    Is R3E capable of triple monitor video play?

    Longer answer, not properly because it's stretched.

    @Lars Hansen ,I seen in another thread your running a triple resolution. I just picked up 3 Acer 235h's .Company in the building I maintain was recycling them. I picked the best ones out of the pile. Could you share you settings for RRE. Do you keep the monitors straight across? Is there a decent FOV ?

    Well, first of all understand that R3E doesn't support trip-screens natively.
    All it does is spread a flat image over three screens, it doesn't warp the image at the sides as a proper set-up would.
    I honestly haven't fiddled around with the settings much, I'm just happy with the extra screen real-estate and the improved peripheral vision it gets me. :D

    But I'm running R3E at 5780x1080 with the default High settings, and that's it.
    I'd rather race than fiddle with sliders for a fortnight. ;)
    Screens themselves are angled at around 25 degrees or so (haven't measured).
    Just note that you will definitely need to change your FOV in-game when switching to trip screens.
    Otherwise you'll end up with the camera right up in the windshield.
