Hi All, (P.S. Mod's hope this is in the right place)

Ok I have a three monitor setup which works well in WOT (DSC_0928.jpg~original) but not in WOWS.

 

Here are some pic's of what I get in the WOWS settings screens

I then have a bit of a think because I couldn't even change the sound setting's (dam music lol) so I went to the preferences.xml Make a BACKUP OF THE PREFERENCES.XML.  ( sound was edited to remove the music 1.000000 to 0.000000) save

<sound>
            <ui_volume>    1.000000    </ui_volume>
            <music_volume>    0.000000    </music_volume>
            <sound_volume>    1.000000    </sound_volume>
            <engines_volume>    1.000000    </engines_volume>
            <voice_volume>    1.000000    </voice_volume>
            <master_volume>    1.000000    </master_volume>
            <world_volume>    0.100000    </world_volume>
        </sound>

 

 Now onto the monitors, through trial and error I have the game working on all three screens this is what I did.

Open the preference.xml in notepad go to the bottom and find this. (Note these are my screen setting)

 </graphicsPreferences>
    <devicePreferences>
        <adapterOrdinal>    0    </adapterOrdinal>
        <windowed>    true    </windowed>
        <maximized>    true    </maximized>
        <waitVSync>    true    </waitVSync>
        <tripleBuffering>    true    </tripleBuffering>
        <aspectRatio>    1.333333    </aspectRatio>
        <gammaCorrection>    0.900000    </gammaCorrection>
        <windowedWidth>    1904    </windowedWidth>
        <windowedHeight>    1002    </windowedHeight>
        <fullscreenWidth>    1280    </fullscreenWidth>
        <fullscreenHeight>    800    </fullscreenHeight>
    </devicePreferences>

 

Right click on your own desktop and see what your screen resolution is, write it down (mine 5760x1080 )

Edit these high lighted bits in the preference.xml and change the <windowed>    true    </windowed> to false all so the  <maximized>    true    </maximized> to false.

The  aspectRatio was a trial and error and at 3.000000 it looked good for my setup but I settled for 5.000000.

Next go down to the  <fullscreenWidth>    1280    </fullscreenWidth>     <fullscreenHeight>    800    </fullscreenHeight> and change these to your own screen resolution mine is now

 <fullscreenWidth>    5760    </fullscreenWidth>
        <fullscreenHeight>    1080    </fullscreenHeight>  
SAVE FILE  it will now have your screen settings in the high lighted area's

 

</graphicsPreferences>
    <devicePreferences>
        <adapterOrdinal>    0    </adapterOrdinal>
        <windowed>    false    </windowed>
        <maximized>    false    </maximized>

        <waitVSync>    true    </waitVSync>
        <tripleBuffering>    true    </tripleBuffering>
        <aspectRatio>    5.000000    </aspectRatio>
        <gammaCorrection>    0.900000    </gammaCorrection>
        <windowedWidth>    1904    </windowedWidth>
        <windowedHeight>    1002    </windowedHeight>
        <fullscreenWidth>    5760    </fullscreenWidth>
        <fullscreenHeight>    1080    </fullscreenHeight>

 

 I have been playing like this for over a day now with no problems

Hope this helps those until Wargaming can fix the more than one monitor problem

Gets into a battle okay?  Can you access the menu and change settings after that config change?

 

It's been frustrating being limited to one panel for this game.

Howdy Snowy :)

 

Nice monitor setup btw ;)

 

I replaced my 3x display with 1 of these badboys: http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-34UC97

 

For those who might be curious- yes, WoWs supports ultra wide 21:9 ratio displays :D

 

Hit me up in game mate if you want to play :)
