Issues with 2D cockpit, full screen and 5 monitors (3 matrox)

Recommended Posts

Hello
I have some questions regarding the use of FSX in full screen mode with a Matrox TH card and two other monitors. (See photo 1) - I only uset 2D cockpit

I am currently in windowed mode, but I'm a little disappointed by the performance of FSX (in terms of FPS: average 23, with NickN tweaks, 18.5 if I give up SLI) due to the machine that I put behind .... but I read that the full screen mode is less demanding

Switching from windowed mode to full screen make unusable screens 2 and 3 of the Matrox (see photo 2). In addition, the new display views remains confined to my main display (ASUS screen ... see description below).

In addition I may soon bring in the VRInsight CDU II which will also probably cause problem of full screen (I just return the CDU OpenCockpits is falsely sold as compatible with FSX PMDG 747 ...)

 

What is the procedure/tricks/cfg edition knowing that the expected output is as follows:

  • Main Display: Monitor 1 (display 2): ASUS VW1925+ (1680x1050) on DVI / VGA connector - INSTRUMENTS (and future CDU II)

  • Matrox MTH2Go: Monitors 2 (display 1): 3x PHILIPS Brillance231B 24 inches (but limited to 1680x1050x3) control bezel works well, brings all 3 22 inches, not annoying) on ​​DVI TO VIEW OUTSIDE COCKPIT

  • Monitor 3 (display3) ViewSonic VA2216w (1680x1050) on USB-DVI-VGA converter - FOR OVERHEAD PANEL

Both cards are NVIDIA SLI (only connectors on the map above are functional, hence the use of USB adapter) - Driver Updated

Thank you for your advice

Philippe
