 Single type modules provide functionality that can not coexist with other modules of the same category. For example you can not run an OpenGL module and a DirectX module at the same time as both need full access to the hardware. Besides you have only one game screen to render to. For each cathegory the user has thus to choose his favorite module to run. Launchers provide the user with a way to select the single type modules optionally providing convenient profiles if required. The table below shows all existing single type module categories. Click on category name to learn more. Single type modules provide functionality that can not coexist with other modules of the same category.

 Multiple type modules provide functionality that can coexist with other modules of the same category. These are typically all modules loading resources from file like models or images. Modules of the same category can be loaded at the same time without interference. This is logic as modules able to load different file formats can (and have to) be used at the same time in a game. Games state towards the launcher what files formats they need to run. The launchers then make sure the right modules are loaded and running to handle the requested files. Hence not all modules are required to be functional for every game. The launcher is responsible to ensure everything is ready to run a game.
