  • Go back and click Download. When Nucleus asks to add the game, click Yes and browse to the game executable. Most Steam games will be in C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\. Some games will have their real .exe stashed away in a folder called bin or binaries.

  • If you already have the game handler (.js) inside Nucleus Co-op handlers folder you can click Search Game to add the game to Nucleus Co-op or you can automatically add games by clicking Auto Search Game and selecting the drive and path you want to add games from.

  • You can also download the handlers from the website handlers hub, then in Nucleus Co-op select Extract Handler or Extract Existing, choose the .nc file you downloaded and add the game.

  • Once your game is added, select it in the Nucleus Co-op UI and assign the input devices to parts of the screen by dragging the devices. The input devices icons will show and light up when they receive input (maintain a button press for controllers). Change the layout of each screen by clicking the icon in the top-left corner of each screen, if you have multiple monitors connected they will show in the UI.

  • Read the handler author's notes below the game cover, read them carefully as they contain important information related to the handler functionality.

  • Follow the game handler notes to connect the games together.
