P3D v5 crashes when dragging to stretch over three monitors

Postby Army Paratrooper » Sun Jun 21, 2020 7:24 pm

Hello out there,

My P3D v5 crashes whenever I try to drag and stretch over three monitors. I tried the default full screen key stroke, which is ALT Enter, but when I do this, two screens go blank. I did a complete delete and re-installation, but the problem persists. The sim otherwise runs perfectly. My system specs are:

Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X Processor (16x 3.5GHZ/64MB L3 Cache)
Memory: 128 GB [32 GB x4] DDR4-3200 Memory Module - G.SKILL Trident Z (RGB LED)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 TI - 11GB GDDR6 - GIGABYTE GAMING OC (VR-Ready)

Can anyone help me?

Regards,

Jaime

I use 3 Monitors no problem in V5 (certainly adds to the in the cockpit feel)
I click views, new view, on main screen,VC view, unlock window, click and drag it over to the other screen/s
and then click and drag edges to full screen. and swivel view to line up with main screen.
I presume you do the same? maybe it is a memory problem ?

Thanks Tucanto, I found a work around. I just rest my Graphics Options to default, then it works. I can then go back and tweak things here and there. Thanks again.

OK, this is the method I used with FSX as well I had tried doing it through the graphics card, but it caused a lot of hassle
I also tried the other methods in the P3D manual ,without success.
Using three monitors has added to my enjoyment 100% and it is more stable to use them now than it has ever been with the improvements in P3D and Orbx.
