    Creating a custom resolution to dual screen (Eve Online)

    Okay so apparently I can't play my favorite game (thing/person) in dual screens as it doesn't really support it...

    Othe rplayers have found a work around by using it in a window which they then set a higher screenres on (twice the width, same hight).

    Problem is Eve-O pulls it's list of available resolutions from the computer, so i need to create a fake resolution that I have no intention of using, can this be done?

    I've tried using the nVidea control panel but it demands a successful test before it lets you add it.

    If you have the nVidia tool can't you simply use the combine screens option to make the computer treat the two screens as one continuous span. The game should then see this as the resolution and run fine.

    I think they call it dualview which they may have hidden in the later drivers but should still be enableable NVIDIA Forums > dual view missing

    Try using a software called Displayfusion, I use it for my triple screen setup. not sure if it will work in games though.

    Thanks for the tips, I should add this is for Windows 7 and from some of the information I have found suggets that nVidea removed the dualview as microsoft change the way some things worked...

    Can anyone confirm?

    I think they are planning on bringing out dual screen support in the next expansion:
