Is there a way to do split screen multiplayer on two monitors?

For games like Dirt 3, Trackmania, etc. that have split screen multiplayer can I play with a buddy if I hook another monitor up and we each get a screen? Is this even possible?

I couldn't find anything on google. So, it must not be able to work.

Yea same here. I saw that some guy got Borderlands 2 to work, but it looks like a lot of work. I think the best solution is to just play on a large TV instead using the built in split screen.

Borderlands 2 works like that because one of the devs went and figured it out and released it as a mod when the game came out. People were disappointed that the PC version didn't have local multiplayer, so he decided to build it himself.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

depends on the game. i know that l4d2 and portal 2 can do that with some tweeking. but yeah takes a bit of effort.
