The problem as in that it doesn't work. One player gets to appear as they wish, and the other doesn't. I don't know if this was intended or not, but I do know I don't like it. Thats like the only problem I have with this game. Naughty Dog did an awesome job, as always, so this is my only complant.
Can't the second player access their customization settings just the same? Or are you talking about a bug that changes the second player's apperance? I think I've witnessed such a bug, but I thought nothing of it at the time.
I had the same problem.
If I played as the second player in split screen, it didn't matter which custom skin I tried to use, I always reverted back to the basic fist T shirt white guy.
I got around it by using character skins, which seem to work okay.
For some reason, most of the custom characters I run into are wearing the default jacket. Also, my character never shows up with his custom equipment, does anyone else have a similar issue?
Maybe this is a bug, but when my brother signs in with his account in split-screen, he can't use his custom character, but rather the same one I have.
Same exact thing happens to me an my brother. It totally makes the custom characters useless for player two.
