Game Engine - Player positions


my game.config file contains

However, when I run the Game Engine

Which player is which?

Hello @thinus in this case, the 1 represents player with id 1 and the 2 represents player with id 1. So according to the console output you are the player with id 2. This is most likely due to a config value in the game-engine.config called RACER_PLACEMENT_SORTING being set to 0 (position players alphabetically) or 1 (position players in reverse alphabetic order). You can prevent this by changing that value to -1 then the game-engine will behave like before and order players according to “player A” and “player B” in the game-runner.config. In our latest starter pack released today we have set the default back to -1 to avoid confusion as in this case.
