Well, I figured out how to run Forza on multiple screens with the different views, center, left, right, rear, etc, and I decided to have a little fun with the way I released it. I made a weblog and posted a picture that had a riddle hidden in it telling how to get to the option. Now that it has been figured out, I have updated the site with a better picture and complete detailed instructions on how to do it. Check it out if you have the money for multiple screens, xboxes, and copies of Forza tongue.gif

Hey man, I am located about 45 miles south of you in Pauls Valley, OK...

We need to exchange gamer tags if you play on live any. Good to see another Okie on X-S.

I was disappointed to not find this feature in the retail version after it was so publicly flogged at all the trade shows. But thanks to you, I have now tested this out and it works beautifully. (I just wish I had third 19" monitor)

You've made my day. beerchug.gif

Well, I'm actually in Tulsa right now for the summer, living with my grandparents, Norman is, you might have guessed it, where I go to school (Boomer Sooner tongue.gif). I don't use live though unfortunatly, don't have the money to spend on it, but I do use Xlink.

This looks insanely cool.. Too bad I don't have 3 equal size displays around or I'd give it a go.

I want a setup like this tongue.gif

That's awesome!

I'm surprised they haven't rigged up a little LCD at the top too for the rear view mirror. tongue.gif

So judging from the network cockpit settings screen you can connect a max of 9 screens together... that means you could place your self within an octagon of screens, rig up your own rearview mirror to see the TVs behind you... and have ONE HELL OF A SIM experience.... plus an extra TV playing your "replay view"... oh it would be godly... biggrin.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif blink.gif tongue.gif rolleyes.gif

No, there's a max of 5 screens;

Rearview - Left - Center - Right - and the replay camera

There's also 10 channels (0-9) which you can select so ten multiscreen setups can be present on the same network for system link games.

Ahhh, now I see, I just glanced over it all for a minute as my other TV is in the repair shop... oh well, 8 screens would have been sweet! But I guess 5 is enough tongue.gif

This is insane!

I can't wait to try this out this weekend when I head over to my mate's place. I don't have enough Xboxen otherwise smile.gif

Also, what's the degrees settings for? Is this to adjust the gap between the screens or something?

Actually, sorry for such a delayed reply, but there is really no limit on how many screens you use. You can set more than one screen to a single view. For example, you may set more than one left or right, at different angles. Dunno how well that would work out since I don't have the equipment to do this, but it's possible to use as many screens as you want (or until you lag the hell out of the network I suppose tongue.gif)

I would like this setup for Halo, mabe xbox360 will have more of this built into the games.

maybe a game hack would let you get this for other games?
