Hi.
I would like to have a zelda-like movement behavior, with two players on the same keyboard, each player controlling his own character.
What is the best way to do this?

Okay, so I just made a quick example using two top-down characters using the default 8-direction control. One of them is set to the default arrow controls, and the other one has default turned off and is using the keyboard + simulate.

Keep in mind that some keyboard can only detect a certain number of inputs at max. So you might want to have other controls if possible
Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

aphrodite is correct as usual.
there are limitations on how many simultaneous keystrokes a keyboard can detect.
i do not think this will work the way you want it.

Thanks for the example !
Yes you are right about the keyboard limitations. I think I'll look toward another controller, like a gamepad.
