    Hello Everyone,

    Splitscreen does not work and I wonder why? Is this something that can be programmed into pocketmine? Is there a limitation for why it is not supported? Is it a planned feature?

    If I can get some answers to these questions maybe I can help start on the path to getting this implemented.

    Thanks Joseph

    Microsoft does not allow splitscreen on servers.

    It's intentionally unsupported because of a poor implementation which causes some assumptions about packet immutability to be violated, and also requiring a large amount of changes due to being overengineered. Since these assumptions enable packet caching for enhanced performance, it doesn't make sense to compromise that for the tiny fraction of users who want to play split screen.

    TL;DR: Split screen isn't supported because of an economical tradeoff.
