Multiple installs of Steam version of SCE

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by SebastienL, Aug 25, 2015.

  1. Hi everybody,
    Is it possible to have multiple copies of SCE (steam version) running in parallel?
    I have recently jumped into this great sim, I love it, but I initially went a little "mod crazy" trying so many of them on my copy of SCE that I wanted to start fresh. :). As a side note, I own both SCE and rFactor on Steam, and I've gone through the same crazyness with rFactor. In doing so, I came across this wonderful guide that was posted on the Steam community for rFactor which is entitled "Managing Multiple Installs" (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=402188900). I've used it for rFactor and it works really well. I was curious to see if it would work on SCE as well but I'm always getting errors when launching my second copy of SCE. My trace.txt reports:
    NetComm.cpp 11276: NetComm checking command line: "trace=5 config=ConfigOpenWheels.ini"
    game.cpp 1330: Entered Game::Enter()
    osman.cpp 562: Entered OSMan::Enter()
    plrfile.cpp 2591: Entered PlayerFile::Enter()
    setup.cpp 2904: Could not find any scene files. Possible problems:
    setup.cpp 2905: 1) Incorrect season or tracks directory specified in config.ini
    setup.cpp 2906: 2) We do not have read permission for those directories
    setup.cpp 2907: 3) There are no scene files!
    setup.cpp 2966: Number of SCN files found was 0, but those passing RFM filter were 0
    game.cpp 1286: No scene files found
    game.cpp 1960: Entered Game::Exit()
    Before I spend any more time trying to get this to work, I wanted to verify if I was simply wasting my time? Can this work with SCE? I am in the process of getting Process Monitor traces to see if I can figure out what's going on, but maybe it's simply not meant to be...
    Thank you very in advance for any help you may provide!
  2. As I recall rFactor for steam was redesigned in some ways to allow for multiple installs as well as other improvements.

    (I can't say for sure) I think that GSC steam is not supporting this feature yet, and I bet it will be coming soon.
  3. Thank you for the reply Gringo, much appreciated!

    I think I will put my efforts on hold for now. I've started looking into mod managers to handle my growing mod addiction. :)
  4. Try Jonesoft Generic Mod Enabler - an old program, but works very well.

  5. Thanks Keith, I will surely give it a go.
