I want to play far cry 2 on hdtv but keep desktop on vga. I've spent hours tryng to figure this out but can't. I have a AMD 6770 graphics card. Other games that have a "window" mode work fine. Apparently, Far Cry2 does not have a "window" mode.
Youll have to switch your main display to your HDTV. Or download a 3rd party program that lets you set what you monitor you want games to open to. But its a hassle and would just be easier to switch your "main display" to your HDTV when playing that game.
