completely disabling 2nd player?
So, the new update came, and i'm very pleased with the continued support. And the incredibly fast support, consdiering it was about 2minutes from game won't run to, everything runs fine (on at least three different games at once, no less).

Still...when i try to play, as soon as i capture a second droid, the game seems bound and determined to alocate that droid to a 2nd, non-existent, player. With all the screwing with the camera that that entails.

i know the option was put in, with this update, as to which player would be using which imput (controller or keyboard), but is there anyway (or will there be anyway) to just force the game into a one player state?

Thanks a ton, Puppygames folks, for all the work you're putting into these games. i know (at least from reading your stuff, if not from personal experience) keeping things running like clockwork is no easy task. Hell, even with things wonky as they are with DA, the charm keeps a smile on my face.

Keep up the good work!

hmm I wonder how Alli hasn't come across this. Investigation is underway.

Hehe yep, playing two players on your own is definitely tough!

Sounds as if it's kinda detecting a button press from a controller that isn't there? What might work is if you completely unbind controller #2 and then set player #2 to use that controller. In theory there'd be no way for the game to ever receive a START or A signal - even a fake one - because it just wouldn't be listening.

If you want to try this, open up "controls.txt" in Users/<YOU>/.droid_assault in a text editor and completely remove all that lines that start "controller2".

Does that help?

Sorry about the late reply, i'm in Japan, so i was posting at about 1in the morning. i'll give it a try after work tonight and let you know how it goes. i'll be honest, though, computers are not a strong point of mine.

Anyhow, thanks a lot guys.
