Multiple Instances
« on: February 07, 2010, 06:34:25 PM »
Many people, including myself, have asked for TD2 to run multiple tournaments from the same machine simultaneously. Can TD2 be modified to allow multiple instances when running in simple mode and not tracking mode? The way the DB file structure is set up, it would be a major overhaul to allow one machine to run more than one tournament at once, however, when in simple mode, there aren't any dangers of player files being overwritten.

It has been written to allow for only one instance primarily due to database interaction concerns.  I understand your point about running in non-tracking mode.  However, since the release of 2.0, a lot more has been added that would be affected by running more than one instance.  So it would require a lot of code change to make this happen.  I don't foresee doing this as very few people really need more than once instance at a time.
