Question two cameras??? - 05-12-2010, 05:15 PM

i want to make a game where there is a line down the middle of the screen and two people are at the computer keyboard (one person use w,s,a,d and the other using arrow keys) but i don't know how to create 2 cameras so each person controls their own character on the screen. i don't know is this is possible. please help. (the game will be like COD splitscreen.)

Sorry but Alice does not have the option to have more than one camera. The only thing you can do is to have an overview of the entire world and have different keyboard keys control the different people so you can both move at the same time.

Didn't someone make a program where you could have two alice worlds running and have different camera angles on each one showing the same thing? I think I should search for it.


I'm a web developer/ designer now.

It wouldn't work because only one world could be viewed/accessed at a time. This would be useful across a network for multiplayer, but not for split-screen which is what he is asking for. Even if there is a way to do it, I don't think that this user is experienced enough to use it without help from other people.

Dameria, Stop bringin up a technology still under development. The future of any Alice network multiplayer game is still uncertain. We still need to figure out aditional things. Although through a bit of thinking right now I have figured out one way but it would make your computer vulnerable to atack. I do also now know a way of making an instant mesenger.

Well we can use that instant messenger idea as a chat through multiplayer games. Why can't I bring up the multiplayer technology? Other people have the right to know what is being researched, its not like it is yours only, or only for a select group. Maybe someone else will read this and decide to work on it themself, and they will be the one to solve the Alice multiplayer problem.
