Is single player co-op possible with Workshop chambers?
When I was making my own co-op test chamber, I noticed that I could test it by controlling both bots with a single keyboard/mouse set by toggling between them. This was built into the actual game and I was prompted to do it. Is this possible to do for PLAYING the maps and not just testing them?

I know this can work via console commands using cheats, but it involves loading maps using ss_map, which requires that I know the map name and that it be in the folder Maps. The Workshop titles maps it downloads by random number strings, so finding them is fiddly, and I still have to copy them manually. And I can't even START the dang thing without plugging in two controllers, which I don't own.

Is there any way to get the editor co-op testing mechanic to work for actually playing maps? With or without cheats?
