Multi-monitor Support (Nvidia Surround / Ati Eyefinity)
Hi,

Just picked up your great game and being that you use the unreal engine, us multi monitor users usually get done over - and unfortunately this is the case with your beautiful game ( which by the way would look glorious across 3 screens). I use Nvidia Surround @ 5760x1080 and this is what I get when I load up your game.

1. No ultra wide resolution choices in the menu - only 1920x1080.
2. When I force my resoultion via .ini edit I get a vert- imagine, but the game screen letterboxing the side monitors and is confined to the middle screen, and the menu if spanned/zoomed (vert- part) or.

Have a look at my screen shots and hopefully you can do some magic to make it work.

normal game 120 FOV

startup - force 5760@1080 .ini - as you can see a glitch also occurs with the floating text ehind dream

Main game - letterboxing on sides - if you look bottom left you can just make out the Items menu (vert-)

regards

Spoonie

I also use Nvidia Surround and would like to see support for 5760x1080

I'd like to see 1920 x 1200 and other ultrawide resolutions supported please. I have a smaller secondary screen where I could play it on, but a beautiful game like this deserves a spot on the bigger monitor.

hopefully we can get some feedback on this.

Hey we're looking at getting this working for you. We'll also be adding more resolution options in the next patch!

FYI - those of you running 3x1 landscape should take the time to test out 3x1 portrait and see how you like it. I ran for years on landscape, and after switching to portrait I swear by it. Would never go back.

Also has many more compatible resolutions/ratios for current and older games.

I run 3x27" ASUS MX279's and you can't switch them to portrait so I am stuck with landscape.

I like the ultra wide view, If I want a more normal ratio then I plug my pc in the my 65" plasma.

My monitors dont support portrait mode, and to be honest although I haven't personally tested, I've seen a lot of it and it doesn't float my boat like landscape does. But cheers anyways.

Yes, The maze would be amazing in super wide screen, it would make looking down the side tunnels so much better and you could see the smoke chasing you. Would add heaps to the atmosphere because the maze is already pretty freaky.

owww can't wait to play this...it's just sitting there waiting for me - but I'll wait for multi-monitor glory :P

Hey just wanted to say thanks for implementing the higher resolutions - unfortunately the inventory doesn't scale properly and is still off screen :( you can just see in the bottom mid-left the top of the 'items' - the bottom screen is the best. Which also leads to another issue, the items menu has a white background?? Not transparent?

On a side note I had to adjust the gamma via .ini because it was set really high, and with no ingame way to adjust it - perhaps something else to look at?

I see in the latest change log that you will be doing an overhaul of the items menu - will this incorporate a fix for multi-monitors?

How's this all looking friends?
