I have 2 monitors and want to put them to better use.
I have heard that some games can use both monitors (a different view in each), such as flight sim pro 2002. Does anyone know how i can do this and if any other games support it??
If the game supports it there are usually setup options and such to configure that feature, I don't know of a way to use it otherwise other then if the game supports the default extension of desktop so that it is split into 2 windows.
There are very few games that support 2 monitors and you are correct, flight sim pro is one of them.
You can set up dual monitors in two ways;
1. buy a graphics card that has dual monitor support, ie two connectors on one card.
2. Two seperate graphic cards, one AGP (main card) and one PCI (secondary card). I recommend a little research as to which ones are the best and support what Microsoft calls Multi-mon.
Check out www.realtimesoft.com, they have a cool program that adds some cool features for dual monitors, ie task bar extended on the second monitor, two different wallpapers, etc. They also have a very helpful forum for multi-mon FAQs.
