Capcom gives us a split-screen workaround for Resident Evil 5 on Steam

0

Not ideal, but it's something

In an odd turn of events, split-screen play was not officially supported for the PC version of Resident Evil 5 during the recent migration of GWFL to Steam. It was in the code, ready to be used, and a fan-mod made it possible in the prior release. But on Steam, it was hard-locked, with Capcom basically responding to fans by saying: "tough."

After much pressing Eurogamer has gotten its hands on a proven method for split-screen play, and you can find the instructions below. It's odd that Capcom wouldn't make the effort to support the feature in this clearly still-popular game, but there you have it.

How to play Resident Evil 5 in splitscreen via GFWL version on Steam [Eurogamer]

*Please note though that this won't be an officially supported version and is not compatible with the recent Steam release, so you're playing at your own discretion.
  1. From your Steam 'LIBRARY' list, right-click on Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5 and select 'Properties'
  2. Select the 'BETAS' tab.
  3. Select "original - Original GFWL version" from the pull-down menu and click CLOSE.
  4. Wait for the Steam client to finish downloading the GFWL build.
  5. Launch Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5.
