Default Games Spanning

I have twin view running and it is just as I want it with the exception of when running games. I am running UT and when the game comes up it spans both monitors. This is not that bad except I want the second monitor to be able to display other information than the game.

Is there a way to tell it to not span when in full screen video. Yes, I have checked the read me and have not seen anything because I still want the other monitor to display information.

Thanks

Switch to using proper Xinerama instead, games will then go fullscreen only on a single monitor, leaving the other showing the desktop.

Or try using the NoTwinViewXineramaInfo option in your X configuration.
