Credits to my friend for giving me the instructions on how to do this

Using JP client and NA client as example

Requirement:
1. A PC which have disk space for all client and setup files, also match the requirements for running it
2. the most recent setup file of those two clients
3. knowledge of using "explorer", the file navigator in your Windows
4. knowledge of using "Regdit", the registry editor in your Windows


Steps (if you are able to login and play in NA mabi, skip to step 4)

1. Install NA mabi (example: install in C:\Nexon\mabinogiNA)
2. Patch it and login. Change preferred settings like resolution, effects etc. etc.
3. Logout normally and exit the client by clicking exit at login screen


XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

4. Go to to regedit (choose "run" at the start menu of Windows OS)
5. look for Mabinogi under HKEY_current_user/software/Nexon at the list
6. right click on the "mabinogi" folder inside the list, click on export
7. save the export at desired location and edit the name referring to the client version
(example: Desktop:mabinogi/mabiNA.reg)

8. right click on "mabinogi" folder inside the list and select delete
(and NA client is not functioning from this point)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

9. install another version of mabi in a different location than the NA one (now the setup file won't delete the previous client as it cannot find on in the registry)
Example: C:\Nexon\mabinogiJP
10. patch it and login (JP account), change preferred settings like resolution, effects etc. etc.
11. logout normally and exit the client

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

12. go to regedit (choose "run" at the start menu of Windows OS)
13. look for Mabinogi under HKEY_current_user/software/Nexon at the list
14. right click on the "mabinogi" folder inside the list, click on export (yes it is similar to NA)
15. save the export at desired location and edit the name referring to the client version
(example: Desktop:mabinogi/mabiJP.reg)


As you can see, the JP and NA client have same location Registry, so those can't be installed in the same OS even if you ONLY install at different locations.

So, you have two .reg files (export from regedit) one is for Mabi NA and the other is Mabi JP

To play as JP client: double click mabinogiJP.reg and click yes. Now JP client is working but NA isn't


To play NA client: double click MabinogiNa.reg (like in example) and click yes. Now the NA client is working but not the JP one

If problems appear, stop. and ask for help :D

If a patch appeared for one of the clients. renew the reg file and make another export to replace it with a more recent version.

phew.. I need a catnap

And you say that NA should not be functioning at this step but it is, it shouldn't be but it is. I've Installed Jp a few times and it won't run, NA will though. Hmm... I'll try a few more things... Any suggestions?

Edit: Hmm, ok it worked with Mabiongi Taiwan but not with JP. Kinda odd, but that's ok, I have a few friends in Taiwan too ^^
