    hello,

    I'm really looking forward to this game, and I hope there will be a good support for triple screen, especially for EyeFinity.
    Which include
    - Separate render screen with bezel managment
    - Allow fov up to 179°
    - Allow vertical offset adjustement

    Cheers,
    Seb

    I know it's a bit better according to feedback I read in our development forum, but only have 1 screen myself. I think Joe had more plans to work on it, but it was a while ago I checked in on this. It wasn't top of his list, at that point HDR was. Soooo, vague answer I'm afraid. :(

    Well this is a bit depressing for me to hear. Was really hoping rF2 would have full triple screen support. Is this something that is planned on being implemented by the time it goes gold?

    Um yeah I have read that thread and am well aware of it. Tim never replied to that thread though and in this thread he makes it sound like triple screen support is minor. I am also aware of what the Q&A says about it, but it just mentions virtual screen angles. Nothing about bezel management or max FOV.

    Actually I thought I was too vague to be called minor. I know people don't like vague answers, but it was a response. :)

    I am a bit disappointed if there is not much improvement. Only in the last few days did I find out that I can get 3 screens rendering properly which is a big improvement in how I every used rfactor before with triple screens,.

    If one thing could change it would be that I could set any fov I wanted and have the screens line up, as it is you fiddle with the FOV until the screens line up and then take it or leave it. It's OK but could be a lot better.

    Yeah that is really important. As I said I don't know how far Joe got, but he does have an extensive list of things which you guys felt important, as does everyone. :)

    I am certain that if better eyefinity support is not included in the initial beta release, then it is only a matter of time until it IS implemented. After all, what we will get at the start is not what we will have at the end of the beta period.

    If something in the initial beta is not right, then we need to make sure our reports are positive and factual - and not just a bunch of whining babies complaining. Just saying. :p

    Indeed! :) We are lucky to have the chance of being involved in the Beta, this is a wonderful chance for ISI and rFactor fans to directly influence the quality, content and finish of rF2 :) People need to remember, it will be a BETA even though many of us will use it to race online instantly. If we place our opinions in a POLITE, CONSTRUCTIVE and HELPFUL way, we will all benefit :)

    AMEN!!! Well said!!! I was thinking exactly the same thing when i start reading your post, people must have conscience of the beta, this is a beta guys and our feedback mainly modders group feedback will have Dev. listening and of course POLITE, CONSTRUCTIVE and HELPFUL feedback from the comunity it self will be considered to!!!

    As far i am concerne my Eyefinty setup is in place to test RF2, i will put some questions about this feature for sure!!!
