Is there anyway to do split screen for multiplayer on the same computer?

Unless you have a very very good dll file that does not require any return value good luck.
Cool basic is not designed to do this!

Good luck finding one!

Splitscreen is not that hard to make, and it has been done several times. The most used technique is to make two images. Then, for both of the images, set drawing to image, CloneCameraposition to one player, draw using drawgame and then draw the pictures. There are (or were, at least) some examples about this on the forums.
