This forum appears to be the best one for my question being that it is vidio/eyefinity related.
I am not able to get the game Crysis Maximum edition to function in an Eyefinity set up, that is, across 3 monitors. Otherwise, Eyefinity works great; I can drag windows across all 3 monitors at a resolution of 5760 x 1200 which is optimal for these monitors. For a single monitor, they are optimized at 1960 x 1200. When I launch Crysis, it only show up on one monitor and this game is supposed to work in Eyefinity.
I have contacted Crysis.com and they said contact crytek.com and go to the crymod.com forums. Crytek has no phone number, but I filled out a form on their web site; thus far, I've heard nothing from them. On crymod.com, I have received a few suggestion, but nothing works.
I am running one Radeon 5970 video card that has 2 DVI ports and 1 mini DisplayPort. The mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter (or dongle), has an additional USB to provide additional power. From the DVI side of the adapter, I have a cable to is DVI to HDMI. All 3 of my monitors use HDMI, they have no DVI.
I continue to search my favorite forums trying to figure this out.
Here's my set up:
Monitors: 3 Hanns-G, model HH281, running in an Eyefinity set up (3 monitors)
MB: Asus P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58
Proc: Intel Core i7-960 Bloomfield 3.2 GHz LGA 1366
Video: 1 Asus EAH 5970 (GPU: Radeon 5790)
Power Supply: BFG Tech EX-1200 Watts
Hard drives: 2 OCZ Vertex Series 30 GB internal solid state drives
Active Accell Mini DisplayPort to DVI Dual-Link Adapter, (this is powered by a USB) part number B087B-003J
Windows 7 64-bit (I don't know of any service packs at this time)
Video card has full Catalyst Software Suite version 10.2 (version 10.2 released, Feb 17, 2010)
Direct X End-User Runtimes (released Feb. 2010)
Yes, in the Crysis system setting options, I tried the setting of 5760 x 1200 and this crashed the video and I had to force a cold boot. Then I slowly increase the Crysis video settings from its default of 1080 x 720, incrementally up to 1920 x 1200. The video in the Crysis became shaky or jerky, so I lowered back to the game default.
Is this the same as aspect ratio? I am not clear of this term.
