Does any one run two accounts from the same machine? If so, maybe you could let me in on the secret method....

Is there some 3rd party program like EQW? Right now I'm getting the mesage 'Another instance of this application is already running'.

Thanks in advance.

First create a file in your default Star Wars Galaxies folder (IE: C:\Program Files\StarWarsGalaxies) called "user.cfg".

Then edit the user.cfg file with notepad. Add the following lines:

[SwgClient]
allowMultipleInstances=TRUE

After you add the above to the file, save and close it. Then, right click on the file and mark it as read only. (*edit* Important: if you don't make it read-only the game will just copy over your change.) Now run your game like normal, and load into the game world. Once your first character is loaded into the world, load SWG again the same way, only login with your other account.

You are THE MAN!

Thanks alot!

For anyone in the same situation, I actually needed to add the above lines to a file called options.cfg that already existed in the SWG directory. Working beautifully now!

Thanks again my friend!

ok it's late and I'm feeling stupid or something.
Remind Me again how I buy a second account without buying a second copy of the game? Is there a sony site I can visit that will allow Me to input the credit card and get Me a second account?
Sorry if this is just plain dumb but I looked and couldn't find it. Been up way too long.
