How to run multiple instances of Uru Live on one PC?

Post  Mister Magic on Sun 20 Apr 2014 - 22:56

Attention :  This procedure only works with the Internal Client (ie Plclient) and not with the external Moula client !

I was asked how we could open multiple instances of Moula on one pc.
Here's how I do.

Firstly I have a pc with windows 7 with a 64-bit core pocesseur intel i5-460, an ATI graphics card with 512MB VRAM and 4GB DDR3 memory.
With this configuration, I can open up 4 instances at the same time, otherwise the PC becomes too slow.

We must therefore create 4 different accounts, otherwise it will not work because you can not connect two avatars with the same account.

I open each instance in windowed mode. So it is easier to go from one to the other by clicking on the corresponding window.

With your text editor, create a file Moula.vbs, if it doesn't exist yet  as this model:

Code:
dim objShell
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
objShell.Run("UruExplorer.exe /ServerIni moulagain.ini /localdata")
Set objShell = Nothing


Save it in your Uru live directory (in my case: c:\prgramfiles(x86)\Uru live)

Now open the first instance of the game then go to the folder \MyDocuments\Uru Live\Init\ 
Rename the file login.dat to login.dat1 
Then do the same with other instances of the game and rename each time the login.dat in login.dat2, login.dat3, login.dat4. 

Then, open your notepad and type the following lines:


Code:
@ echo off 
echo 1: account 1
echo 2: account 2
echo 3: account 3
echo 4: account 4
set / p name = What account do you want to run: 1, 2, 3 or 4? 
if "% name%" EQU "1" (goto account1) 
if "% name%" EQU "2" (goto account2) 
if "% name%" EQU "3" (goto account3) 
if "% name%" EQU "4" (goto account4) 
: account1 
del login.dat 
copy login.dat1 login.dat 
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live
Moula.vbs 
EXIT 
: account2 
del login.dat 
copy login.dat2 login.dat 
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live
Moula.vbs 
EXIT 
: account3 
del login.dat 
copy login.dat3 login.dat 
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live
Moula.vbs 
EXIT 
: account4
del login.dat 
copy login.dat4 login.dat 
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live
Moula.vbs 
EXIT 



Replace lines CD C:\Program Files (x86)\Uru Live  by the path of your Uru install 

Save the file with the extension .bat wherever you want. Place a shortcuts on the desktop and run it. 
A DOS window will open and will ask you what instance you want to start. And  the Uru Live window opens with the correct values ​​in both fields. Very Happy

Getting PlClient to work

Post  Squeester on Mon 22 Dec 2014 - 22:10

Shorah,
New here and need a little help. Trying to get the PlClient working.
In UruLive folder, I have current, updated MOULa version 1.918 ( and SkyDiver client also) at start of this process.
Downloaded the zipped Plclient, cwe918_client.7z  from (link removed) and extacted with WinZip.
Created folder for Plclient in the Uru Live folder, into it I copied the Python and SDL folders.
Then copied and installed the .dat and .sfx folders from the Uru Live folder into same folder.
Extracted zipped folder and now in the newly created PlClient folder and I see the following:
Folders:
Python, SDL, dat and sfx
Files:
moulagain Configuration Settings (moulagain.ini ?)
PhysXloader.dll  2.6.4.2
plClient918c "Book Icon" ( .exe ?)
plClient918c UBScript
python27.dll
python27_d.dll
NxCharacter.dll
release notes.txt
resource Video CD Movie (Resource.dat file ?)
.
I do not see, anywhere, in any Uru Live folder, the COPYING.txt and LICENCE.txt files. Different file names, maybe?
Also tried launching, just for the heck of it, from:
"Open Book" icon and the PlClient918c VBScript File and got a fault dialog box as follows:
PlClient918c.exe Entry Point not found
"The procedure entry point alcCaptureOpenDevice could not be located in the dynamic link library OpenAL32.dll"
At a standstill now and would appreciate any and all help to get the PlClient working.

Hi Squeester.

First, you must create a separate PLClient folder.
Unzip in it : 
- cwe918_client.7z  dowloaded here :  http://www.guildofwriters.org/cwe/cwe918_client.7z
- Plclient918c dowloaded here : http://magicworlds.actifforum.com/t494-plclient-918

Copy-paste from Moula folders: dat, sdl and sfx

You must have in the PlClient folder :

-folders: dat with all .prp, .age,... files,
             python (with folders :ki, Plasma, system) and all .py files,
             sdl with all .sdl files and
             sfx (with folders streamcache and temp) and all .ogg files.

-files: plClient918.exe, PlClient918.vbs, python27_d.dll, plCrashHandler.exe, .gitignore, COPYING.txt, LICENSE.txt, PhysX_Setup.exe, PhysXLoader.dll, python27.dll, resource.dat, NxCharacter.dll, oalinst.exe, CREDITS.txt, moulagain.ini, ReleaseNotes.txt

If you miss one of these files, tell me, I will send by private mail.

Start the game with PlClient918.vbs (never with plClient918.exe)

Michel,
Thanks for your help and the speedy reply, I know how valuable your time is. Merci beaucoup!  Very Happy
Just so you know, this Plclient thing is not a time sensitive issue for me, so please enjoy your holidays.

OK, now here's the latest:
In UruLive folder: I have current, updated MOULa version 1.918 (23/12/2014) ( and SkyDiver client also) at start of this process.

I downloaded the zipped Plclient, cwe918_client.7z as directed and extacted with WinZip.
I created a Plclient918 folder in the C/Programs folder. Good? Other location?
Into it I copied the Python and SDL folders.
Then copied the .dat and .sfx folders from the Uru Live folder into same folder.
In the newly created Plclient folder I now see the following:
Copied Folders:  Python, SDL, dat and sfx ( some issues below )

Files:
Zip file: plclient918c
Zip file: cwe918_client
moulagain.ini
plClient918c "Book Icon" ( is this the .exe ?)
PlClient918c VBScript
plClient918.exe ( zip file )
PhysXloader.dll  2,6,4,2
PhysX_Setup
python27.dll
python27_d.dll
NxCharacter.dll
msvcrt.dll  ( Is this needed? Not on your list...)
plCrashHandler.exe
Resource.dat file  ( shown in folder as resource Video CD Movie )
COPYING.txt
CREDITS.txt
LICENSE.txt
TOS.txt
ReleaseNotes.txt
.
Issues:
1. - ki folder is missing from python folder ( have Plasma and system folders )
( Is this a copy of the KIimages folder from URU documents folder? Or make new folder titled ki ? )
2. - temp folder is missing from sfx folder
3. - Do not have / can't see / find the following file:  .gitignore
Did quick Google search, couldn't find much about it.

Thanks again for sharing your valuable time.
Wishing you and your's a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
If you need to send anything to me ???, let me know.

This is how I’ve set up the one I use:

  1. Into an empty folder (e.g. Plclient), copy the dat and sfx folders from the vanilla client
  2. Get cwe918_moul-scripts.7z (or cwe918_client.7z), unzip it and copy the Python and SDL folders into PlClient
  3. Get these DLLs and copy them into PlClient
  4. Get the PlClient files and copy the whole content into PlClient
  5. Either edit the PlClient918c.vbs file, or create a link and add the server parameters (see below).

Line in VBS file: objShell.Run("PlClient918c.exe /ServerIni moulagain.ini /localdata")

Line in link Destination field: Path\to\PlClient918\plClient918c.exe /ServerIni moulagain.ini /localdata

Stuff I have in my folder:

dat
Python
SDL
sfx
libeay32.dll
moulagain.ini
msvcp110.dll
msvcp120.dll
msvcr110.dll
msvcr120.dll
NxCharacter.dll
PhysXLoader.dll
PlClient918c.vbs
plClient918c.exe
python27.dll
python27_d.dll
ReleaseNotes.txt
resource.dat
server.ini
ssleay32.dll

I don’t know if the Skydiving client requires the vanilla folder or can also be run from the Plclient one.

Kororev,
Thanks for your input and for taking the time to help during the busy holiday season!  I'll be getting back to this new adventure when I have more time after the holidays. Thanks again.
I have done a little research on various website's forums, thank the heavens for Google Translate, and it appears that different folks have different files in their Plclient folder. Of course, I'm going on the assumption that they have a stable, working Plclient. It's a bit confusing to see various configurations of exactly what is in different Plclient folders. I've tried catching other game players, that I know run the Plclient, when in MOULa, but no luck yet. Probably due to everybody's holiday schedules.
 
Interesting observations, for example. LuMagic and Michel don't seem to make mention of the following .dll files that you have in your folder:
msvcp110.dll
msvcp120.dll
msvcr110.dll
msvcr120.dll
Michel posted that the following files are needed, yet you, and others, do not have them listed as being in the Plclient folder:
plCrashHandler.exe
.gitignore
oalinst.exe
There is also no mention of:
ssleay32.dll
libeay32.dll
I do recall having to aquire the libeay.dll file for the Skydiver client to work.
In the French forum, as expected, there is a lot more information to sift through.
It's good to have a new chapter of the MOULa experience opening for me after all this time.
Thanks again for everyones help. santa

Hello Mister Magic,

I have Windows 8 and I have 2 different accounts, but I only have one instance in my folder \Documents\Uru Live   I only have one folder called \Documents\Uru Live\Init and in another folder called \Documents\Uru Live\Avatars there are all the avatars I have created in the two accounts.

So I only have one file login.dat

Can you help me with this?

Thank you!

Hello Kaly..

Running multiple instances of Moula works only with PLclient.
Read again the post from its beginning.

Have a nice day!

I'm sorry.

It's just that my English is not my native language and I didn't understand exactly what PlClient meant.

How can I be a Plclient?

Thank you.

Thank you for your quick answer. I will try this weekend after work.

I was born in Spain, so my native language is Spanish. Although I studied French at school. But that was long ago, so my French is not so good. I understand it better than write it or speak it.

Merci beaucoup.

À bientôt!

Shorah,

I'm having a bit of trouble installing PlClient. I don't know if the problem comes from having Windows 8.

But I still have .dll files missing. Like:

msvcp110.dll
msvcr71.dll

It also showed the message that the PhysX installer in the PC was and old version, so I downloaded it from Nvidia page and I hope it works now.

Can you tell me where can I get the .dll files I need to run PlClient.

Thank you.

Refresh the Zip file in order to have these two dll and copy them in the c / windows / system32 folder
