Small feature request: starting new local game using gamepad
« on: November 23, 2017, 12:04:54 pm »
Hey there

So my sister and I like to play local games using two gamepads.
Our problem is: when a local game ends, we can't start a new game just using the gamepads. There is this selections screen where can start a new game or go back to the main menu, but only works with the mouse.
It would be nice if we could start a new game using the player 1 pad, say by pressing the jump button.

We play while wallowing on a couch which is 3 meters away from the computer and it costs a lot of effort to get up and drag our asses all the way to the mouse, and it happens quite frequently as games are typically short. There's an added risk of accidentally kicking one of the soda cans on the floor or stepping on a pizza. So yea it's a pretty big deal.

Any hope this issue could be fixed?

Thaanks!

I didn't realise people were still playing GunMonkeys, that's lovely to hear :)

Um, sadly because it's been removed from Steam I'm not in a position to update it any more. HOWEVER before I took the decision to drop it, I did put together a local MP only build of the game. I can't remember if it does what you're after, but I'll set it uploading so you can grab it and see if it works. Fingers crossed.

I checked for you and no it doesn't, I'm afraid. I'm kind of bogged down with New Things at the moment, but if I find myself with time to look into it I'll give you a poke :)

Well the game's awesome, the only problem was finding other players for online games.

Thanks! I appreciate that!
