Matrox publishes a list of games that support their multi-display hardware.

The Unreal Tournament 2003/4 ini file tweak works for NVIDIA cards, but I haven't tried any others.

Default Re: Multiscreen games

well i got Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory working with multiscreen..lol

1) Run game 1st time (required to create configuration file)
2) Go to Wolfenstein installed directory
3) Go to \Main subdirectory (in et go to etmain and your profile)
4) Edit file 'wolfconfig_mp.cfg' (for multiplayer gameplay)
5) Find line 'seta r_customwidth', set to "2400" (if not present, add 'seta r_customwidth "2400"')
6) Find line 'seta r_customheight', set to "600" (if not present, add 'seta r_customheight "600"')
7) Find the line 'seta r_mode' set to "-1"
8) Find line 'seta cg_fov', set to "143" (if not present, add 'seta cg_fov "138"')
9) Edit the Wolfenstein Multiplayer shortcut (Right-click on shortcut --> Properties)
10) Add '+set sv_cheats 1' to the end of the 'Target' line.
11) Run multiplayer game (HUD should now be only displaying on central screen).

Note: Do not change resolution in-game, or these changes will have to be repeated.

that is how you do it... i got this from the link ricercar give me.... under Return to Castle Wolfenstein....

but i'm still working with the res... since the buttons are too big...lol
i will post a picture later on...

Having had a Parhelia, with three monitors, it rocks to have it across three screens. Two screens is too hard, since the middle of the screen is where you shoot... Too bad it wouldn't work worth a crap in linux, now I have a 6800 GT.
