Cannot get 2x1900 (3800x1060 res) on FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow simmers!

My rig has arrived and not being used to WIN10, or twin monitors for that matter.  I cannot get FSX to span across both monitors in full view mode. Don't know where to start, but here's my setup:

1. WIN10 Installed, FSX with both SP installed (nothing else really at this point).

2. GeForce GTX770 Display card

3. LG Flatron E2211 (monitors) drivers installed

4. In the NVIDIA Control panel I've set the "Surround Display" Mode. Which makes the desktop behave like there's two monitors. But I only see the taskbar on one of the screens

Any suggestions?

Regards

Currently not focusing so much on the issue, want to get the FPS up first. But using the Surround Display mode doesn't seem the way to go, it garbles the screen completely... so no go there...

Going to do the "standard" FSX tweaks before I continue, get my graphics and FPS in order...

Will report :)

I has finally dawned on me that this is no cakewalk. TripleHead2Go seems to be the "standard" solution in the old days. You simply cannot "stretch" a FSX view beyond its preset resolutions without help from the OS or the HW!

A novel slap in the face really :huh:

Have been looking at the sticky post on 3 monitors, will continue from there...

SOLVED!!

It was actually very easy. My only excuse is that I haven't configured double monitors using Surround Display:

No go there... Hmmm!

This was the fix:

1. Use NVIDIA Control panel to set up Surround displays

1a. Check BEZEL using the on-screen tool.

1b.Check resolution, worked with "Bezel Corrected" (3985x1080 in my case)

2. Change resolution in FSX to your Bezel corrected res.: 3985x1080x32

I'm a bit embarrassed actually, hastily asking for help while not even checking out youtube videos...
