Dual Monitor Question

Recommended Posts

I just set up a second monitor and am having problems. I have a Visiontek GForce TI4600 card. Moth monitors are working fine in the Windows XP environment, but in FS2K2 it gets weird. I sometimes can drag my mouse over to the other monitor, but I can't drag any panels over. I'm not using the nView that came with the card, I read bad things about that, I've just set it up through Windows. Any ideas?Boyd BarkerSenior Command CaptainBOS Hub ManagerWestWind AirlinesTry my DF737 Checklist at http://home.houston.rr.com/checklist/checklist.html

Well the only thing I can think of that causes me trouble is,1) Having FS2K2 in full screen will cause you not to be able to move from one monitor to the other.2) Did you right click on the panel you want to move and "undock" it so you can move it over.Not sure if that is any help or not. Good luck.http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifRC3 - Just gotta' have it!http://www3.telus.net/dport1/Radar_small.gifhttp://www3.telus.net/dport1/dansig.jpg

Seems the moderators of this forum don't like me. Anyway, right click and "undock" the views you want to drag, then you should be able to drag them over.

Another trick is if you can't get the mouse pointer over to monitor 2, drag it to the right edge of the screen until it expands, and then left click it.Also, if certain key commands don't work, left click anywhere on Monitor 1Bob (Lecanto, Fl)AMD, Athlon XP, 1800+MSI, K7T266 XP ProPC 2100 DDR, 1024 MBXP, Home Edition Elsa GLadiac 920, GF3/64Mb andPNY, Verto nVidia TNT 2-M64/32WD, 100 MB, 7200, Ultra 100Sound Blaster, Audigy MP3+CH Prod, VPP Yoke - Sound CardCH Prod, Pedals - Sound Card

Good Deal! I bet you're wondering how you ever managed with only one monitor now aren't you??? ;-) I know I am ;-)

I find that I only have that problem when FS is full screen. When FS is run in a window, the mouse moves to the other screen no problems.

Guys,you can very well drag the mouse over to another moitor in fullscreen mode without any work arounds.In FS open your display settings.In the graphics adaptor section you should have three entries (if you are using a 2 monitor setup) which look like this:Primary grphics adaptor/Display1/Nvidia.../Display2/Nvidia...Choose the display1 entry instead of primary. Click o.k. and you should have no probs to move the mouse over even in fullscreen.Alex

I have a similar ti4600 128 MB.In full screen mode, if I find sometimes the mouse pointer will not move to the second monitor (where I usually keep undocked windows for the gps, throttle quadrant, and radio stack), I have found that if I move the pointer to the extreme edge of the primary monitor's full screen display, the pointer will change to the left right arrow. While the pointer is showing the left right arrow, I left click. Then the pointer will move freely to the secondary monitor.Larry
