From the SWG forum:

Open notepad and paste the following:

[SwgClient]
allowMultipleInstances=true


Save as user.cfg in your SWG program folder. You'll then be able to run two instances on the same machine. This is what I do for my two accounts.

Make sure to select all files as the file type when saving. If you dont, you'll have user.cfg.txt instead of user.cfg.

Only when on separate planets it might be a slight bit slower.

When I use two accounts I generally turn off many of the graphic features. If you look at the launch pad, you can go under options (I think that's the tab) and check the boxes to do that. In game I turn off graphics features as well.

That being said, I noticed with the RAM upgrade I don't seem to lag even if I forget to turn off the graphic options on the launch pad.

Some of the older players may know this already, but I will post it to help out those newer players that are looking to run more than one account and alt-tab between them.

As an added bonus, I am including the way to skip the Mustafar load screen movie.

Just copy and paste the orange text below into Notepad, EXACTLY as shown:

[SwgClient]
allowMultipleInstances=true

[ClientGame]
skipIntro=true
disableCutScenes=1




Then save the file with the name: user.cfg (save as all files). Make sure you have the Save As Type set to ALL FILES, otherwise it won't work.

You can either save it directly to your Program Files/StarWarsGalaxies folder, or save it to Desktop (or any other location) and copy and paste it into the main SWG game directory from there.

Simple as that and you can now wave goodbye to the Mustafar loading in movie and run multiple copies of SWG off the same computer. Enjoy!

You cant run multiple clients in Windowed mode, it causes a crash. Also you need to have the first game running, before you can launch the second.

I run two clients in window's mode all the time. You just have to be carefull not to hit alt-enter which will take one out of windowed mode causing the other to crash.

Regarding the error message, try loading one client all the way before starting the second one.

When you go to save it, select the dropdown list and change it to "all file types" instead of "txt files"

Then save it as user.cfg
