- Multiple player support
I certainly didn’t think I’d be able to get this feature up and running as quickly as I did! I left the interface a tad lacking, but oh well. Let me know if you experience issues with this. I tested it out as best as my brain could handle flubbing around with several controllers at once.
By the way, the controllers are set to be always active, meaning the 3DO system will think they’re always plugged in. I think this is a safe assumption, but let me know if any games complain or fail as a result.
Also, 4DO currently supports only 6 players; I tested these using Fifa soccer. I’m pretty sure there’s at least one game with support for 8 players, but I’m considering that a pretty low priority (and I’m not sure how the game managed to fit those last two controllers into the number of bytes I believe are available). Besides, I doubt that there are 8 rabid 3DO fans living in close proximity just waiting to test it out. Obviously, 6 people is downright feasible.
