I know this topic has been discussed to the point of overkill but I feel that it is that important to have dual monitor support. As I find myself getting deeper and deeper into the EVE universe I find an inherant need to have dual monitor support. With multiple interactions going on it would be nice to have all my chat and information windows on one screen while continueing to fly / fight on a second window. In todays day and age I don't believe were asking too much when we ask for dual monitor support. Please make this happen so we can all continue to grow and enjoy EVE as it was meant to be enjoyed. YARRRR!!

I want multi monitor support, too!

I think, using a couple of monitors is even standard today like a dual core cpu, 2 gigs of ram and a high speed internet connection. CCP should note this - it is absolutely no geek wish!

Got three screens running and would love to use at least two of them in eve.

Could someone make an official online petition? Board posts dont seem to be enough impressing...

It isn't. 14.4% of steam users (gamers!) use dual monitors. Reason for this is very simple, most games simply do not work right on 2 monitors. The action/croshair/cameracentre gets centered right on the bezels of the displays. For multimonitoring to work out of the box you need a minimum of 3. This involves a 2nd videocard or matrox triplehead and it quickly becomes cheaper to buy a 30+ inch monitor to get an equivalent stake of real estate.

Prove that your number from steam is reliable and up to date. I suggest, you should read the whole 14 pages first to get known to what we want to have.

But let me explain my opinion in other words: Two thirds of the people I know do have at least a dual monitor set - as often claimed by others within this "proposal"-thread, too. Of course, they do not have it out of gaming purposes, they re working with it - as I do. And of course, they re gaming sometimes. Probably you should try a dual- oder triple-monitor configuration and you ll never miss it - even when you had just only one lone 30'' screen before.

However, most people here didnt say that they need more space panorama. The majority wants a second screen enabled, where they can put chat boxes, market information and star maps.

If you still dont believe what eve players want here a small sum up from the first 20 posts:

Eve dual monitor setups would be sweet. I'd love to be able to put functionality on one monitor and fly on the other. I have a 42inch monitor with 1360x768 that would be perfect for flying while I had all my widgets and module interface on my 22 inch 1680x1050 screen. Very Happy

one word, black

I want the second monitor to be a big black space where I can dump all of the lil windows, so the IGB, the chats, the market, info boxes, mission briefings, cargo, can's etc etc, anything that shows up in a "normal" window.

The other monitor can keep the 3d view, the overview, the targets, the control panel and the quick launch bar.

Like that silly wide screen option, except instead of black bars top and bottom make the entire right hand half go black, reposition the overview, control panel and targets appropriately and we're done.

Yes i really want dual monitor support! I want all market windows and chat windows to the another window! and things like that! it would hugely benefit this game and i would like to pay even much more for dual monitor client!

Market, ship info, scanner, would be so very sweet on my second monitor


Originally by: Xiza Larynx
I totally agree & this would be a fantastic addition, beeing able to have map, chat or whatever windows you see deemed in another monitor.


Originally by: Elenit
I've been considering getting another monitor but have been waiting to see if CCP implements proper support for it.

I'd like to be able to use both monitors with a single account and use one for the normal view - and the 2nd for chat windows, scanner, cargo, etc.

I'd also like to be able to properly run (ie: NOT windowed mode) 2 accounts side by side. Something like assign the active window (the one that has focus of the keyboard and mouse) to one monitor and to keep an eye on the other account. Then with a keyboard combo - switch - so that the 2nd account is now on the primary monitor - and the 2nd account is on the 2ndary monitor.


And this goes on for about almost 400 posts now - nothing controversal, just one clear statement.

So, whats your problem with our wishes - or did you just want to tell about steam statistics?

ps: got a 32'' hd-display, too. Im running a quad-monitor config, to be honest. The 32'' works good as a movie screen, but I really dont want to have it on my working desk.

Survey is done every month, august 2009. Up to date enough for you? But ehm, why do I have to prove my 14% while you're allowed to pull "it's standard" out of your ass? I suggest you also read the whole 14 pages again and find my posts popping up here and there.

For everyone of you, there's someone like me, someone who knows no-one using dual monitor. Not counting the workplace. You're confusing that "everyone you know" actually matters when it comes to 300k EVE accounts worldwide. Example: Almost everyone I know lives in the Netherlands. But that does not mean that there are 6 billion people there.

Originally by: Bojo Prinz

I've had dual. I've gone to the bigscreen instead of triple. Haven't regretted it for a minute. Especially since vista/win7 canned the horizontal/vertical span modes.

None what so ever. My problem is with you claiming it's standard. I'd love to see CCP implementing this, would actually get me to use a 2nd monitor again. But the reality is that this is a project that would effect about ~42k EVE accounts. Potentially a lot less players if multi-account users don't use the functionality in favor of a second account on the second display. It's a matter of CCP investing resources where they can get the best return.

The thing is, this could be solved with two very simple changes. First, allow for custom sizing of windowed mode. Second, allow players to lock their camera off-centre.

Hey presto.

I would love for you to explain your 14% number. The way I read that report, the most popular dual monitor resolution is 2960 x 1050 with 14%. If you expand the details, all of the dual monitor resolutions add up to 100%. That's 14% of gamers with dual monitors run at 2960 x 1050 - there is no indication on that page as to what percentage of gamers have multiple monitors.

Still a couple of disadvantages left. Imagine the span modes combined with multiple monitors. A quarter of a 30'' inch screen isnt the same as a single 19'' display ... but yes...who cares...

No. You didnt get the difference between stating facts and stating opinions and subjective points of view. Oh, and you did not realize the efforts to state or interpret a fact, too. Sorry.

Finally...why are you putting counterarguments on the table? If there's no disadvantage for you...then its not your job - it s only CCP's job to tell us which reasons prevent them from picking up this reasonable request for more than 2 years now.

Thank you very much ^^

Washell Olivaw: Dont bother cuz you tried to be the smart ass this time. Since we all agree that multimonitoring would be a very nice feature - what about signing this request, too? Smile

I was told that they showed this feature off at Fanfest! Apparently they had it running across three monitors. Does anybody know where I can find a video of that? It's not in the Keynote video they uploaded to youtube. I'm dying to see it!

Ah, my bad. The first video they posted, the one I watched, was not the keynote. Apologies for my hasty alarm. Should have been patient :P

Ok, I didn't read the whole thread, or most of it.

Suggestions for multi-monitor support.
1) Being able to run the eve client windowed on a monitor without window borders/controls. In order to best do this, adding the functionality to have the client snap to screen edges, and set which monitor your running on would be required. This enables moving between the eve client window and other applications easily, rather than through using alt-tab. This functionality is similar to what eve-mon offers.

2) Being able to move/relocate (detach) in game windows (chat windows, fitting screen, map, production screens, etc) out of the eve client screen space on to the general desktop space. The paint.net photo editing software (free download) offers this functionality, simply drag the toolbar out of the paint.net window. In order to best implement this, it would be advantageous if these detached windows were either tied to the eve client such that when the client had focus they were all brought to the top (so they are not hidden below other windows), and/or the option to set them to float above other windows, and/or being listed individually in a task bar like list so that they can be found and brought to the top. (Visual Studio 2010 lets you do much of this).
