Re your vid


..Great series of X-Plane vids...I think;

1.  We all would benefit from your publishing your system specs with each vid so that most of we Simmers with fewer resources, don't develop unreasonable expectations ., and;

2.  In my three screen set up, my mouse never showed up so I had no access to the controls of my aircraft or any menus via the mouse.


A.Thanks to you, and others I figured out how  to work around my three screen setup missing the mouse cursor(thankfully my middle screen is a touchscreen so I was able to access the menus via my phelanges). 


 l checked on my set up and temporarily set it for one monitor ...at that point I saw windowed operation which never showed up before in three monitor -45,0, +45° offsets for a total of 135°. I accepted that, and my one monitor temporary set up in deed showed my mouse cursor.!

Choosing Windowed mode on the one screen, I proceeded to RE-SETUP for Three Screens again, thinking  that one Windowed screen would allow me the cursor on three screens.


Re-activating my wing screens DRAT...NO WINDOWED OPTION AVAILABLE....


 Went back to one monitor and was again presented with the "Windowed Option"...I gave up.


nonetheless proceeding with rhe RE-activation of my wing monitors to -45,0, +45° offsets, everything looked glorious...EXCEPT...NO CURSOR IN THE MIDDLE...double drat!!!  ...BUT...


Looking to my left, I had a menu...AND a mouse cursor!!!! No menu OR mouse cursor in the middle, but hey I'll settle for that...next...we shall see if I can operate my controls...


posting this to Avsim as well under X-Plane category.


I hope this helps those trying out X-Plane 11 Beta with three screen setup.
