So I’m mid way into development of a 4 player local coop splitscreen game and I’ve been working on the character creation widget today, but I ran into a snag I hadn’t thought of. Short of making my own slate based on screen keyboard, I don’t know how to utilize native on-screen keyboards for a game pad. Specifically, does Steam or the Steam Link have some sort of on-screen keyboard support built in that I can use somehow, or will players have to use a wireless keyboard or something on their couches (or my hacked together on-screen widget keyboard)?
I’d love to see my game on consoles, but I don’t know how feasible that is anytime soon, so I’m just worried about PC, primarily Steam right now.
Currently I’m just using a name generator for naming characters/save slots but more information about my options would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!
