Borderlands 2 PC Split Screen?
this is probably more a question for the devs but...
Will there be split screen in the sequel? (in the PC version).
I was kind of disappointed that the first game on PC didn't include split screen because I know many people are interested in it and I would really have loved playing it with a friend on one PC. Besides you built the game on the Unreal Engine 3 which makes it really easy to include the split screen. So why wasn't it implemented?
I was just reading this article on co-optimus in which Paul Hellquist talked about the co-op features and the split screen, so please tell me split screen is a feature on the PC as well!
Please take into consideration that many people want this feature (just look for the people searching for a split screen on the PC version and people trying to accomplish it by running the game twice and going to lan mode)
Can someone from Gearbox PLEASE confirm or deny this? If it doesn't have split screen on PC I won't be buying it so it's important to know. Don't let the game release before we know for sure. Thanks.
Hi, huge fan here!! I donīt want anyone from GEARBOX to deny this, I would like for someone at GEARBOX just to confirm this please!
theres is no logical reason why you are giving this feature to console kids and not to us! and please dont get all "Remedy" on us, stating that we need a big sofa or a big screen tv to play split screen :j
cant we buy xbox360 pads for windows?
cant we buy big screen monitors?
cant my PCroom be big enough for 2 people?
cant I move my PC to the living room where the huge ass sofa is?
either way Im still playing way much better on PC than consoles
Iīm paying for the game just like any of those guys...I want the complete experience just like them!
desable the keyboard/mouse on split mode and force us to use pads, but dont take this feature away from us like you did the first time, cause that was just BS!
best regards, and the game looks kick ass FTW, keep up the awesome work!
PD. me and my brother will thank you for it
Amusingly enough? The 60" (yes, sixty inch) flatscreen television in my livingroom? Accepts DVI input (and my PC has a DVI output). And we have TWO comfy couches in front of it.

Steam have seen enough people using their PC's for gaming on their TV's to warrant them creating a new UI to make steam more usable. (Cant wait, current interface is terrible on a TV!). Many of the graphics cards have HDMI outputs, and many TV's have DVI inputs, if HDMI on the graphics card isn't available.
Some local co-op games have even managed to use multiple keyboard/mice setups. Not all that difficult, as they have different GUIDs the same way that a controller has a different GUID for each device/player. Failing additional KBM's, the Xbox 360 controller works quite nicely.
After spending 50 hours in the past couple of weeks playing Dungeon Defenders on the PC on a 50" TV with my partner, we would both really like to play Borderlands 2 in split screen co-op together. The only games we play are local co-op on the PC (Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Trine2, etc) or on the Wii. We didn't buy any of the other current consoles due to the lack of local co-op gaming.
Try Dungeon Defenders with two people co-op and go on-line. A fantastic example of a great game mode, and really well done, even though it limits the second player to using the controller and not an additional keyboard/mouse. It sounds like Borderlands would have something similar to this the consoles. Of note, you can have 4 player local co-op on DD, and still host a game. PC's are good at stuff like that.
New local co-op games are usually a release day purchase for us. It seems like the meaning of 'social gaming' has been lost on many people and people consider 'social gaming' is just playing on-line. No one else remember lugging a CRT to a LAN party or playing on the sofa with a friend?
Many naysayers suggest performance issues for the reason not to do it. I always remember those posts when I see Portal 2 running at 200+FPS in split screen when v-sync is disabled....
Also, speaking from first-hand experience, there are DVI-to-HDMI adapters (and vice versa) available, quite inexpensively.
