Dual Screen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was hoping for some advice on running dual screens. I spent a month setting up rocket launcher and big box on my computer. Once it was setup I wanted to plug it into my 4k TV also.

My problem has been running the dual screen with two devices with drastically different sizes and resolutions.

Any advice on the best setup. Ideally I want big box to launch on the TV and use my other screen just for downloading and running background programs.

I've run into a lot of resolution and screen size problems

Any advice would be appreciated

Will

I'm laying in my room on my 3 monitor setup for some reason BigBox always launches on my TV though I can have LaunchBox on either of my landscape screens or my portrait monitor and it displays fine. Do you have an issue with BigBox opening on either screen randomly I ask because mine always launches on my TV don't know if it is dumb luck but it is 100% opening on the TV and always rendered correctly there. I just did a little testing and it seems that LB displays correct on my TV and on my portrait monitor but on my 24 inch LG monitor it renders all stretched out with none of the controls on the right side of the screen so there are some issues with it rendering correctly on different size screens

I actually figured it out last night. It's always the simple things. I had to set my TVs hdmi port to PC. Once i did this everything went fine. I appreciate the help and time though. Thanks
