Just tried this, works awsome with my 2 clients on my 24" (1920x1080) and my 20" (1680x1050)

Props to the creator

Is it possible to implement a feature for nVidia Surround users?
With "surround desktop" (like 5040x1050) your mover moves all evewindows to the left, because there is only one screen.
Would it possible to set targetpositions for the windows?
This way surround user can set positions like 0, 1680, 3360. And all clients are back aligned to the physical screens.

Btw. your program is the best eve-window-mover i'am knowing.

Thanks for reading.

Great little app!!

I have used shiftwindow, Evemon etc in the past but this tops the lot for elegance.

I just discovered a really cool use for the window cut out feature.

I run 4 accounts on 3 Monitors, (C4 WH anomalies mostly) up to recently I had my 2 combat pilots on the main screens with a warfare link Tengu boosting passively on the 3rd sharing with a prober with a combat probe out.

I now turn off the 3rd monitor and have the Prober and fleet booster at lo res minimised to the tray. I use the window cut out feature to capture just the probing window and overlay it on my main monitor. It stays on top by default and I can activate the scan by mouse click from that overlay. In effect this means I have a full combat fit on my main but with scan probe functionality grafted on.

So much easier than constantly checking 3 monitors. I can raise the full probers window to the top to refresh the probes by just clicking on the button at the top of the main screen.

Havnt tried it yet but this would be perfect for setting up multiple mining clients with just the cargo and jet can visible from each client, plus the prober if in hostile space ofc.

A small contribution is on its way as a vote of appreciation for greatly enhancing playability.

Edit to add a screenshot

nice piece of software!

but i've got a problem to get it running with those extra views.
when i click on new the client window goes all black, i can draw the square and client is back to normal...but the new view is black (but clicking/mousemovement in that view works).
i did try on 2 different computers with both windows 7, one ati one nvidia, but both seem to have the very same problem :(

anybody had those window goes black problems before and solved it?

the window view system only supports A8R8G8B8 and X8R8G8B8 pixel format modes, check your eve configuration settings and make sure you have one of those two modes selected in 'color depth', let me know how it goes

as for future updates, right now i'm having a rough time in rl and it may take a while before i release something new, thanks to all those that support this program, fly safe (or don't :)

Previous poster with the problem must have jinxed me!

Yesterday I used the overlay cutout feature with no problems but today I cant get it to work whatever settings in game or out I try.

I either get no reaction to selecting "new window" or the target client window goes black but the cutout works, once the cutout is made the client reappears but the cutout remains blank, It can be moved to a second monitor but just doesnt display anything, mouse works in the cutout but cant see what you are doing.
I have tried all combinations in the In game graphics menu including reducing res to 1024 and lowering/raising all settings.

I recomended to a friend and he also cannot get the cutout feature to work from the get go!

I hope you can take time out to take a quick look, I use this feature daily.

My specs are
Win 7 Pro
2x Nvidia Gtx 260 in Sli, Even tried with Sli disabled
Driver version 260.99 not changed since it was working yesterday
Resolution Monitor 1 1920 1080, Monitor 2 1920 1200

tried to reproduce the problem in winxp to no avail, some corp mates too using various flavors of win7 reported no problems, make sure you haven't installed any new software that could interfere with the program

Put the Pc to sleep last night and this morning The feature was working fine again, I made 8 windows into the second client without a glitch.

Contacted the friend and he too can now create cutouts. No settings changed its very strange.

I even managed to get full functionality on the new stretchy windows on Sisi :)

I posted on the Sisi forum
http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1417657

The new build has a complete borderless relocation function from the Esc menu. It also remembers which monitor it is set to and maximizes to that on boot up.

Also Performance for me is more than doubled, I get 140 fps with 3 clients on 3 monitors, in maximised window mode.And thats with HDR/Bloom/shadows at max and 1080p. I think it is my SLI kicking in, so looks like SLI has been enabled in the client now. I have 2 x Gtx260's.

In the light of the new windowed update to the eve client, i'm preparing a new ewmh version to save multiple client sesions with their positions, monitor locations and window views. Once it's done i'll reactivate pharago's account and post the program in this thread.

For some reason it's still working after today's patch on my first monitor, but I cannot maximize another client on my second monitor. You guys got any work arounds for it?

Thanks in advance.

There is one small problem.

After incursion patch when i run two clients and click SET CLIENT, all windows was setup with border lines and resolition was changed. I must try many times with resolution change for get good window position without borders.

Is any idea how i can disable dynamic resolution change in EVE Client?

I managed to get EWMH working with the new patch, by setting EVE to fixed mode and I just now use the EWMH buttons to switch between the clients.

Works fine for me under win 7 64 bit across 3 screens and 2 different gfx cards. Then again I'm using it just to switch between the windows.

A small feature request, if possible. Seeing how the software keyboard and mouse mirroring has been declared legal in EVE (push mouse in one eve client and exact same mouse click is 'mirrored' to other open clients at the same location) would it be possible to add such feature to this program as well. Plus keyboard mirroring.

So say .. I have 5 accounts, I set them all up on the same way and then fly in fleet battle with 5 ships fitted in exactly same way as I would fly one ship. There are few other program capable of this out there, but they are written for WoW and/or have features illegal in EVE (ie automated play, that is forbidden in EVE). HotKeyNet, Keyclone, AutoHotKey (AutoHotKey is illegal in eve as it can be macroed) etc.

In a few weeks i'll start developing the next version, and adapt the program to the new windowing features of the EVE client.

Awesome \o/

How hard it would be to get also "Picture in Picture" window support. Something similar to the current version but instead of showing only the part of target window have full client compressed into smaller frame. Does not need to take mouse or look especially pretty but would give one a rough idea of what is going on without looking at the target client explicitly. Cliking one of those minipictures might bring up the correct window.

Anyway - awesome program in my opinion even currently.

Well, that would mean pixel interpolation 'on the fly', it would be a very costly operation. Maybe sometime Soon.

I look quite forward to the next version as this program has been quite a help when running multiple clients. I hope CCP have also given you a big thank you as in my opinion you have likely helped quite a few people decide to run another account.

I'm quite looking forward for next version as well. After trying out few utilities designed extra for multiaccounting I ended up using this app for it even if it's not specifically designed for it (ie it's not exactly mirroring keyboard and mouse, altho the additional windows mirroning other clients are very helpful).

I'm waiting for CCP to finish their modifications to the windowed system on the client, recent changes to the way the client behaves on windowed mode, well, let's just say they've got one or two 'features', i hope they fix them soon, so i can build something usable.

I recently came back after being gone for a few months. When I left EWMH worked like a charm, now however, when I set the clients it is chopping off the bottom portion of the screen. Try as I might, I can't get it to fix it either. I am playing off a HDTV running 2 clients on one PC at 1360X768. Is the new "Features" screwing me up?

Thanks in advanced,

Hey

I think I need some direction here. I am trying to utilize the feature for creating windowed cut outs of your other open clients and bring them into one client (or so I understand it).

So you click on client tab, go to New Window X, and click New -> and this is supposed to bring up a screen were you can draw your cut out box etc?

I get no such screen. Have I missed a step?

Thanks.

I had this problem, after some tweaking I found that the feature doesn't work if you have Anti=aliasing enabled.

When working you get a yellow notification text on the target client, just draw a box around the required screen area with the cursor, drag the resulting box where ever you want.
You can make up to 8 cut outs total. It remains always on top and isnt effected by minimising the target client.
Great for minimizing a scanning alt and just keeping the scan interface overlaid over your main client. Also to have several miners with cargo and jet can from each on the main screen.

Is anyone having problem with launching eve client from path 3? Whatever link I put in there, it is not starting. I use 3 instanes of client in separate directories and would like to run all of them from the app.

By the way, great app, I just love it. Can't wait for next version with AA support for cut outs.

Would be great if You will add "/end /LUA:OFF" as an option to starting eve client.

you can do it yourself already, open the menu and select the 'configure' option, in the editbox that says 'eve online path' add '/end /LUA:OFF' to the end of the string, click 'ok' to save the new configuration. from there on you will be able to launch eve with those options activated.


This didnt work for me Mad
Can anyone give me a hint for this?
