thats a great video, can you please share us the size of the monitors you have and if a triple display may affect the fps (excuse my illiteracy in high tech stuff :smile: ).

Ha yes, I flew with a single monitor for about one month before I moved to three screens and Nvidia Surround. I would never be able to fly with a single monitor again. There is a slight fps loss (more noticeable over heavy autogen etc), but its a great feeling to scan the horizon, left to right while flying over the Amazon at sunset, for example.

Very nice, especially the added rain effects on the TurbinDuke when your looking to the right Monitor, very good

I am also interested in your zoom settings. I have 3x24s" with the biggest issue being what to do about the center bezel. I wish someone would/could develop a 3-monitor setup that looks like a single, bezel less monitor.

Looks great but not certain about ya take off  :Tounge:

 

What zoom level is running please?

 

Cloudy

Thanks just having fun :smile: The zoom for this aircraft on my system is 0.47. I also use the shift - / shift + /  ctrl shift backspace  and enter

 

Takeoff had me lol.

 

Nice set up though 

In my defence I had a Iphone 6S plus in front of my eyes  :P  I as trying to duplicate what I see when turn left/right.

The zoom is aircraft and display specific, for this craft I use 0.47 and also adjust left/right and sideways to hide the bezel over the airplane pillar.

 

That is pretty nice. Overall resolution is what?

with bezel comp. is 7992 x 1600 those are 3 30" 16.10 @ 2560 x 1600 each

Great video. I loved my trips....until I met my Oculus Rift ;)

I watch Froogle on this one, my problem with it is how to operate the rest of the sim. Throttles landing gear buttons, radio CDU and so on. for me is even more complicated, I have two PCs for my Sim and 2 other displays one a touch for my maps etc. perhaps when they come out with a gloves to guide you to them :smile:

 personally don't have this problem as my cards have enough memory to cope with this res. memory is very important when  using this kind of res. as you can see in this video it eats up a lot of memory. and this is not the worse. Try some from Aerosoft or FSDT it eats up almost all the 6,000mb.

 

Looks great.

 

nebojsa

Thanks :smile:

Your vid looks great.

Do you use 1 wide view or 3 seperate views ( --> to avoid the stretching at the sides ) ?

No just one FSX-SE installation,  I was always curious about using wideview http://www.wideview.it/wideview.htm  but to lazy to set up. I do use multiple PC though :smile: 

Freakin' awesome!!!

Thanks, just having fun :smile:

I'm using over the last years a three monitor combination (left 22", middle 40" , right 22"), presently under P3Dv3.1 and with HD resolution, stretching the screen. My FPS are between 20 up to 60 and more (depends of used aircraft).

 

The idea behind that is following:

 

- Basis is the eyepoint mode (my eyepoint position in relation the the screens)

- Zooming the main screen (middle) to a value, where I can read the device indications like in the aircraft

- Additional information, which I need during from the left and right side is less important than from the center, it helps for better orientation

 

Yako

Ha. Funny to have found this.

 

I just gave up on triple monitor setup and the many annoyances it brings...

 

Just purchased a shiny new 34" ultra wide Dell that will be my main simming monitor from now on...

Yeh and I tried 2 x 34" curved and didn't work for me.  It has to be 3 x 16.10  30"  2560 x 1600 or higher.

 

here is the alabeo P32

Well, don't see why anyone would choose two monitors with the bezels straight in the middle of your face...

 

The video above looks nice, and I suppose angled correctly and with proper/patient setup it would be ok, but don't have room for that size atm, and I just really really liked the immersion of the single screen dell...

 

Also you're right about the height, I think 3 1080p's are way too short and "narrow" as total to make it nice. 1440p was really good, and thought about just getting a bit 4K tv, but that opens up another can of works about quality as a monitor, necessary GPU(s) to drive it, and bottom line I think the dell with it's size, resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio was my goldilocks solution, paired with a new 980Ti

Can't wait to start building it these coming days :)

Yeh you are correct the bezel in the center did it. I thought about getting a third one but I thought would be way to long and narrow, and would be impossible to correct the distortion without using the addon "WIDEVIEW"  my issue with the single  display is I like to turn my head left/right  and having a 160 degrees of viewing is the best for me. I absolutely hate Track IR  and that why I think for a desktop set up  3 displays is the way to go.   :smile: 

good luck with your new display.
