First post on the forums.
I just want to thank the devs for an awesome game.
Players, I feel your pain.
I have found a temporary solution, at least for me. Unfortunately, it is not free...
#1: You need two PAID eve accounts. Trials will not work.
#2: No matter what your resolution is on the 2nd monitor (I have a 1440x900 on the main and 1024x758 on the slave) you WILL be able to run a main EVE client + a MAP (at least) on the 2nd. I have not tested single account UI parameters.
#3. Download and use EVEMON. You all know what it is. Download it, use it. If not,
#4. In EVEMON, you want to click on 'RELOCATOR' on the menubar. Selecting each monitor and choosing the default option "Monitor 1", "Monitor 2" will make the WINDOWED (assuming you have selected windowed mode in graphics settings in each EVE client) semi-fullscreen (you will not be able to tell the difference) so that you will have TWO 'full-screened' seperate accounts on the same computer with two different monitors (if you understand all this so far you're golden) sooooooo on account #2 (let's say a pirate alt) you'll have the full screen map going and on account #1 (your main) you'll have the regular EVE window + UI. Unfortunately this (as far as I know) does not let you share Info tabs, Market windows, etc, on the SAME account between two monitors. Only something irrevelant such as the map. But for the $15 a month extra, this makes it worthwhile for dedicated single pilot players......
It's the best I could do....CCP....give us dual monitor support!! ((sorry if this has already been discovered and posted (i'm afraid it has) Thanks o7

Well, all you Devs need to do is implement the possibility to shut off that stupid "feature" of the game to minimize itself when the game looses it's focus.
Very simple: There's a little routine in the base code that checks if the game has the focus. If it has, the game continues as normal. If it doesn't, the game minimizes itself and maybe adds a little delay before it checks again.
Now, add a little checkbox in the escape window, under adapter and device. Let it say i.e. "Dual Monitor Support". Now, if that one is checked, that little routine that I explained above, won't be executed anymore.

Now, on later updates you may add more options to a second screen, but this would be the best you could do for now...

Is this accurate? Is the EVE client responsible for the minimization? If so, please change this ASAP so we don't have to run in windowed mode and sacrifice our frame rates.

No response from CCP for last 3 years of existence of this forum ?!

1) fullscreen window must not drop to the bar when mouse clicks to secondary monitor for other non-Eve stuff
2) ingame windows need to be movable between monitors

This is an idea definitely worth the effort to incorporate on CCPs part.

I only read the first page and saw exactly what I want from dual monitor support.

Its Simple, make window scaleable, in the options allow for a variable that allows the location of the ship x degrees left or right. Have a default button to avoid any pesky trouble shooting options that could easily and quickly be addressed by players corp members or the ISD. Ive had the chance to play a game though a scaleable window, the immersion is just incredible.

/signed. I support undockable windows for multi-monitor support.

Posted - 2010.05.26 17:32:00 - [477]


An option to throw some windows to a 2nd monitor sounds great. (Especially when doing scanning and trading/industry).

It's pretty sad that the game is so old and doesn't have this feature...

Play 7 chars (windowed) at once in the game on 4 screens, 1 laptop. So, yeah you could say I support this.
Sadly CCP always says it can't be done, including playing 7 chars, 4 screens and 1 latop. Heck what do they know.
Commercially its interesting for CCP. All those hard core players will start doubling their accounts.

this please.

Although probably requiring a fairly large client change - making the main view port dock-able within the client's window would probably be a good option as it then covers some of the more outlandish monitor set-ups that people might have (although you'd need a way to specify what viewing angle the window is meant to encapsulate - this could actually be very interesting as you could end up with a wrap around display - caves anyone?).

Head tracking for HUDs :P?

Dose anyone know if ati's eyefinity works with eve?
