Triple Monitor Support ?

    What if they are investigating possibilities but don't yet know if it's feasible?
    Do you want them to say 'yes, it's on the way' only for them to find out it's not feasible - in which case they'll be called liars, or for them to say 'no, not coming' and to then add later on when something is figured out (by which time all the triple screen ppl would have left due to first announcement)

    Should they update this thread every day "we are at work, stay calm kids" or what you mean? :D

    Investigating the possibilities? Now? That's what I call poor pre-planning.

    At least once they should. Is that really too much to ask?

    Sadly no. :(

    And I agree, I can't drive like this either (still 4 hrs in game)...
    And really...those mirrors (this is on EPIC setting):
    The dotted line is in fact a full line too.


    Looks like a game of about 10 years ago...
    Even stranger is that mirrors on low settings aren't that much worse...what is wrong here ? :confused:

    Cant' even see the right mirror, because even the right pole is out of reach on my right hand monitor.

    My guess as to why there isn't much talk on this (other than Kunos not promoting features until they're sure they work) is that this is a problem thats some what out of their hands. It's an engine shortfall and one that affects more titles than just ACC. I would assume this is something that epic games are working on implementing and that it will eventually become a standard feature of the engine.

    If there was any truth to my guess then Kunos are not in a position to comment. It wouldn't be fair for Kunos to make statements about what epic games are doing. Obviously that's not much use to people waiting on the feature as all they can do is be patient but there's nothing really that can be said at this point and I wouldn't expect a definite answer of yes or no until full release.

    It would have been fair to explain that before the game came available. I can't believe nobody at Kunos thought about that when they decided for UE4.
    I took a risk, kinda supported Kunos in good faith. If it's not going to come, so be it. But I still believe it is not fair.
    EA implies you pay less and can test a game with all shortcomings. Well, I can't test because for me it is simply undriveable. Now I (we) have to sit it out and wait and hope...

    They probably did, and for all we know they got assurances it would be implemented before ACC made it to full release. The fact they haven't said "no" implies something is inbound. Typically if there isn't going to be a feature in the game they do say so.

    I can understand why that would be extremely annoying, but nothing about the EA process can be considered a promise of anything. The only thing you've been promised is a fully featured title next year, none of those promises apply until the game gets a full release. Until then you get access to whatever state the game is in now, no guarantees.

    You say the game is undriveable but that's not really true is it. You could play the game on a single screen, but you don't want to. I could say the game is undriveable for me because there's a housing shortage in my area and I can't find a house to live in so I've nowhere to set up my rig, sort it out Kunos.

    You know (or should know) very well that what I said makes perfect sense. Being used to driving sims that have correct triple screen support makes it simply impossible to drive with the stretched side views, let alone reverting to one (in my case 27") screen, without side view.

    I know that when your used to playing on something like triples there's kind of no going back, I'd turn my nose up at anything less than VR. But that still doesn't make the game undriveable, it may not be up to your standards, but plenty of people play and enjoy the game on a single screen.

    I do have sympathy, it sucks not being able to enjoy the game the way you want. It's not unreasonable to expect triples on a sim title, but Kunos are braking new ground with new software and that means even the basics are going to cause problems. The bottom line however is you can only be patient at this point, it's only a few months until full release.

    Oh, I agree that plenty of people may well be enjoying this in its current state when on single screen or even VR, though I read A LOT of complaints there too).
    I was just refering to my own. For me it IS undriveable on triples (even seeing the side monitors in my peripheral view causes uncoming nausea after a short while - almost as if I'm driving in VR which gives me the same issue) and I sincerely doubt any triple screen user will enjoy as it is now.
    Reverting back to single 27", nah...as you wrote yourself, there is no going back.

    Because of the restrictions imposed by steam for refunds
    Best bet at this point is to refund and pick up from the bargain bin after release

    I can see you have a 1080Ti like I do.Are you running the game on NVIDIA Surround? I can drive on most available tracks without problem, except maybe some tight corners and yes mirror views isn't the best out there but I dont feel like the terrible experience you are sharing.not saying its not true, we are all different in our perception but saying the game is undriveable on triple is too much of a stretch for me. Have you also tried to tinkle the FOV settings to help?

    I have to say I am on tripples (3 x 1440P) and I enjoy the sim a lot. For me its much better compared to single screen though the side screens picture is stretched. Fingers crossed for propper tripple screen support though...
  20. Fanapryde

    Fanapryde Racer

    Nvidia surround: yes.
    Mirrors are tbh the worst I have seen in any (modern) sim.
    Tried every FOV, camera and seat position (even the non realistic ones) to be at least able to drive for a while: no improvement for me. I'm always very aware of what is happening around me (peripheral view) and the fisheye look of the sides is bothering me too much and causes nausea after some time. Switching to other sims is a relief.
    So yes, I have to stick with undriveable, but I'm happy for you and others that can enjoy this.
