Even if using two copies of Secret Ops works, this can be quite taxing in terms of disk space consumption. Anyway, for those who are interested, I've written a simple little program to switch between several different pilots for Secret Ops. It's a small 20 KB download at http://home.pacific.net.sg/~kelvinlim/sopilots.zip and brief instructions are included.
Netscape users visiting the Secret Ops site may still be experiencing some difficulties viewing the fiction. Fortunately things are looking better under Internet Explorer now. Please be patient while Origin works these things out, the Secret Ops site is very complex.
