    Default Talk to me on running 2 instances.

    Is there any idea if running 2 instances on the same comp is possible? Is there any way to tell yet if one could do this? Is it still too early to know?

    That will be impossible without a clever little program I won't mention. I doubt you could run two clients on your comp anyway, unless it was super awesome. Multiboxing on the other hand is usually not against the rules.

    Also, please don't ask how I know these things.

    I'd say it would depend on what a resource hog RIFT is, and how beastly your comp is. As far as a "program" to do so, I don't see why you'd need it. I can run multiple clients of pretty much anything I want, with no special software.

    Yea, I run any of the SWG games multi-instanced, and also ran LOTRO and others on one box...without a program to help it along...

    But, jsut wondering...

    You'll wipe any group you are in. Unless things change you'll be clicking way too fast to ignore a character.

    I wouldn't run 2 toons at once raiding. Or grouping. I have done that. With my Minstrel on the laptop in LOTRO. I always, when someone invited me, told them that I was 2-boxing. Even with that, I was often tolds I was a better healer than most...
