New game idea - split screen

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Sep 15, 2014 11:17 am

Hi
I've had an idea for a local multiplayer game using a split screen approach - i.e. both players play the same level but one screen on top of another (if that makes sense!). Would this sort of thing be possible in Construct 2?

Thanks
Matthew

Yes. and the best way is to Use multiplayer plugin. Will require internet to connect both players.
If you mean sharing keyboard... why would you do this????

I have my tv be the host which shows the gameplay and 2 cell phones the peers which is the controls... lots of fun.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!

Hi both
Thanks for the help - that's really useful. I was thinking about sharing a keyboard so that it would be more of a game that two people could play at home with a competitive element - will think about Internet though!
