I can't play co-op using a keyboard and steam controller.

★★★★ Novice

I have a keyboard and a steam controller connected. Both inputs are recognized and work, but both control the same yarny. I can't figure out how to enable each input method to control a distinct yarny/cannot play cooperatively. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks.

Some questions. 

You did disabled "Origin in game"?

You added "Unravel two" as a non Steam game to Steam?

You do run Steam as an administrator?

Did you tried to connect the controller after you started the game?

Yes, unfortunately still the same problem. After plugging the controller in mid-game, I'm able to control the same yarny as the one I was controlling with the keyboard previously. Thank you for the suggestion, might you have any other ideas? I updated the controller firmware to the latest version, still no luck.

You might have done this, but if you go to the start menu, did you select the option to add second player on keyboard? If not, try to see if that works.

 

Also the option sometimes only appears if you open the menu, scroll down the options with the keyboard and then do the same for controller not closing the menu at all. I attached a photo after I made mine appear by scrolling with both keyboard and then the controller.

@Holger1405Not sure exactly which of your recommended steps addressed the issue since I used the shotgun approach instead of trying one by one, but I am no able to select "add another player on keyboard" in the menu. Thank you very much for all your help - it is very much appreciated! Have a great day and thanks again!

 @lunarokz Thanks for trying to help as well, I was able to see the option you were talking about after following all the steps recommended by Holger. I'm happy to see that the community is as willing to help as it is!
