Default twin view sees CRT as default

I am trying to set up twin view with my new LCD(fuji fp-988d) and it works for normal applications but when I use mplayer and dosbox it uses my second monitor(mitsubishi 87TXM) as the screen, but I want my LCD as the main monitor. Depending on what kind of video it will display it all wrong, as it will be only half the CRT screen.

It'll use full screen fine if I set the LCD as the only monitor and disconnect my CRT. Oddly, going to /var/log/Xorg.0.log my video card sees my LCD as CRT-0, but I'm guessing that's just the descriptor and nothing else.

I want to configure it as one screen and not as two separate screens.

here's part of my xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier "** nVidia Corporation NV34	[GeForce FX 5200]"
	driver "nvidia"
	VideoRam 128
	BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
	option "NvAgp" "1"
	option "TwinView"
	option "MetaModes" "1024x768 @1024x1024, 1280x1024"
	option "HorizSync" "30.00-86.00"
	option "VertRefresh" "50.00-130.00"
	option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.00-80.00"
	option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "55.00-75.00"
	option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
	option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, DFP-0"
EndSection
As you can see I had to set my LCD to the left of my CRT to get it to function as my normal desktop, so how do I get it to output in fullscreen as my main monitor?

The thing you probably need is PrimaryMonitor option that hasn't been implemented yet :-(
