Multiple Monitors

  • Would it be possible for a Construct game to run on two monitors at once...

    (i.e. One monitor is the game, the other is a HUD or whatever)

    Essentially I'd like to take one layer and stick it on a second monitor. Perhaps if I span the desktop so my horizontal resolution is double, then double the screen width on my project..?

    Anyone tried this?

  • Some graphics cards can treat both monitors as just one really long one - in which case it would work fine, you'd just have to make your game span both and position your elements accordingly...

  • may i point out that most people only have 1 monitor per pc. a lot of people won't be able to play this.

    Got it. I'll try it with the SPAN DESKTOPS setup (when I get everything dialed in!) and report back.

    I'm making this game for a dedicated arcade cabinet with a half-silvered mirror and specialized controls, etc... It actually makes it easier when I don't have to worry about various resolutions, CPUs, GPUs.

    I might try to make a more vanilla version for use on a regular PC (That one'll be single monitor only!)

  • I've read a great article in an australian games mag couple years ago, about building one of those and it looked awesome. I remember dreaming about building it, but never really started I hope you'll share photos of your final product with us. gl
