My mate had 3 screens setup and it was pretty cool. So you had a view out each window. You can map a button on your wheel to look left if you want. Would that help?

yea jd ive got the look left right button happening but it stuffs you up when the view jumps across to the left at 160kmph, its good for checking down the pit lane as you pull out the gararge though
one screen to look out the front with the right mirror and inside mirroras it is now and a second screen with the left of the car and left mirror would be cool i think, but not sure if you could add the left with out it looking like your sitting in the back seat or middle of the car A

Ok m8, When my mate had it it looked perfect with 3 screens & the speed felt brilliant with everything rushing past your side windows.

i found this it was interesting
the video near the bottom CAM ADJUSTMENT TUTORIAL VIDEO was worth a look
but i dont think you can move camera right enough to have one monitor (main monitor 22inc wide screen) front view
and one to the left (19inc normal) as left mirror left window to look at at a glance

i had my one and my little girls one hooked together but didn't like it A


this is a good point though what his other guy said
I find this tutorial not just unhelpful but even quite malicious for the community.

First of all it suggests you shutting off most of the peripheral view by reducing your windshield to that small rectangle. As a result you simply wouldn't see cars right ahead of you if they are a bit on the left or on the right. That will automatically make you a dangerous driver when fighting for position or driving in traffic. To put it simply it is not realistic to shut off things you always see in real life.

Have another look at the first picture. Try and paint black all the windshield of that car except the bit inside the rectangle. Let's see if the authorities allow that to race or drive on public roads.

Secondly the author suggests tweaking cam files which as league organizer I find very naughty. Simply put, that is cheating in any league with forced driving view. Thankfully ISI thought about that, so rFactor checks the cam files when joining the server to prevent this. In any case tweaking cam files is a bad habit.

I can see the overall point the article is making. But getting the distance and FOV right simply isn't worth sacrificing so much of the view that the real drivers can see at all time without turning their head.

I have a 22" wide screen monitor and i have just scored a pair of old 17" monitors from work. (We're getting all new stuff).

Unfortunately, my computer only has two monitor sockets and the 2 into 1 adapter lead i have doesn't fit. So until i can get a new adapter lead, I can only run two monitors. I'm not sure how this will work...

I went to Dick smith today for a VGA Y cable, too plug my two new monitors into the one socket, but the chick said it will only give me a mirror image on both monitors. What is the point of that?

She says i need to upgrade my graphics card or buy a new KVSA something or other switch, which they dont stock. Seems like going to triple monitors is harder than i thought.

twin monitors are fine but you'll still be racing on one and say TS on the other
you really need a graphics card capable of running 3 monitors so you dont end up with the borders of the monitor impacting on the main focus point when driving.
