If you try to launch the game and receive an error saying "Another instance of this application is already running", this guide will walk you through fixing it.
This fix will allow you to run multiple copies of the client connected to Empire in Flames and will also allow you to run a client connected to Empire in Flames at the same time you are running one or more clients connected to other SWG Emu servers.
Step by Step
If you aren't a Windows power user, some of this may seem strange, but take your time, read each step carefully, and follow the instructions and you should be fine.
Step 1. Run Notepad as Administrator: Find the shortcut to Notepad in your Program Menu, right-click on it and choose "Run as administrator". By default, on Windows 7 and earlier, Notepad will be located in (Start) > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad
Step 2. Open swgemu.cfg: Click on the File menu and choose File > Open, then browse to the directory where you installed EIF, change the file type from Text Files to "All Files" then open the file called swgemu.cfg
Step 3. Edit swgemu.cfg: Remove the hashmark ("#") at the beginning of the last line, so the file looks like this:
Code: Select all
.include "swgemu_login.cfg" .include "swgemu_live.cfg" .include "swgemu_preload.cfg" .include "options.cfg" .include "user.cfg"
Step 5. Create user.cfg: Click on the File menu and File > Save As, then change the file name to "user.cfg" (without the quotes) and click the Save button.
Step 6. Copy and Paste: Copy this code and paste it into your new user.cfg file:
Code: Select all
That's all there is to it ... now you should be able to run multiple instances of the game.
