Two characters responds to controller at the same time?
After playing the game with no problems I all of a sudden got this very annoying problem after saving the game. Two characters responds to my controller and are moving around at the same time? I’m playing the game on a mac with a xbox 360 controller. Down in the left corner a P1 and P2 are marked in front of two of the characters. It’s like the game thinks I’m playing a co-op game and both players are playing with the same controller? When I’m trying to play with the keyboard there’s no problems whatsoever.

Hope anyone can help as I really like this game but this problem really sucks...

Hi Henston. This might occur if you have used the keyboard to get into the game (the keyboard recognized as P1) and then switch to controller (which becomes P2). Try to use just the controller from the moment the game begins and let me know if it works for you.

hate to barge in, but does this game support co-op? i always do singleplayer for everything

Yep, The Cave supports local co-op.

Hi DF Vic, I tried starting the game only using my controller but as soon as I hit the jump button (or any other button, except the left analog stick) I jump to another character and are now controlling both this one and the one I started with simultaneously? It is also at that point the P1 and P2 appears. The strange thing is that when I start a new game (and overwrite the old one) there is no problems and I can play as single player?

What controller are you using? Can you go into your device manager and make sure that you dont have any other game controllers installed?

i didnt know it has co-op, so if other people are using the sameinternet source as u (i could explain better but the words arent coming to me right now) you can play co-op?

i got the same problem, if i press jump, i controll 2 characters at the same time (and i did't even finished choosing the characters). And another strange thing is, whenever I quit the game, steam big picture is stuck, I can only see the background and have to close it via task manager. I am running the game on my laptop Win7 64bit Xbox360 Wireless Controller.

Oh and I just recognized, that i can let the one character jump with the A button and the other with the B button... don't know if this is of any help...

I'm also having this problem. I'm playing on a Mac with a Logitech F310 with Joypad Mapper to bind keys. In the game, the controls are listed as keyboard keys. But since I'm Joypad Mapper to bind keys to my controller, could it possibly be reading it as 2 people playing? Do I just need to stop using Joypad Mapper and configure the controls in the game to my controller?
