program.
- Now Windows will give you a warning, exactly like your browser did. It does it for exactly the same reason. Click on "More info" and then click "Run anyway".
- Now the program will ask for administrator privileges, it does this, because it needs to handle firewall rules, which requires such privileges.
- After giving it administrator privileges, start Destiny 2 up, and go into orbit.
- Once in orbit, click on the big "Enable Soloplay" button in the program. Once this is done, you're going to be playing solo.
- To disable the program: The button has changed, now saying "Disable Soloplay", click on that button, and the program will turn off. Now you can play with others again.
Blocking of program, why?
As I mentioned in the guide right above, both your Browser and Windows will try to block the program, or well, give you a warning. This is due to something called "code signing".
Code signing is basically a way to confirm that the program has not been changed in any way, since it was last signed, and also confirm the software author. However I'm just a Comp. Sci. student still within the first month of the education, so I just don't have the knowledge of how to sign software like that.
If this blocking of the software turns you off from using it, there's not much I can do.The complete source code is up on GitHub, and everyone can take a look at it and see what is going on. Even for people not into code, I believe I have created enough comments for most people to understand what is going on.
If enough people request it, I would also be willing to create a video going through every single file and line of code used in the project.
FAQ / Ending notes
If you have any questions for me about the program, feel free to ask them. However, please take a look at the FAQ on my Github Repository first, and see if the answer for your question is there already.
However with all that said, I hope the program will provide some use for this community! Especially with Festival of the Lost coming around shortly (should help a lot with farming various activities)!
See you all in the patrol zones! .. or well, not if you're using the program.
