Thank you so much for your response! So good to hear of someone else who is at least mostly successfully accomplishing local multiplayer! I am still very confused about how to both get in and am seeing a serious lack of basic documentation for how to do it!
Can you or anyone else point me to any basic documentation that tells me how to do this?
Do I really need to mess with port forwarding &/or HAMACHI in order to do simply local coop?
My current situation is I have two computers on my local network (Ethernet to router, router to internet) both computer are running separate copies of the game in their own epic games store accounts.
I have randomly messed around with the options of invite, accept, turned off send data, I dont see any other users on either computer when I go into invite or accept. What do I need to do so we can see each other !?
PS I know this is so called early access, but I think devs should at least put out some basic documentation to accomplish the primary features of the game, such as multiplayer!
