Diablo III is a dungeon crawler game that has been in development for over a decade, so its a shame it doesn't have proper multi-monitor support. That said the support that is in there is good enough, you have to use fullscreen windows mode but after that everything is correctly scaled, HUD is appropriately positioned and the game is horizontal plus. But being forced to use windows mode does mean that both Crossfire and SLI don't work, there is a hack available to force the game into fullscreen mode, they can be found here along with details of work arounds: http://www.wsgf.org/dr/diablo-iii/en
I'm sticking with the commentary for this game, still work in progress, but feel free to like or dislike my video and comment.

While this video can be watched on any screen it has been encoded to look best on a multi-monitor system, so if your running such a system, then select original quality from the drop down box and watch in fullscreen. Note: Although original is there for some reason you tube returns and error on the first 2-3 minutes of the video if you watch that part in original.










Copy paste of video description:

Diablo III on the PC, Original resolution was 5040x1050 aspect ratio of (48:10). If you are running a resolution with a width higher then 1920 (30'' monitor or multi monitor) set quality to original and view in fullscreen.

The game indirectly has support for multi-monitor systems, however the only way to get it working without a hack is by running the game in fullscreen windows mode. The WSGF does have hacks available though to force the game into your desktops resolution in fullscreen mode, which can be found here: http://www.wsgf.org/dr/diablo-iii/en

Thanks for sharing, looks like 3x monitoring for this game is not worth it since the sides stay pretty dark and void of action as everything is focused around the middle.

I guess the advantage is you could have your inventory open all the time on the side

I happen to like my Razer Naga :p  I did notice the click click click though, testimony to how surprisingly good the mic is on my G35 headset, although I still think it makes me sound 10 years younger then I really am.

I could probably remove the clicking in post production, but for a game like this, I don't think its an issue that its in the video.

Haha yeah I was just messing with you, the clicking in D3 brings in nostalgia from games past. What are other games that you've run this setup in? D3 has nice artwork but isn't super intense in a graphical sense, this setup could make some games truly come alive.

Every game I can get running on my triple-monitor setup I play on it, and any that I can get to record go up on my you tube channel normally, so rather then listing them its quicker just to point you to my channel link in the first post or this playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL71464E337E095FD3...
