[Skimmertalk] more than 2 rigs in Omnirig with Skimmer?

I don't think so.  It appears to me that OmniRig is hard coded to only 
handle two rigs, and I'm pretty certain that CW Skimmer is hard coded to 
only call up a unique version of OmniRig.  I suspect that could be 
changed by Alex, but I don't know of any other work around.

The only exception I can see would be if:

a.  At least two of the rigs were able to use the same *rig*.ini file 
and the only difference was the port assignment.
b.  All three instances of CW Skimmer didn't need to be simultaneously 

I admit that's an extremely limited and unlikely scenario, but if it 
were the case I think it would be possible to come up with an AutoHotKey 
script that jumped into OmniRig for one of the instances of CW Skimmer 
to change the port assignment.  I've been able to manually modify 
OmniRig on the fly in the CW Skimmer <Settings> menu and it seems to 
respond fine.  It might even be possible to use the script to even 
change the *rig*.ini file to a totally different rig (as well as the 
port assignment, of course), but you'd still only have a maximum (I 
think) of two instances of CW Skimmer fully functional simultaneously.

I'd love to hear if you find a way to do it.
