FOLKS, I need your help. Calling on Video Guru's

Recommended Posts

For the past many years, we've had (5) windowed displays in FS2004 providing our outside windows views in our simulator. (2) individual Matrox Triplehead2go boxes ran all these displays off of (1) super computer.

The first Triplehead ran the (3) front views. The second Triplehead ran the (2) side displays. Worked Great!!!

That said, In January of this year 2021, we decided to remove the (3) front displays (including the Triplehead) and replace it with a Samsung 49" CHG so as to remove the unsightly bezels. The front display looks great.

THE PROBLEM: We cannot get the front display to blend with the side displays. Nothing close after many attempts. 

I have provided a image to better explain the past setup to include the new setup. 

Please... Only those who understand zoom levels, angles, and multi-monitor knowledge. Thank you.

Mitch

I previously used (3) 24" panels before moving to a single ultrawide myself. Once I added a 4th monitor to the side (my video card only supported 4 output) while I agree the side view was not as great a transition as the front 3, I do not remember it being so bad either. Are you not able do undock side views and place them on surrounding screens and adjust the zoom levels to compensate? I was using FSX at the time not FS2004. Not sure if they had different capabilities.

Greetings,

I've recently upgraded to a new computer to allow me to run MSFS2020 and had been an FS2004 user since inception.

I ditched my 3 x 27" Samsung 275T's for a new Samsung RG90 49" display and I must say it's great!
Have you tried using the NVIDIA Quadro View?

TurboKen, yes sir. That is how our previous visuals in the simulator were created. With our (3) front monitors (Triplehead2go), and our (2) side monitors (a 2nd triplehead2go), we were able to get a seemless 180° viewing platform. Undocking each window view, (5 in total), and setting up the windows in the panel.cfg to view as follows:

Left front view: -45°
Front view: 0°
Right front view: 45°
Left side view: -90°
Right side view: 90°

Thank you.

Ralf,

Thank you sir for your reply. I deeply appreciate it. I looked over the "Quadro-Pro" link you provided and do not see how that would fix our issue. Perhaps I misunderstood the power of this software. Nonetheless, I thank you for your reply and if you have further suggestions I am all ears....

Thank you Ralf.
