In Rift I had 2 screens. Main screen had the currently controlled character in fullscreen and the second screen had a DX Nothing window with the other 2 characters and bunch of little tracking windows that were very handy (windows that I could click on to accept quests or change tracked quests etc).
Now I have 3 screens and a Sli surround setup in 3 x portrait mode. This gives me a gigantic 3600x1920 desktop.
I have done an initial setup of SW ToR with the current character at 3600x1920 and the second character as a little window (900x480) overlaid the main screen in the bottom right. I just click on the little window to swap it out to the big window.
EDIT: Did some more reading and got #3 covered. What
I need is stacked windows with Video FX feeds and repeater regions. I remember doing this in Rift now.
1. Should my game settings be Fullscreen, Fullscreen(Window) or Windowed?
I am not getting great performance, I get about 30-40FPS on medium settings with both characters running at 3600x1920.
2. Who do I pay for pass through targeting? This seems like a big miss for this game, I can't remember playing a MMORPG without it. It is making it much more difficult than need be to set up the keys as everything first needs a target tank and then a target target's target. Yuck.
3. My screen set up at the moment is functional for two characters but could be better. Specifically what I would like is both games running as stacked fullsize windows and have the non-controlled character have a smaller overlay window on the currently controlled characters screen. I believe I need to do that so I can pull out the cool little passthrough windows to the controlled window for hotbar clicking and stuff (my memory is being jogged now - for the pass through windows do both windows just need to be at the same resolution and not necessarily stacked?).
Any help is much appreciated, it is fun to be back
