Found a new display issue w/GameExtender
Posted 18 August 2012 - 04:56 AM
I found that if you have more than 2 monitors (I have 3) and display 2 is your main display and display 1 and 3 are extended desktop that GameExtender will not run or display anything on the secondary display. The secondary display in my case would be the main display since it's identity is 2. Now I put in a request to hopefully be able to choose which display GameExtender will display on for each emulator.
So say Atari 2600 have GameExtender display on Monitor 3 and Visual Pinball to display on monitor 1 for instance.
Unless this can't be done with GameExtender. I just seem to like GameExtender the best since it is just so easy to use.

Display 1: Dell E176FP 1280x1024 (Perfect for my Pinball Backglasses so here is where I want GameExtender to display Visual Pinall on.)
Display 2: Vizio HDTV 1920x1080 Primary Display
Display 3: Samsung SyncMaster 1050x1680 Portait Mode (This is where I want GameExtender to display most of my other emulators on for the most part)

Not sure if I'm right on that TBH, but it made sense in my head.

Thanks for the props though.

Ill admit I have not looked at yet but i thought it was a replacement. How does it integrate with GameExte4nder?
My plugin is made specifically for monitor 2, to integrate with GaneExtender. It's really more of an enhancement to what's already there. It's pretty much gonna be the same.
Thanks for the props though.

Did that make sense? Sometimes I stink at descriptions. It's really nothing like iMagic at all (which I assume you're thinking of), but I used ideas from that and refined them into this to "enhance" what's already being done by you.

iMagic! Dangit! That's what I was attempting to suggest in my post above. The Game Info Plugin is also very cool, but iMagic is what I was attempting to recall. That Adultery, give him a chance and he's going to develop half a dozen awesome plug-ins before you finish even looking at the first one!

In a second Tom, I added settings to disable the jukebox and the screensaver and a super simple GUI. Let me build it and upload it.
Sorry to hijack Krakerman...
Hmmm so Tom being that you have read the above do you have any ideas on adding a 3rd monitor support for GameExtender?

I have been looking at other programs for viewing images with multi-monitor support kinda like irfanview and maybe one of those might have command line options for viewing images on different monitors. Maybe that might be an alternative way unless you can do that with irfanview 'm not sure as I haven't really messed with it's command line options. I also heard of Image Magick maybe that can do it.
