    More than one Dedicated Server

    Hello everyone,
    currently im running one dedicated sportsplay server and I'm able to find it and host games on it.
    To find the server I have to use the launchoptions "-sportsplay IP:PORT" in steam.

    Now I'm trying to run a second dedi-sportsplay-server with the same IP but different PORT and to find both of them with different launch options.
    So far I tried:
    -sportsplay IP:PORT1 IP:PORT2
    -sportsplay selectds
    -sportsplay autods
    - nothing

    The only thing that worked was "-sportsplay IP:PORT1 IP:PORT2" but then I could only see IP:PORT1 server.
    So my question is:

    Is it possible to run several dedi-servers on one computer and to see them all in the lobby and be able to join?

    Thank you very much!

    I haven't run a pCARS2 dedi-server, but I am an experienced programmer/sysadmin, so I'll throw out some thoughts.

    Most application switches (launch options) only accept one argument. When you use "-sportsplay IP:PORT1 IP:PORT2" you're providing two arguments, when it's likely the application is only expecting one. The second one is likely ignored.

    Try this:

    1. Launch both dedi-servers
    2. Launch the game with launch option "-sportsplay IP:PORT1" and confirm you can connect
    3. Launch the game with launch option "-sportsplay IP:PORT2" and confirm you can connect


    If you're able to connect to each dedi-server separately, then your answer is that the -sportsplay switch only accepts one argument.

    Thank you for your reply, I did what you suggested and it seems like -sportsplay only accepts one argument.
    "-sportsplay IP:PORT1 -sportsplay IP:PORT2" didnt work either.
    I was hoping for some secret steam launch option attributes but I couldn't find anything.
    Thank you for your help !

    You need different configuration files, like its described withing the Userguide.pdf, and load the required files with the argument "-c [file]"
