Since the first demo, we've been asked too many times: "What about the online co-op?"
As we are a small team, it's just impossible to make a viable online experience with the limited resources we have.
Thanks to the fine people at Parsec, we are now able to workaround this issue with their amazing free tool.
Parsec is a free program which you can use to stream your desktop to other users. In other words - you let other people have access to the controls of your Windows PC and they can see your screen on their monitor. This way you can run Capsella The Lights of Lucern and play co-op with someone over the Internet just as if they were by your side!
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to set it up.
Go to www.parsecgaming.com, create a free account and download their app. Upon launch you will see this screen.
Once you’ve entered your data you’ll be greeted with this screen.
In order to proceed, press ‘add computer’ You’ll see the following options.
If you are the person who will be running the game choose the ‘host’ option. The other player will connect to you, they don’t even need to own a copy of the game.
Once you’ve got that set up you may acquire a link others can use to connect to your PC. They have to use the ‘play on a friend’s computer’ option in ‘add new computer screen instead.
Once the other person tries to connect to you a pop-up window will appear, asking you to confirm the connection. Note that the other person also must have a Parsec account and you may ask for their username. This way no unauthorized person will access your PC.
We hope that with this powerful tool we can at least make possible for you guys to play online with your friends, or even find new friends in our community to play together and have great fun!
