Can't split-screen
Feel like I'm missing something obvious. When we try to split-screen coin-op, it starts the game and plays through the intro but when it starts all we can do is spectate. Help?

How do you start the game?
Sade___ Jul 21, 2013 @ 5:31am 
uhm,... from steam, by pressing play. Are there other ways?
Griffin Jul 21, 2013 @ 6:44am 
Yea i meant specifically the split screen game mode.Took me about 30 minutes to see "Choose Layout" after i put in all the other settings.
Sade___ Jul 22, 2013 @ 11:16am 
split screen --> coop --> coin-op --> choose profile --> selecct player controls --> choose layout --> select a layout

then the game starts, intro is shown, after which everyody is stuck in spectator mode

Worked fine for me once i found "choose layout"

i've tried all other coop split screen modes and they all work fine. Only the coin-op has this problem.

is there a log or something I can post?

Interesting. Seems like it happens if the level starts with a cutscene. If you start split-screen coin-op on e.g. Broken Wings, you can play normally, but if you do it on Summer in Cairo, it gets stuck in spectator like you said.

I have reported that as bug 26955. It should be fixed for the next patch or the one after it (there's already one in the pipeline, not sure if this will make it).

Thanks for the report, Sade!

thanks AlenL, looking forward to the patch, nevertheless BFE is great fun, especially with some friends on the couch.

another clue:
in other coop modes i can skip the cutscene (by pressing fire on all controllers), however, in coin-op, i cannot skip the cutscene

I can't seem to find the bug report, how/where should be report bugs?
AlenL  [developer] Jul 25, 2013 @ 9:14am 
That's in our internal database. Don't worry, once the patch is ready, the release notes will be posted in this forum.

i dont know :O

On the other hand, feel free to report bugs you find. As every future game is built on the latest build of the previous game, every bug reported and fixed for SS3 is a bug fixed for SS4 as well!

First off, thanks for accepting the bug into your pipeline. I just wanted to ask.. any updates? I'm craving a good split screen session with my friends :D
AlenL  [developer] Sep 14, 2013 @ 8:56am 
The bug was fixed in the meantime, and the fix will appear in the next patch. Can't promise exactly when, but it could possibly be in about 10 days from now.
