my sister has a cybercafe business which is typically have a server PC and clients PC. I want the multiple clients to access the game directly into the server, so I no longer install the games/online games in every clients' computer.

Anyway, I tried to test an online game playing it in two client at a time but it doesn't work.

So Is there a software capable of making one game playable by multiple clients?

There are solutions available for many games, but the solution is specific to each game. –  David Schwartz Oct 25 '12 at 5:19

You're looking at Cloud Gaming then –  slhck Oct 25 '12 at 5:34

Difficult, since if you try remote desktop type stuff.. it would kill your server. If you try to run off shared drive the environment may not be same (registry).

Why dont you look at software that allows you to do remote installs, I have no exp. with it but they discuss it here?

edit: not specifically games but similar issue is being discussed here, though main motivation there is cost.

edit2:@LiuYan 刘研 seems to have a good idea in diskless systems. Have no experience with it but looks promising

Actually the server has a good spec. but though if it not a type which can't handle many users at least I am expecting 2-3 users playing the game at a time. Any way the client's PC has also a CPU it is not just a monitor alone of course. –  Jayseer Oct 25 '12 at 5:08
