any way to play co op games on two diff screens?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am trying to get my willing wife into play games with me on my pc. but having to share a 27 inch monitor is hard. but I do have another 24 inch monitor. is there a way to play co op games like cod or bf3 on two monitors? this way we each have our own screen to pkay on. has anyone done this?

As far as i know, I don't think its possible to have a configuration like you want with COD or BF3.

The game would have to specifically support that, and I've never heard of one that does.

PC games in general aren't good or meant for split screen play anyways.

I think I read about someone doing this with lfd2 or something. I googled "dual monitor split screen" and got this: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1857198

oh well. looks like there is a way for one game. but I need to download and run a few diff apps to make it work. even for my kids I have lego lord of the rings, but they don't like having to share the one screen. it is very hard to play when the screen tilts and turns to try and keep the two players in the center. I wish could let them each use a screen.
than anyways.
if anyone else has some help I would love to read it.
