Personally I use another way that I find much more convenient, but bear in mind that it is afaik not officially supported
and I don't take responsibility for anything going wrong, of course.
(Requires minimal command line knowledge).
The advantages of this method is that you can have multiple instances of the client running with different preferences without having to change the settings all the time, plus you save a ton of disk space, plus you don't have to repeat this every time there's a new client update (unless CCP changes the Info.plist file, but if they do it's an easy fix). One disadvantage is that you still have to use the "open -n" command to launch the second client (though I think you should be able to solve that somehow, I'd make a script that launches both clients simultaneously).
We're going to create a new app, e.g., "EVE Online 2.app" and in the "Contents" folder of that app create symbolic links to all the files and folders in the original app.How to:
1. Create a new folder next to your EVE Online.app (Cmd-Shift-N in FInder) and name it something like "EVE Online 2.app".
2. Right click the folder, which is now an "app" and "Show Package Contents".
3. In here, create another folder named "Contents". Open this new folder.
4. In another Finder window, show package contents of the original EVE Online.app and navigate to Contents.
5. Copy over the "Info.plist" file from the original app to your newly created one, and edit that according to the links above.
6. Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and cd to the Contents folder of the EVE Online 2.app (easiest way is to type "cd " and then just drag the little folder icon up in the title of the Finder window into the terminal).
7. Type "ln -s " and drag the "Frameworks" folder from the original app into the terminal, remove any eventual "/" from the end of the line and press <return>. A new folder named "Frameworks" should appear in your new EVE Online 2.app. The command will look something like this: "ln -s ../../EVE\ Online.app/Contents/Frameworks".
8. Repeat step 7 for all the files and folders in the original app, except Info.plist until the apps look identical, except the icons in the new app should have little arrows on them.
9. Optionally copy the "EVE Online" folder in ~/Library/Application Support/ and name the copy whatever you changed the Bundle Name to in the Info.plist file, so that you don't have to set up your preferences again.
