P3D and multi screens

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm ready to get back into the flight sim game. I'm excited about getting a new system that will run P3D to the max! (or as close as physically possible today)

 

I have a question though regarding one of the main issues that led me away from flight simming in the first place several years ago.....and that's screen real estate.. or lack there of.

 

My aim is to avoid all the panning and preset view buttons that overburdened my last FSX setup. I find the most enjoying part of flight simming is the feeling of actually being in the cockpit and looking around at the scenery and the flight controls.

 

I'm looking for a 3 monitor horizontal setup for that immersive panoramic scenery view (3-24" 16:10 ratio screens) with a 4th 24" screen directly below the center to give me the vertical real estate needed to view the controls while in flight and not have to pan around to see the instruments, particularly when landing. All this in one seemless Virtual Cockpit view and not broken into multi view windows.

 

Is this possible in P3d v2.3? Did I explain myself well enough?

 

Many Thanks,

 

Jim

Hi

I have a 2 video cards + 7 monitors system.

With the new 2.3 panel save feature I can load up any pre configured view setup easly.

 

I could now never go back to FSX.

I run three 24" monitors with a 5920x1080x32 resolution. I haven't fully tested P3D 2.3 yet (just installed yesterday), but 2.2 was running fine FPS wise.

FPS drop when flying in heavy cloud conditions, but it still amangeable and I may have yet to learn more graphic settings tweaks.

 

Hey raork, where is the new 2.3 panel save feature?

Not sure about the 4th monitor (if you mean extending the view of the top 3 down). Not sure how that could work.

 

Also, you still have distorted views on the side monitors just like FSX.

Yes that's what I was referring too, dropping the 4th down for one big fully synced view.. just like real life!

 

Or can you have 3 view in surround (VC) and a static 4th view of the panel controls? Last time I tried this several years ago Nvidia drivers won't let you do that, it was all surround or nothing. Also would I need multiple video cards?

No, one will do it.

Really? wow that is awesome, are there any utube videos or pics? I've never seen that setup, usually it's 3 across for scenery and 1 or 2 below for 2d panels.
