Hi, S77th-RYKE I've got the answer for the borders, if you haven't found yet. I put these bold lines in softth.cfg You can see also the AA declared so you have a mean to enable it without forcing your display drivers: SoftTH 1.09 configuration file ; by Kegetys, [url]http://www.kegetys.net[/url] ; [config] deviceIDLeft=auto deviceIDright=auto secondaryWidth=auto secondaryHeight=auto secondaryRefresh=auto secondaryFormat=RGB32CUDA uploadMethod=D3DCUDA forceAffinity=0 [B]antialiasing=2 borderSize=63 sideExtraWidth=-63[/B] noHotkeys=0 noOSD=0 I've got a question, in return, what's yours fps cause with my config E8500@3.2, 285 GTX, xp, I can't get more than 20 ftp Whatever the settings. I mean with the lowest detail it's 20 fps, and with the highest detail it's almost the same... It's bugging me. There's not proportional as it should be, usually the the less detail the better fps. I hope my lines helped anyway. See you up there :pilotfly:

hi Helmo , thanks for the borders settings, I'll try it tonight. for your FPS issues , I think it's because you are on XP . I get better performance in every game but the DCS ones on XP . are you on 64 bits ? how did you enable CUDA ? can't get it to work on any OS . a weird setting that gave me a 24% boost is turning civ. traffic to ON. maybe you can do a dual boot install . good luck and I'll let you know tonight if the borders worked . hey , you added the extra width in options.lua right ? I'm having a freeze problem when zooming , how is that working for you ?

I forgot to mention my FPS Helmo , I get 60 to 80 at mission start in the 33. it gets lower to 35/45 when things happen.

I'm very impressed bye your huge 80 fps !! My xp is "regular" 32 bit, and I did try Cuda with no real improvement.:cry: Now I know that I must install another OS, to get more fluidity. Whatever it takes, I'll do it to enjoy flying triplescreen. You should understand what I'm talking about. If you look carefully at my first message, the lines to had are [SIZE=4][COLOR=RoyalBlue]in Softth.cfg[/COLOR][/SIZE] Let me know if you have troubles with this. And the last thing, is the freeze that was already part of the triplehead problem [COLOR=Black]that lockon FC1 wasn't able to solve. I guess it has something to do with trigonometry, I mean that each time your view angle [/COLOR]approaches 180° the game freezes. It's like the game tries to divide by zero, thus causing calculation problems. That's my guess... Nothing done in FC2, to avoid the problem. Another one they didn't solve, is that fact you don't see smokes, and contrail when using wide angle like 220° you already use. Seven's Installation in progress... Fingers crossed.

175' was about it for stable zoom (on th2go for reference) loving your work Ryke, great screenshots. with softTH others can now benefit from your efforts and try multi screen DCS/FC2 :thumbup: Edited by G3

I made a little tweak that should help with getting a wider FOV with triplehead (not just SoftTH), like this (155 degree FOV): [IMG]http://junk.kegetys.net/fov_155_fovfix.jpg[/IMG] See [URL="http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/2986295.html#Post2986295"]this post[/URL] in SimHQ forums for more info.

here's some feedback on that fovfix Kegetys . the good ; 1-it did fix the freezes when zooming issue . 2-contrails are visable even fully zoomed out . the bad ; 1-lots of stretching of the side monitors even if looking just a little bit to the sides . stretching increases exponentially the more you zoom out . see picture attached . [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2491[/IMG] 2-externals looks wrong , I see a stretched out plane from the front , and a bunched up image when viewed from the side . [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2492[/IMG] [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2493[/IMG] 3- map view is distorted , planes change positions on map many Kms (100s) according to zoom level . I'd really like to see your softh.cfg Kegetys , and what do you do about borders ? is adding it this way the right way to go ? [B]borderSize=63[/B] [B]sideExtraWidth=-63[/B] Is there a way to get the wonderfull zoom fix and not the distorted view ? of course I may be doing something wrong . I wouldn't be surprised ;) . but I did revert all my previous changes from my 1 st post and went with yours as explained in the fov fix read me . as you can see from my previously attached screens , it was better before . except for the zoom freezes (and crashes because of it). [SIZE=3][COLOR=blue]thanks a whole lot for all your work Kegetys[/COLOR][/SIZE] , it made almost all my gaming experiences 1000 times better . G3 and Helmo , thanks for sharing . keep us updated .

Hi S77TH-RYKE, FYI I'm running 3 x 24" at 1920x1200, but prior I had 1 24" at 1920x1200 and 2 19" at 1280x1024 With [B]borderSize [/B]and [B]SideExtraWidth[/B]: From my experience the [B]borderSize [/B]is the entry that adds in the borders/bezel management. On my current setup I use 150 and everything (almost) lines up properly. [B]SideExtraWidth[/B] is the difference in resolution between the central monitor and the sides. On my current setup of 3 x 24"s I use 0, whereas on my old setup I was use -640 (1280 - 1920) So now my softth.cfg simply has in it: [B]BorderSize=150[/B] [B]sideExtraWidth=0[/B] and on my old 1920x1200 centre with 1280x1024 sides I used: [B]BorderSize=150[/B] [B]sideExtraWidth=-640[/B] With the whole fishbowl effect (i.e. sides being stretched) I don't think there is a fix, as this is due to the mathematics/optics of using a single camera with wide Field of View. The only way out of this would be to use the 3 monitors option in FC2, but this introduces other issues and also kills frame rate. Formski

That's why I asked kegetys to post his own softh.cfg , I do hope he comes back in here . :helpsmilie: about the [B]fishbowl effect (i.e. sides being stretched) , [/B]some game engines is worse than others for it . but you can see by these pictures that it is [B]not [/B]the case here with FC2 since using softh alone without the fovfix rendered these[B] "normal"[/B] scenes as illustrated by these screenshots; [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=346&pictureid=2471[/IMG] [COLOR=black][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=346&pictureid=2472[/IMG][/COLOR] [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=346&pictureid=2473[/IMG] [SIZE=4][COLOR=red]now these are with the fovfix , combined to softh.cfg[/COLOR][/SIZE] [COLOR=black][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2491[/IMG][/COLOR] [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2492[/IMG] [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/picture.php?albumid=350&pictureid=2493[/IMG] now it very well may be that I'm doing something wrong , but Kegetys' posted pictures on SimHQ are only looking forward so , no way to tell for sure if he's experiencing the same stretching when looking to the sides . it does look like it would be stretched though . hope that clears it up and how did you manage your bordersize settings ? through options.lua ? please share your config . thanks

Hi S77th_RYKE, Unsure about the fishbowl effect - it's happening here too and it probably is related to the hack Kegetys has released. However i find it more annoying than when the smoke trails and land mass disappear. Would love to find a tidier solution however, which probably means ED need to look at and fix this in-code. FYI in [I]options.lua[/I] I have [B]["width"] = 6060,[/B] [B]["height"] = 1200,[/B] [B]["resolution"] = "6060x1200",[/B] and with [B]borderSize = [/B]150in [I]softth.cfg[/I]the screen border is about right.

good to see some focus on the old zoom issue :thumbup: great to see Kegetys drop in and assist on this. the fixed image in the pit with the clouds looks stretched on the sides, but the fix sounds like it allows you to zoom more without pc locking up small steps Edited by G3

Is there a way to get the wonderfull zoom fix and not the distorted view ?[/QUOTE] In short, no. What you're seeing is the effect of a too wide FOV when using a rectilinear projection. And since video cards today can only render straight polygons, rectilinear projection is the only one possible today (The issue exists in all games). The same issue can be seen in photography, ie. [URL="http://static.photo.net/attachments/bboard/00B/00BtyG-22959984.jpg"]here[/URL]. The bottom image is rectilinear and it shows the same kind of stretching. The top image uses something else (could be stereographic projection) so there is no stretching, but straight lines are no longer straight. This kind of projection would require bending the polygon edges which is impossible with todays video cards.

As a cyborg, you will serve SHODAN well

Hi Guys, I am using this fix for the version of fc2 prior to the patch. I see that the patch has added some code and a server file that the client must match. The readme said something about preventing cheats by altering the view angle settings. Does anyone know if that prevents this fix from working online? I don't want to have to play with one monitor to go online :( Thanks.

Hey all, Im running 4 monitors on black shark [IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/album.php?albumid=392&pictureid=2765[/IMG][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/album.php?albumid=392&pictureid=2765[/IMG][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/album.php?albumid=392&pictureid=2765[/IMG][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/album.php?albumid=392&pictureid=2765[/IMG][IMG]http://forums.eagle.ru/album.php?albumid=392&pictureid=2765[/IMG] the shkvl is now under the middle screen. Using softtg and a phantom monitor fix, when i try on FC2 I get a runtime error. Is it possible to run 4 screens on FC2 with the lower middle screen (far left in photo) as the instruments without using touchbuddy (want the A10 maveric camera or F15 MFD) Thanks edit: Just the post 2 above edit 2: doh.....not got windows 7 only xp.
