    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Viewport Utilities defines mapping between:

  • players and devices (the physical controllers)
  • players and split-screen parts


What it means is that you can:

  • Control more player controllers with the same device, for example in a split-screen racing game with one player using ADWS, the other controlling with the arrows.
  • Have more active player controllers for turn-based games, with always the currently active player visible on the screen, and only this player getting input from the device (like keyboard).
  • Create a Lego-style proximity-based splitscreen, so that if the players are near, then splitscreen is turned off, otherwise splitscreen is enabled.
  • And many other things!


We only actively update the package for the most recent engine version (but of course we provide e-mail support for older versions too).
