Features in 2Take1 are arranged in submenus and categorized in three tabs (Local, Online and Spawn). When you load the menu for the first time, you will see a tutorial explaining how to navigate through the menu; press Num Enter to go through it.
You can also check the controls below. Besides, 2Take1 offers limited support for controller, although you have to enable it manually.
Make sure you have Num Lock enabled on your keyboard, and then use the following keys:
- Num - to open or close the menu.
- Num 5 to select a feature or enter a submenu.
- Num 0 to go back.
- Num 8 and Num 2 to move up and down.
- Num 4 and Num 6 to change the value of a feature.
- Num 7 and Num 9 to move between tabs.
- F9 to save your settings.
- F12 to uninject (hold for 1 second).
Enable Controller Support, close the menu with keyboard, and then use the following buttons to navigate through the menu:
- RT + → to open or close the menu.
- A to select a feature or enter a submenu.
- B to go back.
- ↑ and ↓ to move up and down.
- ← and → to change the value of a feature.
- LB and RB to move between tabs.
If you want to use other keys to control the menu, or if you have a keyboard without a numeric pad, you can change these keys. However, due to technical limitations, it is not possible to change the controller binds.
Location and hardware lock#
When you log into the Popstar launcher for the first time, your HWID (short of Hardware ID) and your public IP address are sent to the Popstar server and registered into your account. Every time you log into the launcher in the future, your HWID and IP will be checked against the server; this is a security measure aimed to prevent account sharing, which is strictly prohibited as stated in our Terms of Service.
If you change your computer or important components of it, your HWID will change and 2Take1 will detect that you are running the menu from another PC. 2Take1 allows you to register up to 2 different HWIDs in your account. If you already registered two HWIDs and log in from a third HWID, it will replace the HWID that you registered in the first place.
A registered HWID is able to log into your account from any IP address. However, if you log in from a different HWID, your current IP address will be checked against the last IP address that was registered in your account:
- If the IP addresses match, you will be able to log in right away, and no further IP checks will be made from that HWID.
- If the IP addresses differ and 3 hours have passed since the last time you used 2Take1, you will be able to log in as well.
- However, if you used 2Take1 within the last 3 hours, you will have to wait a few hours until you are able to log back.
See use cases below.
2Take1 allows you to use the menu on two computers at the same time, as long as they are connected to the same physical network.
However, if you are using a VPN connection on either PC, make sure that both are connected to the same VPN server; as an alternative, you may set up a VPN bridge on your home network and connect both computers to it.
You used 2Take1 from your laptop at home, and now you want to bring it to your parent's house.
You will be able to use 2Take1 from your parent's house at any time. Since the HWID is the same, the public IP address does not need to be checked.
You used 2Take1 from your desktop at home, and now you want to use it on your new laptop also at home, before you bring it to your parent's house.
You will be able to use 2Take1 without issues. Since the IP address is the same, the cooldown does not apply. Once the laptop HWID is registed, you will be able to use it anywhere at any time.
You used 2Take1 from your desktop and laptop, and you are replacing the motherboard on your desktop because it stopped working.
You will be able to use 2Take1. However, since this is a new HWID and you already registered two on your accout (your laptop, and your desktop with the defective motherboard), one of those HWIDs will be removed from your account; namely, the HWID that was registered in first place.
