- Multiple Monitors John Flexman Visitor
article pub: 2005
I've been a flight sim buff for a very long time, including having a private pilots licence for 10 years. It got to be too expensive a hobbie for me so I'm on the computer sims now.
I would like to run a secondary monitor to put FS's gauges on and just have graphics on my main monitor. I have a P4 3.2gig system with an ATI X850XT video card. I've looked around at a number of sites but can't seem to find any software that will split up the FS's windows. Anyone out there know where or even if I can get software that will do this, even if its just a trial copy? :) "

Greg, multiple monitors are easy nowadays -
Any reasonable graphics card (USD$200.00 plus) will support two monitors
1) Start Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004
2) Launch a flight
3) Press Alt-Enter to change from fullscreen to windowed mode
4) Open your extra windows (gauges etc)
5) Right click and "undock"
6) drag to the second monitor
7) press Alt-Enter to change from windowed mode to fullscreen
8) resize the windows as desired
Now combine this setup with Track IR on the main screen and you are flying in a very sophisticated virtual cockpit with unlimited views!
