How do I open multiple preview windows?

  • I would like to know how can I open more than one preview windows.

    Reason: Because I am working on a multiplayer game and I want to open multiple game windows so I can add more players in the game for testing.

    Using remote preview is not an option because it's taking too much time while developing... Any other options?

    Thanks!

  • Hit Ctrl + Shift + N with chrome opened

    This will open an incognito browser,. you can open as many as you like, great for multiplayer testing

  • Ok, I just tried incognito mode. Opened a project, but it still opens only one preview window. Did you mean that I have to load the project in multiple incognito windows? Thats still too much time consuming for testing.. because when I make a change in the game I have to refresh the game in all windows. Don't I? No other faster way to do that?

  • If you have multiple windows open, and you restart preview, it generally should reload all windows, if not, press restart preview again and it should.

    It actually goes pretty quick ....

  • Cmd + R is my best friend while testing in a new browser tab - or multiple.

  • Any offers on how to open multiple preview windows?

    Seems to only open one up and if I try to copy/paste the link it just sticks loading.

    Remote preview is no good to me as it takes too long and cannot use debug

    Basically I want to have 2+ debug preview windows open like you can in C2.

    Also there is a thread about multiple preview windows in the 'FAQ' but the replies do not work

  • higher2003 : How exactly is it not working ?

    Have you tried the different preview options available in the settings to see if one fits best your needs ?

  • Kyatric : i've tried the different preview options and have the same problem with each,

    So i have a project open, i click 'debug' which opens the debug preview window, i copy the address and paste it into an incognito browser window and it sticks loading.

    This happens with both debug and the normal preview windows.

    Works Great. But how do you get it to STOP running the Preview?
