Launching two instances
« on: September 06, 2014, 10:13:10 PM »
Is it possible to remove the 'already running' check so that the game can be launched twice? I was able to get it working by deleting some steam related files in the game dir (, steam_apid.txt), but after reformatting and reinstalling AI War, I'm having no such luck.

Steam is the only thing that does the check on that -- the game itself doesn't.  If you run the game directly, not through steam, it should do it twice without a problem.
