Eyefinity / Surround Specific Solution & Issues

An ini edit is required to center the HUD and fix the squad selection screen:

Documents/My Games/Dawn of War 2/Settings/configuration.lua

{
setting = "horizontalmonitorcount",
value = 3,
},

If using a bezel-compensated resolution, try a value of 4 to move the UI even closer to the center of the display. Fractions are unsupported.
A value of 2 moves the UI to the inner edges of the sides screens, but the squad selection screen will be broken.

Fixing DoW2: Retribution may require the following steps: (the file to edit is Documents\My Games\Dawn of War II - Retribution\Settings\configuration.lua)

1) Edit the "screenheight" value to your single-screen resolution and start the game.
2) Select your triple-screen resolution from within the game options. You will have to Alt+F4 out of the game.
3) Set "horizontalmonitorcount" value to 3 and restart the game. The main menu screen should now be correctly scaled.
