you could try using more than one controller if thats available? see if that works. otherwise im not sure.

I've been trying to do the same thing, no success thus far.

Just found a way! Go to character select before plugging in the controller so that it sets itself to player 2.

hmm that doesn't seem to work for me, anyone else got any suggestions?

Can you hotseat on a keyboard, i.e. player one on WASD and player two on arrow keys? This isn't ideal but as a stopgap you could use joy2key.

Here are the specific steps to reproduce what I did :

1. Have the controller Unplugged.

2. Select a character using the keyboard and lock in (The game will now start shortly)

3. Before the game does start, plug the controller in, it will set itself to Player 2 and you'll be able to pick a character.

I have Xbox360 controller and I was able to play coop with 1 gamepad and keyboard.
Here's what I did step by step:
1.Plugged in my controller.
2.Player 1 indicator is on.
3.Started Left 4 dead 2
4.In console typed: ss_map <any map name>
5.During loading screen unplugged the controller.
6.Plugged in the controller again.
7.Player 2 indicator is now on and player 1 indicator on the controller is off.
8.Turned off L4D2
9.Launched Castle Crashers
10.Played 2 player coop with one game pad + kb and had a great time :D

P.S. need to repeat all these steps when controller indicator switches back to player 1.

Maby someone could find easier way to switch the indicator on the controller from player 1 to player 2 ? Some kind of software or something to switch between those?

Just connect the controller when you on the character selection screen and the controller will pick the player 2 slot...

For me it doesn't work. The indicator on the controller always switches to player 1 not player 2

Even if Player 1 has already locked in with a character?

I dont own a xbox controller for PC, but I do own a ps controlelr for PC, so, it didnt worka t first.
I recommend following this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI5M-VGt5vc , and in settings, make sure you put it to pad 2.
As far as I'm aware, it should work fine with a normal XBOX controller.

I have an xbox controller and a logitech controller. I have the logitech working through xpadder to work in Castl Crashers.

Each time no matter what both controller and keyboard are fixed on player 1. This is a really fail design on their part since this game is all about local co-op.
