Two monitor setup.

So I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with setting up my two monitors to display both MFCD's on the left screen and the main view on the right.

 

So I have a 27 inch 1920x1080 screen on the right this is my main monitor.

and I have a 19 inch 1440x900 screen on the left.

 

I wanted the two MFCD's on the left 19 inch screen side to side and my main view on the right 27 inch screen. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Okay so I Installed the program ran it and got these messages Defined monitor configuration file is not present in your game folder! run DCS and change default monitor configuration I press ok And it says LUA files for DCS a-10c need to be installed do you want to install them now? I press yes and it says DCS world is not installed on your computer or EMC can't find installation folder. Please check your DCS world installation and run EMC again.

If all you're doing is exporting the MFCD's, you don't really need EMC (and it's broken for 1.2.8 anyway).

 

There are many other posts on this, but basically make a copy of a lua in your monitor folder and change it with notepad++ to suit your set up. Then go in to DCS and enter your total screen real estate and select your new lua. My setup is similar to yours, so my lua is below ( you can delete the reference to the rwr, or leave it, it won't change anything).

 

I also recommend you start here before asking a ton of questions if you run into trouble: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=89282

I have a similar setup, except I also export the CDU, CMSC, and Clock. When flying high-g turns the center of the blackout-effect is not the center of my main view display but the center of my full screen setup... Is there a way to straighten this out?

 

Another Issue in MP are the Slots: as soon as I scroll through the available slots of a coalition the Name-entry of occupied slots disappears for this coalition. Any Ideas?

 

Thanks,

Mav

Try this for the multiplayer issue:

Sadly the other multimonitor issue (along with HDR, sun flare, map...) is years old, with no fix on the horizon :( EDGE to the rescue, hopefully.

Drop this in your monitor .lua folder. Then in game select the lua from the options drop dwn window. Also you can move it to what ever side you want from desktop hope this helps:thumbup:
