View Full Version : Windows Multi-Monitor



03-16-2001, 06:43 AM
Hello,

What does anybody know about multi-monitor support for OpenGL on Win98/2000? I have learned that OpenGL is software rendered to the second display. Obviously that will not do.

We would like to run two seperate h/w accelerated OpenGL apps on each monitor. Is this currently possible?

Any info is very much appreciated.

I read a post in the advanced forum saying that MS updated the opengl32.dll for multimonitor support on win2000.

That was said, but *how* you do it remains a mystery. It seems that the vendors drivers must support this, or it will not work.

Yes, the drivers and the cards must support it.

Take a look at this thread:
