TL;DR: I know the game is in super pre-alpha; I’d just love to see some better assignment of P1/P2 in the controller setup menus.
I wanted to play local with my wife earlier. Me - Player 1 using a keyboard. Her - Player 2 using a fight stick. When I held two buttons down to add a her fight stick (which works amazingly), it would only bind to player 1.
I may be a dummy, but this is what I ended up needing to do:
- Unplug her fight stick
- Insert a second/dummy controller (an unnecessary third input device) and bind that to player 1
- Plug in her fight stick and bind her controller to player 2
I could then use my keyboard as P1 and leave the additional third controller resting on my computer.
I find this amount of effort unacceptable to just add a P2 with a controller. I know probably not many people use the keyboard as a primary input device. I’d just like to see the keyboard treated like a controller after another controller is already installed.
I hope my message finds whoever well. It’s a great game for pre-alpha right now and I’m really digging it.
