Then where does -multiple go?

The problem with that would be using both profiles at once wouldn't it? I'm assuming by profile you mean like mine is Dark_Novak, or i could log into SparklePants the 3rd? Another user on the computer?

EDIT: Just typed in -multiple into the target field, and whenever I start Halo Custom Edition then double click the icon again, it just reopens the one that is already open.

Any special commands I have to input to tell it "Activate config"?

EDIT: I did that. Then I couldn't run the normal Halo CE because it couldn't find the files where it wanted to find it, so after I copied the files from Halo CE folder to desktop, then normal Halo CE was complaining about not having access to My Documents. It'd be easier to tell it to look at the Halo CE folder.

Where is that/how do I do it?

I know where the config.txt is, I don't know what to do now. What other code do I have to write into there? Both files are in C:\Program Files (86x)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\" But then what? What do I do to put it in there?

Me and my brother are going to play together.

Ok, so I've had SOME experience with this stuff, and unfortunately the same technique I used for another game, Borderlands, doesn't work. I use Auto Window Manager, give them both a new rule to Stay on Top, and wait until they both become active windows. Sadly, it didn't work. How I'm running two copies at once is I used Sandboxie, which some of you may be more familiar with than me, and I created the Halo2 Sandboxie, allowed Admin rights, set file access on "%personal%\My Games\Halo CE\" without the quotes, and "C:Users\My Name\Downloads\Installation Programs\HaloCEinstaller" (note the installer has a much more complicated name I copy and pasted into there, but that I simplified it for this). Then, I made a batch file made like this:
"C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" /elevate /box:Halo2 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe" -nolauncher -AlwaysFocus -Windowed -WindowPosX=0
It starts Halo CE, but Halo CE gets mad because:
"Cannot find user 'C:\Users\My Name\Desktop\config.txt'"
I can run both copies of Halo CE, one with Sandboxie regular startup, and outside of Sandboxie again with regular startup, no batch files or anything. I cannot keep them both active with my Auto Window Manager though. I need to find out how to do this. Thanks if you can offer help.

Halo 2 Vista Map Design / Technical » How to convert MAP files to .ass Jan 27, 2012 12:59 PM (Total replies: 2)

Hey guys, I'm new here, and really needed to ask this question after I downloaded a map and couldn't figure out how to even load the stupid thing. I got Crazy Mombasa and Boneyardv2 but have no clue how to load them in-game or out. I'm sure a ton of people ask this, and I haven't found anything explaining how to open them. I'm really sorry if there is something here that I just totally missed. Anyone that can help? Thanks guys.
