Just curiousif anyone knew if there was an emulator program to run two instances of windows at once or to run two games at once.

My problem is most of my friend’s wont build a gaming computer or just can’t afford one. I have enough horsepower with my computer to run two games at once, regardless of what it is.

I want to hook up two keyboards, two mice, two monitors and have someone right next to me playing on my machine with me. Almost as if the computer is acting as server, doing all the work for you.

I have everything, to do this, including two video cards, (not SLI or CF). I wont go in depth of what the computer has for hardware.

Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Sounds like since you have 2 video cards, just build another system with maybe lower specs, something dual core, 2 gb of ram and a decent vid card and vista or xp for your friends. Then have your own mini network setup and your computer host it. However I think games like madden and nba live, hockey etc. Like games you can use controls on, I think you can just use 2 usb controls. That's what I used to do when I didn't want a console.

two monitors will do just assign the game to which display, but you will also have problems wiff controllers. If you have a gaming mouse and key board you'll be able to assign the controller with that software. and the other mouse will use a standard driver. However I think you'll still have problems. Most videos card are equipped wiff software for two monitors
