  3. Dual Monitor Problem

Game will not select my primary monitor to run on, it will only select my crummy old crt which in windows is secondary. I know I can play in windowed mode but thats a poor solution. Anyone have this problem and have been able to get the game to run on your primary monitor, full screen?

It is a known bug. The only resolution is to disable the 2nd monitor.
JoWood said a patch will be out next week that will address this.

I have the exact same problem. The worst part is that is also screws up all my desktop icons!

I mean did nobody on the development team run multiple monitors? Really?

Makes sense to have an old monitor still on your pc. D U H !

CRTs have better colours than lcds. their blacks are amaizing.

That has nothing to do with it. I'm running three brand new LCD monitors, and every game but Gothic seems to understand there is a reason the middle monitor is marked as primary. Disabling the outside two seems to currently be the only solution.

I actually had this problem at first, 2 monitors, extended desktop. I switched the monitors to graphics card hookups around and it loaded on my main monitor. Haven't rebooted since though, so no idea if it was luck or not. Can't think of anything else but to disable a monitor if it happens again :/ Although if you actually meant two seperate desktops, then I have no idea as I don't do that.
