    Placing monitors at 45 degree angle - sloping left and right view.

    Hi, I have asked this question in another thread (sort of hijacked- sorry)
    At the moment I am using 3 x 24" monitors which are at an angle of around 20deg, If I set them at 45deg, which is what I want for the 50" tv's I have planned then the runway etc is all wrong. They go uphill on the left and right monitor.
    I use Eyefinity with an ATI graphics card for the setup.
    Is there any way I can set them up to 45deg without distorting the view.
    Allan.
    I have added a photo, as you can see the horizon is not straight.

    By using the eyefinity setup you are simply stretching the forward view across three monitors, you could try playing with the view zoom to see if that helps a little but I think you won't be able to fix it completely. FSX does support 45 degree left and right views but you would need to open three individual views and your fps would certainly take a hit.

    Thanks,
    That is confirming what I thought, but it was worth asking.
    3 individual views is not an option, my FPS would be so bad I would be quicker animating it myself with some coloured pencils.
