I've tried many different things, but I'm working on a map editor and I need to split the screen for my menu and tile selection. Please help.

Blendman has made some windows like controls that would be very useful for you i think.
I know he has a dedicated thread somewhere but if you download his 3D editor you will see where he implements the controls

One of the simplest ways of having a menu
is to use sprites for each item
for example if you have a playSpr

Splitting the screen would just be a matter of having sprites to one side of the screen
and having your map editor on the other side.

you could also use SetSpriteVisible(playSpr,0) to turn the sprites visibility off aswell
