Has anyone had any luck getting OpenGL to run on multiple monitors? Does it work in windowed mode, only in full screen mode, or not at all. Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes... and yes. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

I run Win2K with a dual monitor setup.

First and foremost, I've gotten ahold of nvidia regarding an issue with multimonitor support and OpenGL - there's a bug in the drivers - they're fixing it for the next release.

Secondly, what nvidia told me is that you can run OGL across all monitors, but the default mode is non-accelerated (its not possible to accelerate across cards).

Thirdly, it works fine in windowed mode provided that the window originates on and stays on one and only one video card. (All drivers - except nvidia for now). This is (should be) accelerated.

Hope this helps.
