Multiple Instances for MP (Split Screen)

Post by Seldalore » 10 Apr 2019, 01:40

Hi,

I did some research, and couldn't find anywhere a way to disable or select a specific controller for OpenMW. Is it possible through some option in the settings?

Also, is background input an option? When I have both instances running, having background input enabled for the instance using a controller will come in handy. Two years ago someone asked about background input (viewtopic.php?t=4120). I'm wondering if it's been included since then.

I ran two instances of OpenMW MP edition, which worked flawlessly. Had both connected to my server, with two characters side-by-side, and had a nice split screen setup going. I would really like to know if there's a way to designate an input to each instance to achieve full split screen.

Oh wow, sounds like a really nice idea.

I think this is related, but it's probably not yet in the current version of TES3MP.

Looks like a nice step in that direction!
