You may have to set up either an eyefinity (for AMD graphics cards) or 3d Vision Surround (for Nvidia) then it should appear in GPBikes

Thats how nick got his set up anyway.

Yea like Matty says it isn't supported as 3 separately drawn screens in game.
I use Eyefinity to set up the 3 screens (as one) then GPBIKES matches up the resolution.

It is a shame really because GPB is probably one of the few games that could run a seperately drawn 3 screen setup without having to have an uber rig to keep the FPS up.

But its still very good. Racing in all views, and even watching replays is a treat.

Why would it e better withuot eyefinity/vision surround ?
Is there any penalty is using them ?

P.S.
Still waiting for a (serious) review of this: https://www.cnet.com/products/samsung-c49hg90/preview/

A while back PiBoSo posted something in the WRS section about setting up triple screens so they would run with each screen rendered seperatly. If i recall correctly Nick posted in it aswell, but to this day i never figured out how to get it working. But as GP Bikes is the same engine as WRS i recon proper triple screen support should be possible as PiBoSo was experimenting with it earlier...

You would still need your Gfx softwate to create the 3 screen environment but it would be better if the game rendered each screen individually rather than stretching it to keep proportions right, on top of improving FOV.

DCS is a nice example where you can set up 3 monitors either as one big resolution like GPB or each with their own rendering. Very process heavy but a great result.

I will have to have a search Jamoz I have slept since then so don't remember to be honest; that last test was a quick knockup on the kitchen table now i have it permanent. ::)

If I find sommat to get GPB to do it I will post back as it will be extremely interesting. Likewise, if anyone finds out how....

There's no stretching: GPB (and all PiBoSo games, I guess) are Hor+ games, which means that if you have more horizontal space, the game will give you more (horizontal) FOV without any deformation. I'm sure (despite having a single monitor) because I asked the question directly to PiBoSo.

So I think that using Eyefinity / Vision Surround GPB is the way to go anyway.
