    Default Eyefinity 3 Monitor Setup. 5760x1080 Resolution.

    Hello Community,

    I have recently built myself a new PC, and plan/wish to run DDO at 5760x1080 resolution. I can run other MMO's that I play(ed) at this resolution perfectly.

    When I try to run DDO it works almost just as well, except for a few UI things, mainly the exp bar.

    The exp bar runs all the way through the left monitor, and then a fourth of the way through the middle one.

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks,
    -Tova

    I have no answer for your need but may i request a screenshot of pretty much any kind of gameplay in that resolution? I have used dual 1920x1080s for some time and always wanted to take the next step to add the 3rd monitor. Seeing the real estate available in your game may help further persuade me. Please provide a screenshot of some gameplay somewhere including hotbars, etc.

    Ask Roman if he had any similar issues.

    If you're wanting to use Eyefinity, and play your games across 3 monitors, you'll need a decent graphics card, with a Display Port, or a GTX 680. Not to mention the adapter you'd also have to buy to set up said Display Port to the DVI port on your 3rd monitor. I'll put up a screenshot later, I'm really enjoying playing the MMO's I play with this feature.

    He has the same issue. Look at his exp bar at the bottom left. I'm hoping there is a way to play across 3 monitors, and have the exp bar go through the middle and only the middle monitor.

    That is quite rad, the image in that thread.

    Also of note is the XP bar in that image seems to be taking up 3/4 of the left monitor, assuming the right edge of his hotbars is the right edge of the left monitor.

    Edit for additional reply: running one EVGA 580 classified atm, My intentions were to either get triplehead2go or a 2nd 580 classified for sli to achieve 3rd monitor.

    His 3 monitors are each 30", mine are each 23".

    If his were 23", it would be just the same problem.

    Edit to reply to your edit: I would suggest getting a GTX 680, thus running eyefinity with 1 Graphics card, instead of two, and not having to deal with a Display Port.

    That was a while ago. Perhaps he has resolved it by now. I'd send him a PM if I were you.

    Sadly you can't move/extend the XP Bar.

    The now famous "&" has to be tucked at the bottom left of your display, whatever the number of screens are included in your display.

    I'll have to check my setup ( 3840*1080, Dual Screen ) to see exactly how the XP bar works... To be honest
    since before U14 it was cut somewhere along the way towards the other side of the display, I didn't bother looking seriously at it in U15 and just assumed it was the same.
    On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...

    Default Custom UI

    Perhaps someone will make a new custom UI skin soon that will be able to be tweaked.

    It has been quite some time since I have seen any new ones pop up. I used to have a few custom skins before they came out with the new UI...
    SARLONA: Mythical- Kace, Axle, Boarshead, Dweomer. Lloth's Children- Imperel, Grumph, Shaydes. ARGO: DRAGON- Drygaien, MPAKT. Warrior's Soul- Dweomer, Phealer, Quickkick, UrsaMajor.

    A custom UI skin to fix this problem would be great. I find it annoying.
