Instead of wasting 1000 gald there is a free manual manual in the first cottage you see after the sophia/asbel race cutscene.

You don't need a manual manual to make that work.

The manual manual merely enables manual mode. (the ability to move and control in combat without the game auto compensating your distance from a foe to pull off an arte, attack, or skill.)

To enable multi-player combat, simply change any character in the player 2 slot to either semi auto or manual. You can have up to 4 players.

How Tales games figure out what characters are controlled by what controller:

Lets assume the names below are hp gauges in battle. This is how the layout will look.

Asbel Hubert Pascal Malik
Player 1 player 2 Player 3 Player 4

Now lets take a look at the same lineup in the menu

Asbel (player 1)
Hubert ( player 2)
Pascal (player 3)
Malik (player 4)

So if you switch out Hubert for Sophie... that would mean player 2 now controls Sophie in combat.

Sadly, other than mini games and in battle, the game is still 1 player only.
Still, its helpful to have someone dealing that extra spell, or heal when you need it most, instead of always popping up the artes menu, or just having someone to play against in magic carta.

Hope this helps!
