Multimonitor bug!
« on: 25 May '03 - 22:16 »
1st off, I LOVE XMPLAY! IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER! Kudos!

Ok so here is the bug...
I have a dual display but I want to use XM play on my secondary monitor but it refuses to leave the main screen...

I am willing to test the multi-monitor beta if any comes out.

Works fine for me (Win2k, 1152x864 as primary, 800x600 as secondary to right of primary), but you'll need to drag it over yourself (any change to the main window e.g. skin/mini-mode will make it go back to the first window).

*Watches "Indianna Jones and the Holy Grail" on TV*

It's at the point when Indy's dad has been shot, and Indy says "The repenentant man is humble before God. The repenentant man kneels before God. Kneel!"

:laugh:

Sometimes I hook my PC up to my TV and play old, emulated console games with my gamepad... And suddenly I feel like being back in the early 90's! ;D

@Indy: Don't recognize the scene - I've only seen the movie once - and that was in German. ;)

It's the bit where he ducks to avoid a couple of spinning blade-type things which have decapitated the last two people to make there way through. It's just after his father gets shot.

The reason it isn't working is that I use a secondary monitor ON TOP (as in above) my monitor, not to the left or right.... it simply doesn't allow me to drag it there :(

Ahhh, alright, I see that one happening here, too - but only when moving the second monitor on top of the first one... Tried switching priorities yet?

I think it's because it won't let you drag it anywhere with negative x-coordinates, and since your secondary screen is on top it's got negative x-coordinates.

Make the top screen the primary one.

NO! I can't do that... The program simply needs to be allowed to go into negatives... thats all :P
Besides, I would get a really cramped neck if I made the top one primary :P
