Playing a hotseat game is just like playing a network game, but the two computers are the same (a computer is connected to itself via network). So you start the server once and the client twice, then select "Connect to network game" in both clients.
I can only join three other entities of the client to a game hosted by the fourth. When I try joining a fifth one, it immediately gets disconnected. Why is that?
Does the server send a message? How many player slots do you have in the game?

Ah, I found the "Maximum number of connections per host" option under Networking, which was set to 4.
Thank you for the reply, anyway!

I can implement hotseat mode, I think. Of course, If I found a little spare of time. Firstly: my patch will allow to adding human players in Single Mode lobby screen. Secondly, client will start new client based on path to client (on Unix parameter zero will be used - I don't know what about other systems). Third, client will show on turn begin and hide on turn done. Fourth, I will use libnotify or something similar, so players will get messages about turn begin on ones phone (using KDE Connect).

Actually... if you start a single game with admin-level access, shouldn't it be possible to use /take to simply take over the next player?
