Dual monitor problems

Recommended Posts

I run 2 monitors and in FSW I am having an issue.  Running the sim is causing it to render the sim on both monitors.  1st monitor is showing the sim properly, 2nd monitor is blacked out but causes the framerate to drop in half.  If I put the sim in Windowed mode it works properly.

Anyone else having this issue?

You have to give more info. video card, SLI or not, do you have widescreen enabled etc?

There is no option in FSW for widescreen, the only options are your resolution and whether you want multi monitor, which I have disabled.

Didn't make a difference.  I am not running SLI by the way.

So what you are trying to do is Sim on one monitor and instruments on the other?

No only sim on 1 monitor. Only way it works that way is windowed mode

Not sure if you are understanding what is going on here. In FSX,P3D or XP with my monitor configuration the sim is only displayed on monitor 1 while the 2nd monitor just displays the desktop.

In FSW the sim is displayed on monitor 1, Monitor 2 is blacked out.  So the issue here is with FSW.

I do understand now, so FSW is running in windowed mode in one and the other is blacked out if so have tried to drag the sim to the other monitor? it also might be the way FSW UI was created. unfortunately, I run mine in 3 monitors in SLI bezeled configuration.

The issue is only in fullscreen mode.  In windowed mode it works properly.

If you open Nvidia CP on the top menu right click on desktop, what you have on dropdown menu?

I did a test here on my and FSW takes over all 3 monitor 1 for the sim the other are blacked out, if this is like P3D it has a setting to black or to show the desktop. not sure if can be inserted into the FSW.cfg file.

I actually was looking at the 2 configs side by side and I added what was in my P3D config. Sadly it didn't fix the issue.

Other users on the Steam page are reporting the same issue so It's something DG are more than likely going to have to figure out.

Back to P3D for me for now.

I thought that too but there are many changes in FSW, I would post a wish list here, I am sure they are reading everything.

good luck.
