Assetto Corsa runs great on all three monitors. Project CARS does not have triple screen support. But I know GPL can be run on three screens. I did some quick research and havn't found much in the way of a How To, and nothing that is recent. Does anyone know what I need to do to make GPL display on all three screens?

I tried (selected in the GPL list - not thru GEM) the D3dV2 raster on 5760 x 1080 resolution and it crashed GPL.
I have spent almost 6 hours dealing with my connection issue and the triple screen setup and neither work. I am getting frustrated.

It requires a little luck with server, the ISP & the Router you use...these settings are from GPL4U server, remember the IP address of the server & lock it, so that the next time you turn on the PC, that you don't get a new IP.
113 113 TCP 6667 6667 TCP
6969 6971 UDP
30199 30199 UDP
32766 32786 UDP
As I said, it can tease...on my old router with VDSLv2 (50/10) I could not join GPL4U through GEM+ or VROC, but through lan. On my new Router (cable 340/60) it works perfectly & can join through GEM+ & VROC.
If it fails again, read more here:

Another must (at least in case of AMD) is that at least 1 monitor must be connected via displayport, otherwise only 2 screens will work (or using an active displayportadapter). I have a setting in my gfxcarddriver called eyefinity which lets you combine different monitors to one virtual desktop. then i write this resolution (4680*1024) into GEM. but there is another tool where you can set custom resolution without using GEM, cant remember the name though. hope you get it to work, its quite immersive and helps with spatial awareness as well:)

I have Surround instead, but works the same. Like I said, I think it will resolve itself once GEM is letting me thru.

Strange how monitors are in inches worldwide in spite of the metric system.
Even tho I am in the states, I use metric all the time at work because we work with China for manufacturing.

Yes it's kind of weird monitors are still in inches hahaha

PS: I have a displayport to DVI cable to make 3 monitors work, as Gerd mentioned. Will report back tomorrow night.

Might be able to pick up a very cheap secondhand active adapter (need to hear from that guy coming weekend), otherwise will order one for 17€ at Monday (arriving Tuesday then)...aiming to run St-Jovite at triple screen and a nice FOV if possible...
Anyway, ppl with older AMD cards and older monitors can ask me what to do and what they need if they want to setup for triple screens

It's using the OpenGLV2 rasters right now, I have to try the D3DV2 rasters next.
The fov is whacked, but I have GPLShift and FovED so I should be good.
Thanks to all who helped
Forgot to add the reason the triple screens are working.... I downloaded and installed the GPL install Bob suggested in the other thread and now everything works.

-you need a video card with enough HDMI and Display Ports to support three screens
-you need three screens
-download the V2 rasterizers and install them - some downloads have them already installed - look in the main GPL directory to see if you already have them
-most likely you need to have GEM running to select the proper driver - only the OpenGLV2 rasterizers support triple screen resolutions
-depending on your monitors, the resolution you need to select in GPL should look something like 5760x1080
Your field of view will be whacked, but you can adjust that with GPL Shift. FOV adjustment in GEM is helpful, but doesn't do a whole lot. There is also a program called FovEd that adjusts the field of view. I think it offers more adjustment than GEM does - I havn't tested it tho.

I have not tried the D3DV2s with one screen.
