Mac local multiplayer - multiple mice

Postby tamriel » Sun Nov 27, 2011 5:12 pm

Trine 1 did work on Windows with multiple mice / multiple keyboards, but not on Mac.
Will Trine 2 do so?

Probably not. People using multiple keyboards and mice for are a small minority. People doing it on Mac are very few. At the moment, it's not even clear whether we could technically add the support in an easy way (everything's possible the hard way of course :) ).

I hope it will work at least on Windows.

This was one of the very best features of Trine 1.

Coop-Multiplayer with a local friend is awesome!

I would be really interested in the "hard way" on Mac, too!

Really? I thought that's how most people played when co-oping...

I think he meant to say on Mac .. we have support for that on Windows. It was already rather tedious task for Win, and would be even worse for Mac, hence we cannot promise any support for multiple mice & keyboard on Mac.

Well, I don't have any actual numbers, but judging from the number of bug reports and complaints received from beta, I would think most people just use (XBox) gamepads. Of course, it may just be because serious gamers are more likely to participate to beta and to own an XBox :) .
