I think the solution, (if there is one), is either with your video card settings, or with Windows 7.
Why would you want to "stretch" MA2.6 across three monitors? - MA2.6 is designed to show the same image on all screens, its image is not intended to cover more than one monitor, in the way that MA3 can.  
Well, 3.0 doesn't work right on my system, I don't think microsoft is going to look into serene screen not working on win7 so that means Jim will have to find out what is wrong. It's not just my computer as the thread linked above shows several other people having very similar issues. My video card settings are stock, I haven't changed anything from what they were when I installed the latest version from nvidia.

As far as why would I want to span 2.6 across my whole desktop, why wouldn't I want to do that? If it can't then that is what I was asking, is it possible?.....so I take from your statement that it's not possible in 2.6?

Sorry, but I thought I had made my answer clear. - MA2.6 is designed to show the same image on all screens. Multi monitor support was only first introduced with version MA2MD, but this only provides for a clone to be shown on each screen.

If your system, (or your knowledge), will allow you to show MA2.6 across three screens, then either a lot of the top and bottom will be missing, or MA will have to be ridiculously distorted. - Neither of which will be worth having, IMO.

I wasn't aware that MA3 was not working on Windows 7, - perhaps your problem is because your three monitors are not correctly setup to show MA3 across all of them, but realise that MA3 is not wide enough to cover three screens. So you will have black bars at each end, (or a distorted image).

MA3 works fine on Windows 7, both 32 and 64 bit.

There may be problems with multiple monitors/videocards/drivers in some configurations.

Complaining about that is legitimate - but can be expected to have about the same effect as complaining that some site's web pages don't work properly with the xyzzy web browser.

CANDYMAN,

I'm sorry you are having issues with displaying on 3 monitors.

MA3 won't display on even a single monitor correctly after the initial start, I have to go into the settings and change it to windowed and then back to full and then it displays correctly on a single screen or spanned over all three, with the bars on either end. So basically it seems to be having trouble only when it starts.

I can only repeat... MA3 displays correctly on my TWO monitors. - Three monitors would seem to be, 'a monitor too far'. - Unless you can get the correct driver setup for a three monitor system.

If I remember correctly, Ed has a three monitor setup.... Perhaps he can throw some light on this problem?

Quite correct. I should have said that MA3 (beta 10d) works correctly on my several systems, most of which are running Windows 7 32-bit, and two of which are running Windows 7 64-bit. None of them have multiple monitors. Various video cards and driver versions are involved.

And I'm not sure what folks (if any) who participate in this forum are tech support staff. feldon33?

That would be Jim Sachs and employees of SereneScreen and Prolific.

Sometimes I put on the Tech Support hat too.

And very fetching it is too.

( Loose Dr Who quote from .. who can tell me ? )

Not that I am comparing you to the person referred to in that quote Morgan.


Side note- MA3 works just fine on my new Acer desktop with Windows 7 64 bit and AMD AthlonII quad core.

Further side note- I am quite surprised that the new desktop's graphics (ATI HD3200) are identical in performance to the 9550 card I put in the old desktop. Perfectly adequate for my needs but as soon as the warranty is up I'm getting a proper graphics card.
Run you clever boy. And remember...

That is from my confrontation with Borusa when he was wearing the Crown of Rassilon. It emphasizes my will.

1. That "straying" happened about a year ago.

2. This "read this first" thread is now well over 300 posts - the chance of somebody new reading it first, is less than the chance of somebody reading all of the EULA.

3. This "read this first" thread contains over 250 posts of information that is obsolete, outdated, "overcome by events", etc.

4. There seem to be about 4 posts of vital information in this thread.

....Just some observations...

Jim,

Go ahead and create another thread with all the info, answers, etc. you think every new user should read, and then I'll *LOCK* it. You'll have edit rights to add to it as time goes on.

Check Page 13 of this thread - and then the following from Page 14. The date is January 11, 2009

Jim now has those rights to edit his own posts in this forum, even if the thread is locked.

The point was things like this, also from eleven months ago (January 11).

It's still a good idea.
