Multiple Monitors
This idea came to me while looking at my System47 LCARS screensaver. System47 can be on mutiple monitors and can be configured thru an options menu in Display Properties when it hit me, why not have an option to configure how many screens you have and what will be shown on those screens. I thought that would be pretty cool. Anyways keep up the great work.

Re: Multiple Monitors
Correct me if I am wrong. I believe that with the use of PCIe graphics cards with two cards bridged, each card capable of driving to screens, then you would have four screens at your disposal... that is if I am correct and my mathematic skills are up to par.

Just a thought....

Re: Multiple Monitors
XP actually supports up to 16 monitors. Wouldn't that be frakin' awesome!

LCARS x32 will support multiple monitors. And it will be fraking awesome.

I'm off to ebay to look for cheap touch screen monitors. Wait... I don't have any money. hrumph.

Re: Multiple Monitors
Screwloose, try changing your display settings to have one monotor on top of the other. System 46 does not support
it that way. :(
I sure wish it would, because I have no other physical options for my displays.

Re: Multiple Monitors
I have two CRT Monitors hooked up to my NVIDIA GeForce 5200 FX Graphics Card and I also have the System 47 screensaver as well and it works perfectly on both my screens, I just have my displays set up in Dualview and have the color set to High Color 32-bit and it works just figured I bring that up. But thanks for the replies and keep up the great work, Ray!

Re: Multiple Monitors
I also have the same issue. It would be (will be sweet) when LCARS can handle multiple monitors but for those of use with a touch screen, I have a suggestion: An on screen mousepad that functions like a laptop mouse. That way, by using the program you would be touching your touch screen while the mouse would be on the other monitor (in my case an LCD TV). Youtube on main viewer, anyone? Just a thought.

PS. If you are looking for a touchscreen but don't want to shell out 200 big ones for a tiny monitor, check out touch overlays.
