    A few friends and I were talking about this and I was wondeirng if it is possible?

    We play Red Faction II alot on PS2. When in multiplayer deathmatch, the screen splits to however many controllers are hooked up(via the multiplayer adapter). In our case 4..

    Is it possible to buy or make something that will take the split signals from the PS2 and send them to 4 seperate tvs? Each tv having a seperate player?

    Anyone?

    i don't think you can do it with only one ps2, you can do it with 4 ps2 and 4 ethernet adpters and hook them up in a network though.

    Would we have to link to the skinner-net to do that? Or just network to each other?

    I think sony makes an adapter to do that with up to 4 ps2s.
    They made it for the playstation.

    afaik (never done it) you shouldn't have to hook to the net, just hook all the ps2 together with the ethernet, you may need a router, but not sure.

    I am going to try this... A friend of mine that plays is a network admin and I bet he has a router laying around. When we do, I'll post results! :thumb: Thanks!
