Exclusive Input Mode

Exclusive Input Mode prevents more than one person using the mouse at a time.  It gives mouse control priority to the host in all situations. Prior to 6/19/2109, this functionality also applied to the keyboard, but that changed with version 149-5.

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.

The priority order for input control is as follows.

  1. The person physically at the host machine
  2. The host remotely connected to their own PC or cloud computer
  3. Friends
