PS

maybe i've got an idea:

You are able to use dualscreen but you can see the space on both monitors but your ship is moved to the left one (or right one) or just one black screen where you can put your windows and stuff.

I run 2 accounts with a fairly standard computer on medium graphic settings with out any problems or lag, my 2 X 22" TFT monitors do the trick... and I would't like this display to overlap.

Especially with new graphic minimum requirement, regular laptop now can't be used decently to run second account. Remove that Auto Minimize feature when in full screen mode.

1. poasting to confirm that CCP Doesn't care.

2. How about 3 monitors ? then your ship in the middle isn't cut in two and you can slam all the crap out to the sides.

EVE needs another display mode ... it's called windowed full-screen without borders ... that's the way WoW does it ...

in this mode you can have EVE on Monitor 1 and you can click on your 2nd monitor and play around in winamp/browser/play a movie use an OFF-Game-EVEMap-Client without the EVE-Client closing up ...

I play in windowed-mode but have to use a smaller resolution than my 1st monitor is set to because of the borders ... if the borders are displayed on the 2nd monitor I experience a massive drop in fps ... about 40%, which is simply unacceptable ...

multi-monitor support as mentioned before would also be awesome ... because I could stop using out-of-game EVEMaps (great job btw.) considering the direct connection to the game and it would considerably increase in game playing experience and fun-factor and ui-usefullness ...

so CCP ... it's your call now ... DO SOMETHING PLEASE !!! It's about time ...

PS (off-topic):
and at least allow more keybindings ... for example: all buttons of the overview should be accessable by keys ...

dual screen is possible.
i have run twin monitors for a couple of years
u need an nvidia card with 2 outputs, 2 monitors and windows xp 32 bit
use the nvidia drivers and goto multi monitor display
use horizontal span this effectivly splits your screen across the 2 monitors and eve allows you to have a greater screen size.
im testing windows 7 ,horizontal span not allowed, same for vista as well apparently, back to the ol XP we go.

This is still not the same as OP suggested: to have the 3d graphics / combat stuff on the 1st screen and the chat windows/market/other stuff on the 2nd.
Furthermore, running a setup like this has nothing to do with eve client, its all about gfx drivers & your operating system.


Would be also awesome if you could run two clients on separate screen as full screen aswell.

Another problem with using driver/Operating system would we that your ship can be split up.

And for the last remark there are a few solutions out there that do exactly what you want. Look for eve-launcher or similar.

Yes, absolutely! Microsoft Flight Simulator has had this capability for years and I would love to see it in EVE. It's really hard to overstate how much this could improve the game because players would have the option of putting all the information windows on a separate monitor.

To be perfectly honest, I'm actually a little surprised this hasn't made it into any of the expansions yet.

It's always bugging me that I can't see most of the beautiful space CCP has given us - because it's all obscured by various windows.

Just flying around ratting in nullsec, I have the following open:
Minimised Sidebar.
Local Chat.
Cargo Hold.
Chat Stack (Corp/Alliance/Intel).
Loot Window (When applicable).
Command Bar.
Selected Item.
Overview.
Drones.

Add to this fleet and broadcast windows, and the fact that many of these have minimum sizes, and 60% of my screen is taken up.

Please, CCP. Give us something!

A bigger screen and better gfx-card, so you can play on a higher resolution Twisted Evil

Oh well got the same problem as you. Especialy on my second cliŽnt that runs on a 19 inch screen, lesser so with my main cliŽnt on the 22 inch wide. So for me the suggested dual screen wouldn't help solve my problem. But giving us more posibilities to rearange the UI would help, like moving the ship move away from the central view of the screen.

GFX card is fine (9600GT), and while I am looking to upgrade to a 22 wide very soon, my current 19 wide (@ 1440x900px) should really be enough to fit what I need on.
Like you say though, the entire problem could be solved with some UI tweaks. A UI scale slider would solve SO much by itself, as would the option to pick a font that's clearer at smaller sizes. Right now I have trouble spotting the difference between zero and eight, or five and six, without cliking the +A several times.

With three monitors (and the projector as a forth) its really annoying when I click on something out of game and eve minimizes. I really with the game would let me get it on all three screens. maybe make it a skill to train. there has got to be a way to do it. and there is definitely enough people here (in this thread alone) to justify it. Please CCP, give us multiple monitor support!

I run two clients on two different monitors. Those people complaining about the border in windowed mode should Google a program called eve mover. It removes the border and lets you use every spare pixel on the monitor for EVE. For those who have played wow it essentially recreates the 'maximized windowed mode'. It can be a little quirky at times but I would love CCP to implement something similar as a first step towards multiple monitor improvements. Especially since it is a quick modification that doesn't require a larger change like the requests to extend one client over two screens.

fantastic idea, it would be supremely nice to dedicate one monitor to a "sratch space" where you can either drag and drop overview, chat windows, cargo hold, or display maps, routes, etc.. without cluttering up the actual game display. with everything int he background going on, it's nice to see more than slivers between windows and a piece of a ship in the middle of the screen every once in a while....
