Split-screen local multiplayer?

Post by Gordo » Wed May 05, 2010 12:14 am

I found some mentions of possible, near-future future split-screen local multiplayer in BZFlag as early as version 1.x. This is probably a stupid question, but has that feature been implemented in any form whatsoever?

I don't really see how it'd work anyway. Unless you have a very minimalistic key configuration or some kind of driver for reading multiple HID, it'd be difficult to fit all those controls into a single layout. And cramming the radar, console, etc. into a half screen would require quite the monitor.
