Secound Video Display Issues
So I have two monitors plugged in via Display cables into the 7990 and for some reason when ever I enable the secound disable in forage alliance it turns all the settings back to defualt the video settings do not stick save. - even if i go into the CFG file for FA and change them that way and hit save soon as game starts it goes back to the defualt settings ? only time I can get settings to stick is if I only use one display for game.

figured it out you can not have three monitors hooked up to the computer it fs it all up it seems if you disable one then it works fine but as soon as you connect three it goes screwy.

I guess if you really wanted three monitors you could use eyeinfity cuz it seems FA and SUP Com both support eyeinfity setup two displays for Eyeinfity then third one as a 2nd display then use split screen option with home key on the eyeinfity setup make both maps fit two diffrent screens and then you have your mini map on the 3rd screen, iv tryed this it does actully work give you three map screens at sametime

Thanks for the post--this was helpful for me. I was able to get it to work two ways:

Like you said, I created an Eyefinity profile where my two outside screens were one and mirrored, and my middle screen was separate. Middle screen is primary so the main game displays there.

Or, without a special profile, tell SupCom to use the primary screen and select None/Disabled for the second adapter. That will also work correctly, but you don't get a secondary battlefield screen. Personally, this didn't bother me much and is far simpler than engaging and disengaging the Eyefinity and mirroring settings (which I found extremely unintuitive and really messed up my windows/icons).

Note also that I have SupCom from someplace I don't even remember. Not the Steam version.

Thanks again!

glade it helped someone I found with windows 7 I can just turn off one LCD with power button and it works, for me now. but like you said it kinda messes up icons and stuff.
