Multiple player log ins from the same device.

Posted by jtmx
Hello I am working on a game that has an online split screen mode and I was wondering if it was possible for game maker server to have multiple accounts logged in at the same time on the same device? If not does anyone know if that feature will ever be coming?

Thank you for taking the time to read my question. :)

This is currently not possible. I'm afraid that this is not a very common use case, so support will not be at the top of my todo list.

Is there any reason why the game needs to be online when playing split-screen?

Because I'm making it so you can only level up your character when you are playing online to avoid players "boosting" offline and I want you to be able to play online matches with friends/siblings who are sharing the same t.v/computer so you can both level up and progress your individual characters.

Sorry if this seems weird or doesn't make sense but I appreciate your response :)

Only way I can think of is to first store the xp/levels in the GameINI, and when a player logs in sync it back to them.
