    I want to attach 2 or 3 players each to seperate oculus. How can I set up that. Also how will the display work can each player move his head seperatly or they have to see the same view.

    Somehow I doubt you can. Each occulus is treated as a monitor.. most gpus only support 2. Your best bet is to have 2-3 different computers and treat it as some sort of multiplayer game.

    Using multiple Rifts from the same computer is not supported by OVR at this time.

    L4D2 doesn't support local co-op, so I think that answers that question. :)

    Unless they're using a lot of custom homebrew software/hardware, it isn't going to happen on the same computer.

    Your best bet would be multible machines over online as I belive you cant use more than one Oculus Rift Per PC

    Does anyone know how that connection works?
    Also I'm not doing a game it's more of a walking experience in a space so it's not graphically intensive. If anyone know knows a way to do multiple ones in one device even if it requires higher specs that would be really helpful. thank you so much guys.

    I belive that as it currently stands you cant do it, I saw a post last week on the unity fourms somewhere, where the same question was asked. As I stated before multiplayer would be your best bet, since you said it was less grathicly intensive, you could by lower spec systems for the same price. depending on what you want to do, you may even be able to get away with not having such a grathicly intensive program.
