Your forgetting one thing on the keyboard aspect. hmm, BIOS, if you hook up two keyboards they will act as one. For it to work you would have to go keyboard specific and that is hard to do with a lot of keyboards listed as generic in the driver list.
That is why joy sticks came to be.

Hi,
Yeah, I know. I'm not sure DirectX will allow a game to poll from multiple keyboards though. I suppose you could create multiple keyboard objects, and then you could enumerate all the keyboards so the keyboard objects are not pointing to the same keyboard device. It is theoretically possible, but I don't think it would be worth it in the end. There probably isn't enough people with partners to play against to make such a feature necessary.

I know that several computers have the ability to connect two keyboards; seems that it'd just be a matter of adding the capability into the game itself.
