GoldenEye 007, a first-person shooter by Rare that was released in 1997 on the Nintendo 64, is best known for its multiplayer mode where up to four players can battle it out via split-screen. When these matches took place, there was normally some screen cheating, but what if you could split the gameplay up into four different screens? The UK’s Center for Computing History did just that.
4 screen GoldenEye on the original N64 hardware! No screencheating here! …but how?

This four screen mod will probably eliminate most unfair camping and sniping tactics, but considering the resolution is 320×237 pixels on each of them, things will not be any clearer for anyone. There’s no word yet on if the Center for Computing History will release this mod to the public, although they do plan on showcasing it on May 7th, 2022 for their “25 Years of GoldenEye Dev Talk Evening” event, which unfortunately is completely booked. Now beating GoldenEye 007 with a single bullet is an entirely different story.
