    by the way, is there an option to get my desktop shortcuts etc on my middle screen instead of the left screen. I already tried to tell Windows my centre screen is the main screen but still my desktop icons are only displayed on the left screen. That is another unwanted behaviour with nVidia surround. :mad:

    I'm using DesktopOk, restores icon positions with every win-start and whenever you wish.

    Really? That is strange. does not work here.:eek:

    edit: what did you do @2ndLastJedi lol. Just tried it again and now they stay put. Even after a reboot. I suspect you of hacking... :D Tried this several times past week. Also the refresh option etc. Anyway, thanks m8.

    to make a long story short, i had the set-up working perfectly with triple screens in my pc ( a month ago). I removed the GPU to another pc and then re-installed back on original Pc. Then for some reason, when i enter the race, the image occupies 3 screens but everything is squeeze to the center monitor. If i change the view, i even get an up-side-down option .
    all setting are as suppose to be, from steam, to Nvidia surround, to in-game aspect ration and resolution. All updates drivers installed, tested the integrity of the game, no problem. I tried AC and no problem.
    I dont have idea what else to click..

    i give half second away for any help :)

    Guys, I've been away for a while. Last time I raced all was OK.
    I now started RR (had to wait for Steam to update the sim) and then I get to see this while in practice mode:

    Checked all settings I could remember, also the startup code in Steam. All seems to be OK but I get only the center screen to display a correct image, the right shows only stripes and the left does not correspond with the actual view either. Not possible to drive like that.
    Any ideas please ?

    Hi mate, how have you been in these strange times ? ;)
    For starters, thanks for directing me to these tips.
    I had some difficulties to wrap my head around all the new stuff (which seems to be a huge improvement) but all is working as it used to.
    But where is that graphics_options.xml located ? I couldn't find it - obviously didn't touch it - so do I still need to delete that ?

    Check, thanks. I overlooked that ;)
    Since all seems to be well now, is it still recommendable to delete it ?

    @fischhaltefolie yep, fine here too :)

    i had same problem last week. I was away for a while and got similar problem. At the end, i update the Nvidia GPU drivers, re-setup the surround and it did work (i kept the TriS.... on the launch menu on steam).
    Someone told me i should manage it from the Webmenu... and ignorant as i am, where is it? I assume we talk about the middle icon on top right of the main game's page, but i get lost from there. Can someone explain if that is the webmenu people talk or am i missing something

    The Webmenu is a new graphical interface for Raceroom. It is still in Beta and there might be issues if you use it during races etc but it has a pretty good triple-screen-setup-tool.
    You can try it out by adding -webmenu to your steam startup parameters.

    We are now three months into the year of our Lord, 2021. At this moment of our civilization, we still can’t run triple screens without Eyefinity/Surround in Raceroom...

    And 14 months after I first asked for seat tilt for triple screen users, still nothing.
    Just as well AMS2 is so good, the need for R3E is diminishing fast.

    Indeed. I really do not understand why this is not picked up by the developers.
    It can’t be that hard to program this.. :(
