Many thanks to WallStark for allowing us to link his video here.
Important instructions
This experimental feature is available since Fernbus Simulator version 1.22.27780 and is available for public testing to gather feedback. We cannot guarantee that this feature works for every PC system and it is not easy to set up at the moment.

  • You have to set the Screen Mode to Fullscreen Borderless in the Graphics Settings/Display.
  • All monitors must have the same resolution.
  • It is recommended to arrange the views from left to right.
  • It is an advantage if all monitors are the same size.
  • The Multi-Display Feature is very performance demanding and is not recommended for a low-end PC.
  • Some changes may require you to restart the game in order for the change to take effect.

Should you have any questions regarding this feature you can contact our support at https://www.tml-studios.de/forum/support/
Where can I find the .cfg file?
C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\Fernbus\Settings\MultiDisplay

Please note that the file path may vary from system to system. Insert your username, which you're using on your PC, at the directory position of *username*
Setting the monitor resolution
  1. Under the above file paths you should find two .cfg files, which you can use with the help of a text editor, such as. Notepad ++, open and edit.
  2. Under the point "configName": "2 Views 1920 x 1080", you can specify a name for your configuration, under this name you will find it in the game.
  3. "windowPosX": 0, specifies the X position of your desktop window on monitor 1, see graphic.
  4. "windowPosY": 0, indicates the Y position of your desktop window on monitor 1, see graphic.
  5. Depending on the order of your monitor, the X position of Monitor 1 may vary according to your resolution.
  6. "windowWidth": 3840, specifies the width of your two monitor resolution taken together, so here, for example. 1920 + 1920 = 3840th
  7. "windowHeight": 1080, indicates the respective height of both monitor resolutions, in our example 1080.

Positioning the UI (User Interface)
  1. uIPosX: 0, indicates the X position at which the UI begins
  2. "uIPosY": 0, indicates the X position at which the UI begins
  3. "uIWidth": 1920, indicates the resolution width of the UI
  4. "uIHeight": 1080, indicates the resolution level of the UI
  5. Under "viewportId": "View 1" you will find the following points:
    • "posX": 0, beginning of the X position of the ViewportID
    • "posY": 0, beginning of the Y position of the ViewportID
    • "width": 1920, resolution of ViewportID
    • "height": 1080, resolution height of the ViewportID

Angle and FOV (Field Of View)
If you have set up your monitors in angles to each other, you should measure the appropriate angle, eg. With a Geodreieck, and enter this angle value in the entry of the appropriate monitor under the following point:
  1. We assume the Montor 2 stands at an angle of 75 ° to Monitor 1.
  2. In the section "viewportId": "View 2 you will find the entry" relativeRotation ":
  3. Here you can find the point "yaw": 60,
  4. Should your angle eg. 75 °, you have to edit the value here "yaw": according to "yaw": 75,
  5. Please note that the FOV value (Field Of View / field of view) must be identical to the angle value
  6. The FOV value can also be found in the "viewportId" section: "View 2 contains the entry" relativeRotation ":, under" fOV ": 60
  7. If the angle of Monitor 2 is 75 °, you have to edit the entry "fOV": 60 to "fOV": 75.

Save the .cfg file and test it in-game
Save the .cfg file and start the game whose .cfg file you edited.

In the main menu under Settings / Graphic you will now find the corresponding entry of the configuration that you have just edited.

Good ride!

Is it possible that you did 3 IDENTICAL simulators and none of the three with 3 monitor support ????

it takes a video guide. 7680x1440 resolution does not work. written guidance is not easy for everyone. do a guide on how to edit the .cfg file even for those who have three 32 "monitors

The multi-display BETA feature doesn't work in regular "Fullscreen". You need to activate "Borderless Fullscreen". Please, read the guide carefully.

Should you still have trouble with this BETA feature you can contact our colleagues in the support centre at https://www.tml-studios.de/forum/support/

Our support centre does not require any registration and you can send your ticket right away.


Kind regards

Please note, that this feature is in BETA testing in order to gather feedback to improve it. If this feature would be flawless, there wouldn't be a BETA test. But thanks a lot for your constructive feedback, we will try to improve this feature during its BETA testing phase.

Thank you but I managed to solve it.
The main problem is what I described in detail in that forum.
Well, they are trying to solve this, as other game makers have been flawlessly solving for years.:steambored:
