Ok, I read the first 8 pages, forgive me if this is already mentioned. I always run eve on 2 30" monitors (5120x1600) under XP. I think it works quite well.

I move the ship HUD from center to the right screen, simply grab and drag it, it even remembers the new position.

One little suggestion: Vertically align the ship and the message display with the position of the HUD.

This should be a feature native to the game, not something we jury rig ourselves. I don't run XP. I run vista, and eventually the new Windows OS. sooo...

Wow after 3 1/2 years no dev reply....
I can not belive they would omit this issue since thier target audience are hard core gammers and after going thru all the effort and expense of getting new members they would not want to retain them....
It's now 2010, common dev's this is old news and it used to be supported.
You have to admit, given the amount of screen space this game takes up due to all the boxes that need to be open to play, multiple monitor support is required for comfortable game play. If its a matter of economics imagine the retention of an extra 10-15% of members youd have by making the game enjoyable instead of a convoluted mess we all have to deal with.
And belive me we deal with it, we dont like it. Each and every member who wrote into this topic represents hundreds who are thinking the same thing, and hundreds if not thousands who left because of how convoluted this game can be.

If you want my opinion, I belive it is left like this because there is a hidden agenda eve does not disclose, like a pay off to some high end ceo that they don't support multiple monitors so that Matrox makes money on their TripleHead2Go. Or other agreements to keep it like it is to drive up computing sales. This is one of the largest games on the web.
Lame CCP... shame... ugh

Monitoring 3-5 chat channels, fleet, targets, drones, etc is painful. Why detract from the beautiful EVE graphics engine by forcing us to clutter our monitors.

-Listen to the EVE populace; we've been asking since 2007.

Ability to have the map up on your second or third monitor would be awesome! This would be really good for both travel and probing

Ok, I'll not tease!

It's nothing huge, and don't expect anything ground-shattering, but it is a step forward!

Maps won't be on the other monitor, and it's not on a scale as Supreme Commander did. It's simple, but it is helpful.

OMG thank you so much, I was going to cancel my eve account if by beginning of next year we didn't have dual monitor support. My christmas present has come early. Please tell me I can throw convo windows over onto my second monitor?

Whould be so nice if I could put all the chatwindows/overview/dronemenu on a second monitor. Shows of the game way better to.
A lot of people/friend that I show EVE to, bounce back when they see my monitor. Full of windows and little 'freaky' things you have to pay attention to. second monitor cleans up the main monitor, and therefore make the game more accessible.

All of your request could be solved if DEV would just allow windows to be dragged off the main screen, like Adobe Photoshop.

Please get this implemented as a christmas present for the community.

I would accept this whole heartily rather than a limited edition ship.
