    Hi,
    I’d like to add multi-monitor support in full screen mode to the list of desirable features. In my case I’m running 3 x 4k monitors and it’d be fabulous if Overload could run in all 3 and give something like a 180° field of view.

    Cheers!

    Does mention Simultaneous Multi-Projection, though it doesn’t mention if it can be used for 3 or more displays.

    It’s already there.
    I play on 3 monitors and it works great.

    Assuming you have an Nvidia card.
    You need to enable Nvidia surround and it will then make a single display.
    You can configure bezel sizes so that things seem to go behind the bezel.
    Using surround is amazingly faster than running separate directx views on each display.
    DCS lets you do this and the frame rate sucks compared to surround.

    I run 3 1920 x 1200 displays when I include bezel my resolution is 6000×1200
    This seems to run smooth on a 1060 gtx.

    It would be nice if they would add something to adjust for monitor angle.
    But I’m okay with what’s there right now.

    The extra field of view really does help in almost all games.
    This setup works in Fortnite, Rocket League, Elite Dangerous, DCS world and many others.

    Do you angle the monitors into a U or V shape? If so is the perspective correct for each?

    Yes, my monitors on the side are angled.
    Sadly, no they don’t have any correction for this.

    I’ve only seen one game that does this which is Asseto Corsa.
    Asseto Corsa is a racing simulator.
    I’m still confused why DCS world doesn’t do this as they probably have the most multi monitor users.

    While the perspective on the side monitors is a little off I can live with this.
    Its better than not having them.. or the monitors can be moved to being flat.

    Having 3 monitors is rare and for a new game i’m just happy they support the super wide display.
    With this setup I do recommend adjusting the FOV to its max setting.
