Option to select the primary display.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I would appreciate an option to select the primary display.

Clarification: An option to specify on which monitor DCS is displayed.

 

In my case, I have two monitors, one on the desk, one on the SIM-RIG.

To fly I change the monitor under Windows, but I would prefer to do it in game.

 

There's such a feature in Star Wars Squadrons, for example, and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled.

It makes life easier.

I hope Eagle Dynamics can find the time and opportunity to incorporate the same feature into DCS.

 

With best regards

Hallo IIuricane,

 

this opportunity is already given, I myself use 3 monitors. Check your monitor / resolution setting at OPTIONS menue in DCS. Please do a search in the forum for further details. If you have problems, you can leave me a message in German. I can show you via live access (e.g. TeamViewer) what exactly to do.

As far as I can tell, there is no option to choose which monitor DCS should be displayed on in a multi-monitor setup.

I don't want to choose how many monitors DCS is displayed on, but on which of the two. First Display: Desk-Monitor / Second Display: RIG-Monitor

[My third "monitor" is a graphics tablet.] Not intended for "Gaming" 😉

So I set it in DCS once and leave it that way. At the moment I have to undo the change in Windows to work normally at my desk.

 

In other words. An option to specify on which monitor DCS is displayed.

 

But I appreciate your attempt to help, thx.

Hello IIuricane,

 

yes, I have understood your question, but, mea culpa, my answer was nubilous. Sorry. I did so, because I deem TeamSpeak , TeamViewer etc. more convenient than writing a (long) text.

 

I would suggest to write a new monitor file with new center viewport. Adapt X,Y coordinates that fit to your second monitor. Copy it into the folder with the monitor profiles and select it ingame in OPTIONS menue.
