Multiple Clients

    Is anyone having any problems running more than one instance of Enhanced Client? As in two UO accounts within the same windows session. I gather it wasn't written with this, specifically, so I wasn't expecting miracles. Wasn't so long ago I was lucky to have just one instance running at all.

    I can run multiple instances of EC, but it's slow. I can better run one instance of EC and one instance of 2d. To do it that way, launch EC first I think. ..

    I ran 2x EC pretty well, even stress tested okay when one was in my castle and other in luna..

    After a few hours, one client started showing the view from the other client, flashing white, and blinking intermittently. I think it was the first one launched that was having the issue. That's pretty good, though, and a restart now & then for something that's undoubtedly outside the design spec of the client is probably a fair trade-off.

    But yes, I can run EC + Classic indefintely it seems. I use Classic for my "banksitter" as it doesn't time out, and EC for whatever else I'm doing. The banksitter is there just to keep an eye on what's happening in town while I'm off solo; I like to stay in touch.
