  • surround gaming...?

    OK, i think i may just be an idiot for asking this, but is there anything special i need to do to enable surround gaming? I got my parhelia today (!) and i just spent sometime looking for two more monitors and power plugs and such and set it all up. The reef demo looks spectacular on all 3 monitors, but quake3 doesnt work? It only uses one monitor... do i need the lates q3 patch? or enable something in some config for it to work? any help would be appreciated Mungu needs to get to some surround!

    You need to do a bit of tinkering...

    How to configure Surroung Gaming for Quake 3 Arena:

    1) Go to Quake 3 directory
    2) Go to \baseq3 subdirectory
    3) Edit file 'q3config.cfg' (use Wordpad)
    4) Find line 'seta r_customwidth', set to "2400"
    5) Find line 'seta r_customheight', set to "600"
    6) Find the line 'seta r_mode' set to "-1"
    7) Find line 'seta cg_fov', set to "143" - if this line is not present, add 'seta cg_fov "143"' to the end of the file.
    8) Edit registry
    9) Find line \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Serv ices\MTXPARH\Device0
    10) Add binary key named 'OGL.TripleHead' - set to '01 00 00 00'
    11) Run game (HUD should now be only displaying on central screen).

    Note: Do not change resolution in-game, or these changes will have to be repeated.
