    Smile Display problem with FS2004, opening page

    I am running Fs2004, across 3 monitors via a TH2GO, the outside view is on the far right hand side, which displays the FS2004 shortcut icon.

    The problem I currently have is that once the flight sim starts up, the opening page and selection page is shown on the 2 screens which are partially hidden in the MIP, this makes it hard to select the aircraft.

    Does anyone know how to move this opening page to the right hand side so that it comes up on my outside view. I have tried to drag the page and other methods but nothing works...

    If anyone has overcome a similar problem, could they please let me know.

    Many Thanks

    Try this. FS2004 should run in Windows mode on 1 monitor. Then move the whole FS2004 window to the monitor you want the start screen to be. Close Fs2004 to store the settings.

    Then reopen FS2004. The opening splash screen should open on that monitor next time. It looks like FS2004 stores the position of the last time you exited FS2004 in Windows mode. Then it will restore the last mode you were in before exit i.e. Full Screen or Windows mode.

    Reply for 2 monitors

    Have you got two output ports on your graphics card? there maybe 1 x VGA (15 pin socket) and a 1 x DVI socket If you have these then either with a DVI / VGA adaptor plug in two screens.
    Then go into the display settings on on your PC and you should see 2 screens, one will have a box that you can click to span the windows across both screens.
    Then once the Flight sim is running, pause it and undock the windows and drag them to the screen you want, saving the flight at this stage so you can go back to it and fly with the same display...

    I hope this helps
    Andy
