[solved] Split screen via Gui & Viewports
Hello,
I got viewports working fine for horizontal split screen.
I added a world and two chr's, it's all displaying fine.

I'm using your viewport example:
// fullscreen split Horiztonal
Gui+=viewport[0].create( Rect_C(0, 1, D.w()*2, D.h()*2), ViewportDraw,(Ptr)0); // create a viewport with 'user=0' to mark camera[0] usage
Gui+=viewport[1].create( Rect_C(0, -1, D.w()*2, D.h()*2),ViewportDraw,(Ptr)1); // create a viewport with 'user=1' to mark camera[1] usage



Now i'm adding the collision detection from the 17. Small Overlays example.


I notice that GUI/Viewports doesn't have as much 3d functionality like Display has.
And I get the feeling, that viewports aren't meant for split gaming (only for GUI).

Esenthel, can you confirm your library support 3d gaming via split screen?
Is there a better way rather then using GUI/Viewports?
Can I use the Display class to achieve split screen?

Hope you can help.
Mike.

You can change the render rect and draw many times.

Code:
cam1.set();
D.viewFov(fov1);
D.viewRect(rect1);
Renderer(Render);

cam2.set();
D.viewFov(fov2);
D.viewRect(rect2);
Renderer(Render);

...

D.viewRect(NULL);
