Consolidated Multimonitor setup threads (FAQ's)

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I recently purchased 2 more 24" monitors for a 3 monitor setup (going to add the 27" for the gauges soon I hope :pilotfly:). I realized that there are guides spread all over the forums, so I thought it may be nice to at least get the basic and most popular/helpful guides in one spot. So I decided to at least provide the links to all of them in one place. I did not write or help compose ANY of these guides, I deserve NO CREDIT WHATSOEVER for any of the work. The guys that answered the questions have earned all of it (hopefully this is a clear enough disclaimer, so nobody thinks I am taking credit for something I am nowhere near smart enough to do :joystick:). If any of you have noticed extremely popular threads on this subject that I have missed, please feel free to link them. So, with no further adieu, here is my list o' linkies...lol

Multi-monitor setup guide



View port/Multi-head users



Now that you understand some of the terms, this program makes it easier, hence the name "Easy Monitor Configurator". (please let me know if the problems with 1.2.8 compatibility are widespread, so I can remove this one)

There are a couple of ways of doing it. Here's an example that I wrote up a while back. You can ignore the bit about adding MSFD support at the bottom.
