Second monitor resolution issue

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am trying to use a second monitor that has a low resolution 1024x768 (this is actually the monitor of the vrinsight CDU II). Unfortunately, it seems that Prepar3d V2 has a minimum resolution of 1024x1280x32 for the second display. I've tried to edit the config file with:

 

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680.0.1]
Mode=1024x768x32  

 

But prepar3d simply ignores it and reverts back to the original 1024x1280x32.

 

Does anybody know what I should do to have Prepar3d recognize the lower resolution?

 

Thanks

I have dual displays here as well. #1 is a 42" HDTV via HDMI cable, #2 is a 27" wide-screen monitor:

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti.0.0]
Mode=1920x1080x32
[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti.0.1]
Mode=1280x800x32

This was "auto-detected" by Prepar3D when I installed it...

Thanks for the answer. For reasons unknown to me prepar3d doesn't recognize the right resolution.

I'm running 2 video cards and 3 monitors, with "mystery" 737 at locked 20fps smooth.

 

#1 is 6600Ti driving a 42" TV at 1680 x 1050

 

#2 is 4600GTX driving a 19" at 1280x1024 and a 17" at 1024x768

Frankly? It sucks wind. But, I knew that going in. Had I not had to spend $1100 on my mouth, I'd have a GTX780 installed by now... :(

 

With the included GA I am getting reasonable (20-25) fps in high density areas such as the custom Norfolk area L-M included.
