    Has anyone tried PC2 with triples?
    I did and unless i'm doing something wrong... there is still some warping on side monitors..

    Works fine here... Are you using it with or without Surround/Eyefinity?

    I know that surround is not needed
    Yet, is that the cause?
    Do i need to turn it off?

    Thank you!

    IIRC, it should be the other... i.e. there are some issues if you are not using Surround. I'm assuming you have the correct monitor measurements and angles setup? Measurements are in centimeters.

    I run triples. I've setup with and without surround, it looks fine to me. Maybe post a screenshot of your issue.

    measurements and angles setup are ok... as i use them is rf2 and AC
    still,
    they are perfectly lined up
    the thing is ... i find the side monitors to warp a bit, gives me nausea (and it doesn't on rf1, rf2, GSC, AMS, IR and AC)
    can it be the camera settings? or those settings that define the "sense of speed", g force, etc? high fov? motion blur?

    just compare these two...
    pc2 seems a little off
    sense of speed in center monitor is too much
    side monitors warp a bit

    If you do a Steam screenshot, what do it look like?

    I tried the triple screen set up this morning but it had me sitting too far back in the cockpit. I moved the seat forward but everything was warped. I did the measurements requested by the game. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?

    Make sure your FOV is right

    How do I adjust FOV?

    By default, the FOV keys are mapped to '[' and ']'...

    Cool, I lowered the FOV, it looks great at 80. Love the true triple screen support.

    My notes:
    -distance from eyes to screen in triple settings doesn't work, this disrupts proportion between first and second plan, which leads camera to the wrong position (too close to window)
    -sides monitors angle regulation have some strange numbers, mine are set at an angle ar.35 degree and to match it in game i have to set it to 20 degree
    -cockpit views are not alignet, most of them are moved off center (looking at the wheel) to left or right
    -lack of FFB histogram in HUD (crucial for any wheel user), you can't say how FFB is perfoming in triples cause there's no graph for it
    -HUD customization is bugged, you can't drag and drop aplets
    -lack of keyboard input multiplication, to change POV you are forced to press repeatedly WSAD keys everytime pickick up new car

    BMW Z4 GT3 cockpit view comparision between Assetto Corsa, Project CARS 2, Raceroom Racing Experience i Project CARS 1.

    AC-perfect FOV and POV, except mirrors FOV and angles
    PCARS2-distortion on both sides, look at pillar A which is leaning forward covering large part of drivers view
    R3E-only central is usable, sides are stretched
    PCARS2-same like in R3E

    My side screens (45 deg.) look fine, I don't see any stretching. @rauf00, what cockpit camera setting are you using?

    you mean positioning in cockpit view, or my FOV and triple settings?

    I am also having troubles with the bezel gap. In physical width do I have to put width of the complete monitor including bezels, or just the LCD part of the monitor?

    just LCD, i.e width of each bezel

    I've setup both AC and PC2 to my actual monitors width, height, bezel, side monitor angle, and eye distance to center (triple setup config) and both look fine to me. Both you can then adjust in-car seat position which will not affect graphical FOV. But, with PC2 you can also adjust camera which can stretch/compress view.

    What's nice with PC2 is you can actually have different size monitors, you don't need surround. Not something I would do but just saying.
