4-player Local co-op template (W/Gamepad Support)

  • DEMO - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104 ... index.html

    Store page - https://www.scirra.com/store/royalty-fr ... pport-1508

    I created a template for 4 player co-op platformer with gamepad support to sell on the Scirra Store. What are things you'd be interested in seeing as part of this template?

    So far I have:

    -Can use 1 keyboard and 1 controller for local co-op. You just have to toggle the first player's Keyboard or Controller button at the character select menu.

    -Platform Behaviors for 4 players (all platform mechanics are coded to the family)

    -Character Select screen - 4 players have 6 characters to choose from

    -Dynamic Gamepad addition - If a player boots up a connected controller, the character select screen automatically recognizes this and knows to allow multiple characters to select before going to the first level. Same thing if they disconnect.

    -Can be easily modified to allow 5++ players (everything is controlled via Family Bahaviors and variables, so adding additional players is easy).

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • hm... demo says singleplayer?

    you need to add more controllers for it to be multiplayer

  • You mean like all on same screen/PC? ...not everyone on his own PC?

    I think there's already some templates for that. This was just meant for local co-op since there didn't seem to be any templates for that

    hmmm both links work for me, thats no good. No idea what to do about that, thanks for the headsup though.

  • The demo link works fine but the store link doesn't, at least for me.. also can't see the template on the list when browsing the newest additions there.. I don't know, maybe it just takes some time to show up/get approved. Anyway, hope you get it sorted out!

  • im thinking it could be because I didn't add all of the required images. I'll probably have to wait a day until they're approved

  • Just a quick confirmation, the Store link is now working!

    phew! Thanks for the confirmation!!

  • I see the description says to test the local co-op you need two controllers. Does that mean the template will work the same? Needing to two controllers plugged in to play 2 player local coop with a keyboard + controller isn't going to be a great setup for games..

    What do you mean? You need 2 peripherals to control 2 players. You can use the keyboard or controller 1 for 1st player only. If you link a 2nd controller, it recognizes this and puts it into 2 player mode. More controllers added = more players. But controller 2 only works for player 2, controller 3 for player 3 and controller 4 for player 4. I don't think anyone wants to play a co-op game on a single keyboard, is that what you're saying?

    I guess I could make a button that toggles for player 1 to either use the first controller or the keyboard. Wondering how I implement that since everything is tied exactly to the Controller's ID. I'd have to find a way to let player 2 to be controlled by controller 1 or 2. Player 3 would work with either 3 or 4, etc. hmmmm.... is this something you guys want?
