Dualscreen layout problem

Post by Vadi »

Hi,

I enabled dualscreen mode in spring and have the following screen configuration:

As you can see, the width of monitors is not the same for me - however, dualscreen mode assumes it is the same width, and hence a part of the right display overlaps the left one.

How can I manually configure the divisor line?

I don't believe you can, if I recall Spring's dualscreen only support screens of the same resolution.

However, you can ask about supporting screens of varying resolutions in the feature request forum. It has been requested in the past and I know there are numerous people - myself included - who would benefit.

you can also make it windowed at 1440x900 (or whatever that screen's resolution was), and it'll look fullscreen on that monitor, you can't scroll using the edges though, but i've gotten used to middle click scrolling and i like it better, especially if you enable smoothscroll, as an added bonus you can leave spring without alt-tabbing to do other stuff :D

to scroll at window edges, use /grabinput in windowed mode.
