Do I do the hack before I enable Surround? Thanks.
Yes. It's best to enable the hack before you enable surround.

Vega did it successfully, we'll have to have him post a HOWTO. I know we badly need a HOWTO for surround LIghtBoost setups...

The best way to do this is to enable LightBoost, THEN disable 3D stereoscopic, THEN combine your monitors. And use ToastyX CRU to switch to a LightBoost-compatible mode. One good tip; You don't need to use the lightboost.bin file, but create resolution with sufficiently large Vertical Totals (1147 and up); that re-enables LightBoost.

You can fix the problem by following this tip found in the LightBoost HOWTO.
Quote:
TIP: Improving Convenience, Stability & Eliminating “Control+T”:
Once you’ve verified LightBoost works (Step 12), and the registry tweak was already installed (Step 4), you can make LightBoost “stick” by going to nVidia Control Panel and disabling “Enable Stereoscopic 3D” (clear the checkbox in Step 8). If the screen did not flicker when doing this, LightBoost is still enabled even after disabling 3D!
– Games launch in 2D without needing Control+T
– Driver stability is improved in this mode, less freezing occurs.
- VSYNC OFF now works much more reliably, reducing input lag, fps higher than Hz.
(Note: Some games may automatically switch resolutions; make sure it stays at 120 Hz)

Sort of in the same boat as you Virus86. I am trying to get lightboost to work in the Span-displays with surround option to have it act as one large screen. I can use toasty's CRU utility to enable lightboost with his .bin file on all three monitors. However, when it comes time to try and link them into one display whether in portrait, or landscape, the driver crashes.

Vega has a video of Lightboost in portrait, but I'm thinking he may have used a custom window mode for his demo as opposed to span multiple displays.

SURROUND LIGHTBOOST INSTRUCTIONS

I have not used Toastyx's version, I just do it the original way I discovered works as I have gotten really quick at it:

1. Have "all displays active". Not surround.
2. Change all monitors so that they are *not* running at 120 Hz, use something other.
3. Create a custom resolution via NVIDIA control panel with the following timings for all three monitors:

120LB.jpg


4. Once the resolution is created on all three monitors to look as above, switch all three monitors to that resolution.
5. *OPTIONAL* depending if your monitors are or are not *stuck* in Lightboost mode. If not in LB mode, configure 3D to enable them. If in LB mode, go to next step.
6. Monitors should now be in non-Surround LB mode. Open CRU.exe
7. Make all monitors look like this:

Settings.jpg


8. You can use the copy and import/export feature at your leisure. *Note: removing all other resolutions/options in CRU.exe may be imperative to get some games to run (by force) your LB resolution and not some other resolution/refresh rate! As an example, on my display setup the only resolution options I have are non-bezel corrected 3240x1920, bezel corrected 3340x1920 and single monitor 1920x1080. Not sure why you would want all those other "trash" resolutions available anyway.
9. Reboot.
10. Verify monitors are still in LB mode.
11. Configure Surround as normal.
12. Enjoy Surround Lightboost epicness.

You won't ever have to mess with these settings again unless you re-install the driver, or you unplug the monitor(s) for more then a few seconds.

Can anyone help me, plz ?

Just got back from a bike-ride, and this was the first forum I checked to see if Vega posted. LoL Awesome Vega! Will try this and report back. Just one question, though. Can you flip all three monitors to portrait before doing the steps above, or do you flip the surround screen to portrait afterwards?

Only hard thing about your instructions vega... was trying to read them side-ways. If you want to flip into portrait mode, do after you link the displays, there will be some radio buttons to choose landscape,portriat, and flipped.

Rep to you Vega. Confirmed that your instructions work for Surround Lightboost. They are definitely not the same as getting one monitor to work.

Now to figure out how to calibrate them.
post #820 of 2929
Yes, you can freely swap between landscape and portrait Lightboost surround as long as "3D" is not checked. wink.gif
