Those of us who spent countless hours with GoldenEye’s multiplayer mode remember cramming close to our buddies for some split-screen action. Nary a game would go by without accusations of screen sniping and other forms of cheating, but to tell the truth, sometimes it was downright impossible to not catch a glimpse of what was going on with other players. Now, 26 years later, we finally have a way to keep things fair.

A special setup at the Centre of Computing History in Cambridge has finally solved the issue of screen sniping in GoldenEye with a four-TV solution. It appears that these four TVs are getting the same single from one N64, but the screens are each zoomed in on a different player’s screen. It’s a pretty ingenious solution, but it’s one you’ll need the right hardware and technical know-how to achieve!

You can check out this Frankenstein of a solution for yourself by attending the 25th Anniversary of GoldenEye 007 event this Saturday (May 7th) at the Centre of Computing History.

This is wonderful. So great. Those are some serious CRTs! Having a professional monitor would be so nice
