DCS World Doesn't Remember Which Monitor To Use


Recommended Posts

I have two monitors connected to my computer, one larger than the other so use this one for gaming. Since upgrading to Windows 10, DCS always opens on the smaller monitor (one monitor selected in options), prior to the upgrade it remembered which monitor was last used.

 

Strangely no other game does this, they always open on the larger monitor which was used prior to shutting the game down. So I can't work out if this is a Windows 10 problem or DCS World.

That explains why this problem is happening,

 

Why can't DCS let the user decide which monitor they wish to use ?

you can but you have to setup a new monitor config with the lua files.

 

It has been a long time since I messed with multi monitor setup so I am not the best person to ask, there are some guides here on the forum, not sure how out of date they are now. Give the forums a search.
