My friend and I like to play two player games on the PC.

As of now we are both using one keyboard to play the games.

Of course there is not a lot of playing room on the small keyboard.

I have have spare keyboard and I am wondering whether or not it is possible to connect two keyboards to one PC using a notebook mouse/keyboard splitter.

Is it possible to connect two keyboards to one PC?

If it is possible, how do I do it?

RZetlin: I dont think it is possible coz I also want to find out a way to use 2 k/boards on a pc.Great for playing games like street fighter games where if both of the players mash the buttons together, the k/board will like "stuck". This is due to the restriction on a k/board. U cant press many keys simultaneosly. The only solution is one of the player must use gamepad or other joypads.

nope
even if you use usb keyboards, it simply wont work.

it's easy to see from the programming pov. when writing a windows game/program (either thru the standard windows messages or thru directinput) there is only one keyboard for the game/program to read from.
