    Bizarrely having moved from using my projector to using a normal monitor it has totally transformed my steering wheel issue (wobbling left/right all the time)
    However the smaller screen isn't ideal and as I have a spare monitor kicking about I thought I'd setup 2 (not as good as 3, but hey ho), so I could have forward view, and out right side window view

    Question is, how do you do it !?!
    Main monitor runs at 1920 X 1089 and the other 1440 x 900
    Video card is Radeon 2900 with 2 outputs. Both screens work fine in extended deskTop mode so there is output to both screens.
    Running on Windows 7

    I looked in GSC config but couldn't see anything obvious....help please
    Thanks all

    I wouldn't, to be honest.
    Even assuming you can get it to work, which is doubtful since two screens is unlikely to fit any of the standard resolutions in GSC, you'd still end up with the problem that you can't move the POV.
    Or in other words, you won't get front on one screen, and right on the other, you'll get a view centered right between the two screens. :)

    I think you may well need an extra bit of software called softTH which allows you to create all kinds of monitor configurations in Windows that can be used with various sims.

    As Jason said, Soft TH is the solution.
    I have a weird configuration
    19" 1366x768 and 23" 1920x1080, pretty much the worst combo ever.
    I cant run SCE Full Screen but that doesn't bother me
    I run in a window that take all the 19" and the central strip of the 23"
    In my 23" i run the console to see ffb clipping (i pretty much see few line at the bottom and few lines at the top.
    The window height is bigger than 768 because the two monitors have differrent ppi.
    Because the mointors have are different resolution the wheel is not in the middle, I got used to the awkwardness pretty easily :)

    Thanks all. I will give the soft TH thing a go and if it hammers the FPS I will stick with the single.

    Anyone using Soft TH with rfdynhud, how do you assign the d3d9.dll file to make them both work?

    I think Reiza is including rfdynhud in AMS... If i remember correctly i saw forums saying that you cant have both.
