Base Mosaic exposes both sets of options depending on the game. So for example I get 1920x1200 (my auxilliary displays) as well as 2560x1440 (my main display) and 6400x1200 (the spread of the 3) as options in a lot of games. I prefer constricting it to a single display though, so that's usually how I work it. Windows are also constrained to the display they are maximized on. I haven't actually tried playing any games spanned across the displays since the full screen toggle toggles the game to be fullscreen on the monitor it was originally placed on (I open things using a runner, and whatever screen my cursor is on is what screen the runner opens applications on - kind of useful for multi-monitor work since youc an more easily dictate which monitor stuff goes to rather than having to drag windows around from their default locations.

Base Mosaic looks & sounds pretty damned cool. biggrin.gif I'm not sure I'll ever use it - I think I'll probably just buy one 1440p monitor and call it a day - but it's nice to see Linux have these options available. smile.gif I just hope we can get multi-GPU support that WINE can take advantage of after it's translated the D3D calls to OpenGL (or Vulkan in the future). smile.gif

By the way, who is that in your avatar? I'm sure I've seen that cartoon villain before...

I think you've identified the next major step forward for WINE actually. It's much easier to directly translate the D3D calls to Vulkan or OpenCL than it is to translate them to OpenGL (since not all calls are created equal, which is why we get weird TNL bugs and things like particle emitters going nuts or geometry getting skewed) If we translate the calls to GPU instructions (which is what the API does originally anyways) instead of translating the calls to a different API (just to have that API translate its own calls to GPU instructions via the driver) we not only waste less cycles and gain better performance -- but we eliminate a vast majority of strange rendering issues. Vulkan and OpenCL are basically standardized GPU instruction sets, which makes the puzzle pieces fit together more easily.

As far as the avatar goes, this is actually from Pearl Jam's "Do the Evolution" music video. I always wished it was from an anime or cartoon series though - he'd make a great villain.

Also I apologize for the delay in reply, I don't spend nearly as much time on OCN as I used to...
