    After some messing about changing settings I seem to have sorted it. In the Raceroom profile in the Radeon settings I change the aspect ratio setting to preserve aspect ratio and all seems good. Thanks for your reply

    Hello, I followed the steps for the three monitors, and when I start the game the side screens are black, and everything appears on the central monitor! could you help me? Thank you

    Did you enable Surround in your graphic drivers?

    What does your startup argument look like?

    Or perhaps just press "ALT" + "Return" to enter Fullscreenmode?

    When in the menu/loading screen the side monitors are indeed black. they just have an image when being on track.
    That's what it is with my setup too

    have you set the full aspect ratio in the graphics settings? 48:9 or so

    is it the same in full screen and window mode?

    nvidia or amd?

    I had the same problem. Could not see the appropriate screen res 7680x1440 or 5760x1080. After some fiddling around in the menus I noticed the aspect ratio. Was 16:9 instead of 48:9

    The only thing which bothers me a bit is the distortion on the side panels. It is stretched out. In Pcars I do not see the behaviour.

    Which probably means that you have not made a proper triple setup in Steam launcher.
    There should be no stretching on the side screens. At least not on my system.

    Thanks. I will mesure everything again but as far as I see everything looks ok.
    I’ll wait until my sim-lab stand drops on my doorstep. It will be delivered this Monday. I’ll then assemble everything and will mesure things again.
    At the moment it is far from ideal. Beside that, it is great to race with a triple setup. Not the same immersion as with VR of course, you miss the 3D and actually be in the car on the track but it comes close. And big plus is the resolution. 7680x1440 is a nice resolution although I think I turn it a bit down to 5760x1080.
    The FPS is in Higres between the 55-90. With the lower res it is between the 90-150 easily.

    Haha let's hope. Not cheap for just keeping 3 screens tied together. :D

    But on a serious note, if you notice stretching on the side monitors there must be some setting that is off.
    R3E triple support is well implemented and should give the optimal view.

    Does somebody here has the Sim_Lab 75/100 triple screen stand?
    I'm strugeling to mount the crossbar to the uprights. If yes, can you post some photos on the connection from crossbar to the uprights. When I attache my screens the left en right arms will start bending toward the ground. They tilt downwards due to the weight of the screens. This should not happen of course. So I presume I mount things wrong.
