Issue Report: SS3 Latest Beta Picks Secondary Display in Fullscreen
First off, the latest beta fixed a ton of multimonitor issues, it now runs pretty well and doesn't screw with my desktop settings. It still doesn't play right in fullscreen mode though, it chooses my right monitor despite my left monitor being set as the xrandr primary display. I have a couple other issues but am going to separate them into separate reports... not sure if this forum is supposed to work like a bug tracker or if I should consolidate.

Thanks for the report. Please post your Sam3.log file.

Does this happen under all window managers? From which display was the game started?

Oh, that's cool, it does start in the display that the Steam window is currently on. Unfortunately that's somewhat unpredictable as the launching screens always start up in between monitors on the very center, but it seems as long as the main window is on the display I want, it chooses that one. Cool stuff. Would still much rather have an in-game option for picking displays, but this is very workable for now.

Final update to this thread, realized after posting my last update that you can alt-drag between displays. Amazing, very awesome for a fullscreen window to have that kind of ability. Definitely can't do that in Windows! Consider this problem fully resolved.
