well, the only way I know how to do a splitscreen is to make a ton of different active objects. You have to make all the obstacle backdrops be active objects, make 2 active objects per object(1 for 1st player screen and one for 2nd player). Then you have to move the X,Y coordinates of everything on a screen instead of using regular scrolling.

The only other way to do this is to use a splitscreen extension that I've never heard of.

I don't know how in TGF, but in MMF it's possible by using the Sub-Application extension.

make two applications, in one put the two players with whatever movement you want, but make the screen scroll just follow player one. in the other application again put the two players, this time with a static movement, and make the scroll center now on player 2.
the idea is to always make an ini save the positions of the objects of window one and make window 2 load them

Is the 'always' condition fast enough to do that? Because... that's awesome =p

Julian, you're almost right, but you dont need ini.

Just save the x position to a Global Value, and the y position to another Global Value. Do the same with the player direction and animation.

ugh, using inis is terrible especially if it's constant

i think it would be cool if you could pass variables to windows to share back and forth

 
Mr Icekirby says so!

I think you can using the global function object. Unfortunately, once that's in your app anyone can pass variables to that window(hence hacking it).

Player1SubApp sends x(320) y(240) to Player2SubApp
Player2SubApp adjusts position.

Hackprogram sends create shot to subapp
Hackprogram sends x(player2xpos + y(player2ypos) to Player2SubApp
*shot kills player 2*
