    Multiple Gamertags?

    Is there a way to sign in two gamertags at once on the same machine?  I use my laptop in the living room and love that I can see when people get on but my wife can't see her list at the same time.  It would be nice to have it in one window but even if I could just clone the program so I can sign in both would be good.

    Feature is in the works.  Not sure if it will be by running multiples of the program or if it will be all gamertags in one.  We'll have to see what we can make work.

    I'm doing some testing and upon successfully doing so, I'll enable the ability to open muliple copies at one time (0.0.0.33+).  This will allow you to actively monitor more than one account.  There will be some limitations, such as when you "autostart" the application with Windows startup, it will only start one copy.  Also, the last copy you exit will set the last login according to what that copy was utilizing.  It's not necessarily a perfect solution; however, it should work rather nicely if you don't mind the couple of quirks I've mentioned.

    Well, initial testing has not been favorable.  It's going to take a bit of work just to allow multiple versions running at once.  To make matters worse, it appears (at first glance) that it might be a huge performance hit as well due to passport issues.  I'm not hanging up on this issue just yet, but will have to table it for a while for other priorities.

    So, if you'd like to see this feature added in the future... sign your virtual signature on this thread accordingly.
