im trying to run two instances of one program (dance game called Pump It Up). ive tried quad-clicking it but it loads too fast so i cant get the last click in. is there an easier way to do this?

thx!

Alot of programs you can run two instances of. You have to install it twice, to different directories. I highly doubt this will work with a game, but you can try.

maybe some commandline type thing not sure how it works in windows to load a program and get the prompt back immediately

some sort of mod of this might work though
\> C:\path\to\proggie & && C:\path\to\proggie &

on nix systems the & makes it run in the background or in the case of gui apps runs them and returns you to the prompt and the && is the logical AND so it does the part in front of the && and then does the part after as well

actually testing this the first & does return you to the prompt, but the && doesnt work

if you make a .bat file which does
C:\path\to\proggie &
C:\path\to\proggie &

then it might work

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
