I'm playing Rise of flight on a triple monitor setup using a Matrox Triplehead2Go setup. I either use 5040x1024 or 3840x1024 with bezel management switched on.

The problem I have is that the left and right monitors show, what might be described as, a slightly zoomed in view, is there anything I can do to resolve this or is this just the nature of the beast ?

Hi, welcome to WSGF.

The effect you are experiencing is called "Fisheye".

This is very common in almost every game when running at wide aspect ratios.

Please check out some of our documentation surrounding this subject here... http://widescreengamingforum.com/node/7185 and here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Vigu4bTwRk for an explination about what is happening.

Thanks for the reply.

At least I know what it is now, even if I can't fix it.

Yeah it gets a bit weird at times. When you glance into a side monitor, sometimes you think someone is right there next to you, but when you turn to look at them, they are far away.

As you say, nature of the beast until they learn to code it better.
