About this mod

Adds basic local multiplayer support by allowing the PC player to possess NPCs via keyboard/mouse.

Permissions and credits
In order to allow the PC player to control NPCs you must be in Spectate Mode (F3). While in spectate mode you can hijack NPCs by pressing 'X' which will find an alive NPC and allow you to take control.

NPCs by default will 'lock onto' another player when controlled by the AI or when attacking, to disengage you can click the middle mouse button to allow you to move freely. You can lock onto the nearest enemy by pressing Tab. Rest of the controls are pretty straight forward.

If the first person view of the NPCs is uncomfortable for you, you can toggle Third Person mode by pressing T. The camera can also be adjusted with IJKL etc

While in Spectate Mode the VR player cannot use their pointer or any books, be nice to them and swap to HMD Output (F1) or Player View (F2) to allow them to use their pointer again.

Playing Online
Playing online is not officially supported by this mod however it is possible with the use of third-party software. To play online with a friend you can use any screen sharing tool that allows keyboard/mouse sharing e.g. Parsec, Rainway, Dixper, Moonlight. Steam Remote Play is not supported with Blade & Sorcery as it is currently limited to specific games.
