    Was wondering if there is a way to run 2 sets of mice and keyboards on one computer, My friends computer is KIA right now and we still want to play world of warcraft together. I'm running dual monitors and have 2 mice and keyboards connected, 1 set through serial, one set through usb. Is there anyway i can get the 2 to run independently allowing him to control one monitor and me the other?

    any help appreciated in advanced

    ahh ok, i've gotten 2 mice to work before, but i guess getting keyboards as well as them being independant of each other is only a dream... so if anyone wants to start a new project heheh......

    I have been able to get two mice and one time like you said and two joysticks and one time. But, keyboard is a whole new story. There is such a thing as running 2 OS at the same time on one computer and having them on one monitor each. I have seen it done. But, you would have to have really good hardware, like top of the line and getting it setup would take weeks. Plus, I don't even know the process to do it. Sorry, can't help ya.
