Editors' review

Controlling multiple computers from a single keyboard and mouse is old hat, but how about a software solution that lets two or more users operate a single PC at the same time, each controlling his own cursor from his own keyboard and mouse? That's what WunderWorks' TeamPlayer does. You simply connect the additional hardware to your computer, and TeamPlayer recognizes it and places extra cursors on the screen. Potential uses include education and training, multiplayer gaming, security and monitoring, and distributed applications.

TeamPlayer takes advantage of software developed to let programmers add multiuser functionality to a wide range of applications, so it's flexible and easy to use but robust and reliable in multiuser environments. The program detected all applicable devices and placed onscreen cursor for each mouse, replacing the primary cursor with a small red square. Each device functioned normally, even a Wacom pen with absolute positioning, though its cursor did jump to the primary cursor when released. Clicking a system tray icon accesses the TeamPlayer Center for updates as well as a Sandbox game for practice, a welcome addition since TeamPlayer can be used to teach young children how to use the computer under direct supervision. An Exit button quickly restores normal, single-user operation.

To use TeamPlayer, you must have additional keyboards and mice or other cursor-control devices that are compatible with your PC, including drivers and any additional required software; it doesn't make them work, only work together. It provides a unique, software-based collaborative environment on a single Windows PC, and we recommend it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of TeamPlayer 2.2. The trial version is limited to three users.

    "no features"

    April 02, 2012   |   By hotshotsteve

    Version: TeamPlayer 2.2

    Pros

    allows two mice to operate on same PC. This is helpful for me when using dual moniters

    Cons

    No features - cannot right click (no copy/paste, opening web browser in new window). Does not click certain windows or buttons. Also drastically slows my mouse on screen

    Summary

    This is a cool software with potential but needs alot of development to prove itself a viable option and not just a toy.
