I like the idea and would personally welcome dual support but my concern would be that daul screen players would have a significant tactical advantage over non dual screen players. (Just like in supreme commander btw)


There would be no 'significant tactical advantage' by moving chat windows and things like market, asset, and such to the 2nd monitor. I don't suspect people would actually move their overview and dronebay over there, as it's better to have them in the same screen as the action that is unfolding.

Having a "blackboard" where I can put all of my non-flight-related windows would be great for a trader/hauler.

Would also like to see dual monitors supported by the client CCP =)

I run 5 clients at one time on one pc. I have the top intel quad core processor, max ram. Three nvidia 8600 video cards each feeding a single monitor. I split the 5 clients amonst the three monitors. You have to be careful to associate the right client with the right video card (and monitor). Once you get it worked out, this setup works great for things like group mining, etc. It is not a good setup for pvp. This setup worked in XP and now in Vista. You do need to kill unneccesary backgroud processed to free up system resources.

So it is possible to run multiple clients on a single pc with the right hardware setup....

Wasp: Not quite wat the thread is talking about. Eve has for a long time worked fine with multiple clients on multiple monitors. The request here (over a year ago, i might add) is for a single client to effectively use multiple monitors, to alleviate some of the screen clutter. You can currently span the game across two screens, but you end up splitting th action down the middle, which doesn't work very well. I they gave the ability to either move the center of action to the left or right 1/4 point, it would leave a whole second monitor's worth of space to place aux windows (chat, mail, market, etc.)

So, the one and only thing CCP did about this so far is saying "EVE has a dual screen support to some degree" (Really? Where??) and linking it into "commonly proposed ideas"... I guess, that last thing - the link - shows that CCP isn't really considering that dual screen support...

I have to play in windowed mode to get around this and lose my lovely depth.


same.... the 'EVEMON' program helps, but you're still in fake fullscreen mode,

any suggestions guys?

I would love to see an expansion on the "full movable UI". Like dragging my map over to screen two and leaving it open allowing me to play on screen 1 and navigate my fleet from screen 2. Move my guns, and speed UI around and be able to get multiple views from my camera drones (listed in several of the stories). By that I mean having a view of my ship on screen 1, and screen 2 cut into 4 squares each overlaying my map as my map slides below these 4 new windows. (like photoshop's layers) On each of these 4 squares are 1 of my camera drone's point of view, each on a dif target going from secondary, to third and fourth.

Why isn't there even a "We're looking into it" from the devs?
Is this being addressed elsewhere?

It would be cool to have a camera centered on your own ship, and then have a cinematic monitor that would be centered on a drone. Or at least thats how I would use the second/extra monitors. Additionally, There is just SO much comparison making in Eve. Constantly looking at stats and making choices when suiting up your ship, its needed.

The having more monitors is like having a bigger desk, more room to work in -> more fun.

If I want to read the chat, I have to make it big. If I want to use the market, I need to make it take almost all of my monitor. Those two alone in another monitor would be a great help.

I'd like to see this implimented, I've just brought a 2nd monitor and was distraught to find I have to split my ship in half in order to make user of them both, Id much rather have a blank area I can drag parts of the UI onto, much like there is a player mod to do in World of Warcraft. (as much as I hate to mention that game, its relevant in the fact that there are mods availible to allow you to use two screens, and WoW doesnt even need two screens!)

I have two 19inch monitors and an 8800 GTX superclocked. Dual monitors works fine with windows, but when I try to start eve in horizontal span mode, it does some crazy small resolution so I can't see everything on the menu (ie, can't change gfx settings) and it actually just turns off the second monitor. Am I missing something? HELP!

Would be lovely to have the option of moving all screen clutter to a 2nd monitor!

If you are simply asking a question, it probably belongs in General Discussion or possibly EVE New Citizens Q&A

It has now been over ONE YEAR since a Dev has replied in this thread.
I think the community has been specific enough regarding the question at hand.

THIS is what we want.
Seriously -- No more elaboration is needed.

1.25+ years and still no reply. How long does "Multiple Monitor Support I" skill take to train ? Oh wait, level I is only 1 screen ugh

Indeed "No more elaboration is needed", a very large number of players have highlighted how very useful this functionality would be.

No word from a Dev on whether this is acknowledged or being considered ?

Hullo? Anyone home ? *knock knock*

As advanced as EvE is in some areas of graphic (widescreen support long before mainstream games), I'm really surprised they haven't provided this support long ago.

PLEASE add dual monitor support! A black screen on the second monitor would do just so we can dump all the chat windows, market, etc on a monitor separate from the one with the ship on.

EVE's gameplay is especially suited for something like this!

I have two 24" 1920 x 1200 screens at my disposal... and I HATE it when the playing screen is cluttered full of different windows. Or is this dual screen support never gonna happen? Same as the bigger font issue what has been on the table like years now?

Or is the CCP good enough with players complaining but still playing?

As a dual screen user myself, i would even pay if it's decent, you could sell it as an EvE addon and i'm sure a lot of eve fans would buy it.

It would be very appreciated if we could get some input of the devs, are there plans for dual screen support ? do you want more input from us EvE fans ? share some of the light with us :)

Don't just think of a dual monitor setup for screen clutter cleanup. One nice feature of the Star Trek: Armada game, which supported dual monitors, was that the 2nd monitor was an "action" monitor, with a cinematic-like view of the game. Would be a nice way to see what is going on in battles.

Do your thing in the left monitor, and you can poke your head over to your right monitor to see a nice cinematic view of two of your buddies in Ruptures flying around a hostile Domi shooting their autocannons at it point blank. With camera rotating around the Domi for a nice view.

Most definately signed. Infact why stop at two... why not be the first in the industry to allow me to use all 3 (technically 4 actually) of mine? :D

But yeah, two would be a start.

A couple of different formats I'd like to see. A black screen where maps and chat windows etc could be dragged would be fine, but as well as a black backround it would be very cool to have a 'zoom' screen that allows you to look at your target just like clocking the appropriate button, whilst leaving your main screen on your own ship. One of the things that annoys me above EVE combat is how impersonal it can be blasting away at 50km when your target is a few pixels on the horizon... much nicer to be able to see your beams hit home :D
