And it would probably a pain to code - for rather limited gain.

I pass up plenty of old systems that are more than capable of running ZDoom. Sometimes they're offered to me for as little as $20, most of the time they are free. Just keep your eyes and ears open.

yeah it's true for that...I get tonz of old computers lol I have a computer I made from scraps and its 800mhz, didnt spend a dime on it.
but as a feature for zdoom, i'd think it's a bit worth going for. not many people know how to network two computers to play lan.
but also, how many people do you think wil split the keys on a keyboard or get two gamepads for a two player game of doom?

there are many ways to look at this.

Yes, it would, (dp)Eclipse. Except he asked this about two weeks before you ever did.

Split screen on a computer sounds like it would be a big problem... I've done this with my brother while playing Frogger and we had some very severe arguements...
Sharing a keyboard for a split screen game is no fun. :glare:
