Multiplayer[edit]

Online and Local Multiplayer stores all progress data on the host's save file, so that while it's possible to play through the game from start to finish in multiplayer, you cannot import your singleplayer character into someone's multiplayer game.

Online Multiplayer[edit]

Online Multiplayer requires all characters to stay on the same screen by default. However, you can change this by enabling the in-game console with the Enable Console mod.

You can then access the console by pressing Esc and clicking Help Topics, entering the command multiplayer_tether_screen 0 to allow each player to be on their own screen, and finally entering the command modal_close_all to close the console.

If the host has the Treasures of the Sun DLC, all connecting players also need the same expansion.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/39160/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (39160) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
