How do I play multiplayer offline?
Nov 1 2008, 11:44 AM EDT | Post edited: Nov 1 2008, 11:44 AM EDT
So I was able to play 2 players offline once by accident and now I can't figure out how to do it again. I have 2 controllers plugged in and I push start and every other button on the second one and nothing happens. Also I can't seem to find any menu option to allow a second player to join. What am I doing wrong? I can't find anything in the manual to tell me how to get a second player to join.

I can get online multiplayer to work just fine but I'd really like my wife and kids to be able to play together. Please help!

i also forgot to say. when u are ready to play a level,go to play on your own and that means who ever is on the ps3 can play

this does not work for me. But my 2nd controllers are a NYKO and a Logitech, does LBP not support these controllers?

I followed your directions, could I be missing anything else?

I did try that too.

I had the NYKO controller on before I started the game, when that didn't work I turned the Logitech on during the game.

Can you play multiplayer on ANY board or does it only allow you starting at a certain board? ie - 3 tutorial boards in the beginning.

Unlike online, offline multiplayer allows people to jump in whenever the bloody hell they feel like. Given they have a controller, of course.

Really, why get third party controllers at all? Tsk tsk. You would think you'd learn your lesson after Guitar Hero 3 had massive issues.

Well, I tried to start the game using the 3rd party controllers (which I bought for $10 each, thats why I got them and they work with all my other games) and LBP will not allow me past the My Pod screen without the Sony PS3 Controller.

So to play multiplayer, you need Sony PS3 controllers only.

Ok, I just read through several forums to finally found the solution to this.

First, you start playing 2 players as soon as the pod is up. The intro part where u run through the developers is only 1 player I believe.

Second, this is a third party controller issue. I have an original Sony PS3 controller and a logitech wireless controller. The Logitech wireless controller does no work with LBP at first. I troubleshooted by using the Sony controller first which was fine and then tried the logitech one which the game did not respond to it (only the main menu button worked).

And lastly, the solution is to plug your PS3 into the network and update the firmware using the system update option. After that's done, load the game and it will tell you the game itself needs to be updated. After you update the game, the logitech controller will work and you can play 2 players.
