Ok so I can't get Single screen mode to work in BF3 anymore

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been running BF3 in eyefinity which does not work well as we all know. So I tried to reduce the res to 4800x900 and then the indicators for everyone look right but the image is crappy looking. I did get it to go back into 5760x1080 and had the indicators look right but the mini map and gun status bar are off to the far left or far right and looked stretched. This only worked once, and I can not get it run at 5760x1080 again with the names showing over peoples head. Anyway I did get it to go into singel monitor mode with Cf working last week by just disbaling eyefinity in CCC and then running the game, and it did it on its own. So I tried it last night and no matter what i did I could not get it to run in single screen with CF enabled. I set the res in game to 1920x1080 and hit esc or back and it will not save so I hit apply fullscreen res and it either freezes or goes into full screen with the left and right monitors blacked out but the image in the center monitor is blown up far too large and I can not see the menus at all. I then tried to use extended monitor modes and it still wont work. What do I need to do or what are you guys doing?

I also tried to make presets in CCC for eyefinity and extended screen moes with hotkeys and when I hit the hotkey nothing happens and if I select the preset in CCC nothing happenes.

Follow the instructions a few pages from the end of the Eyefinity thread. I had some issues at first, and it messed up my eyefinity and screen orientation, even windows was having a fit showing some strange monitor configuration.

I did the full uninstall of all drivers, caps etc, that didnt fix it though. I was actually getting a double image displayed on the centre monitor at one point, and/or it would crash in single monitor mode too.

Basically undo everything you did, turn off the other monitors and disable them completely. Remove any eyefinity groups, go back to the one screen and make sure it is number 1 and primary in CCC. You may like to reinstall drivers here to be safe, thats up to you. I ended up removing my CAPS at this point, and then had to redo the steps to get eyefinity back. One other step i did was open up the settings file in the BF3 folder in my documents, the last one of the 3, sorry i cant remember off the top of my head, i think its the PROF one or something. There are 2 resolutions set in here on lines around 26-28, one for horizontal and obviously vertical. My vertical was fine on 1080, but i changed my horizontal to 5760 manually. After messing around with these things, i redid the instructions from the Eyefinity thread, including the one I posted regarding the HUD. I have full 5760x1080 with player tags AND hud wherever i want it horizontally. I noticed some discrepancies with vsync and stutter, so i am playing with vsync off.
