Local Multiplayer using Puzzle Template BP

I’m having some problems implementing a two player versus game play using the puzzle template. Both players share the same camera so I unchecked the split screen option.
In my game logic blueprint I created another player.
The first problem is, using my player controller as it is, only the player two can handle inputs, somehow it overwrites player 1 even tough said BP is configured to get the first player input.
Problem number 2 is about how to obtain a players index trough blueprints?, I cant seem to be able to get it from anywhere.

any tips will be deeply appreciated thanks.

Hey the problem might be that if you are using a keyboard and a gamepad, UE4 would see both as input devices for the same player.

i don’t think so, all of my inputs are gamepad related for both players. alt text
