Exclusive Input Mode

Exclusive Input Mode prevents more than one person using the keyboard and mouse at a time.  It also gives mouse and keyboard control priority to the host in all situations.

You can find the Exclusive Input Mode in the hosting settings section, on the host computer.

This makes it easy for the host to regain control if one of their friends starts trolling with the mouse and keyboard.
