Flight Sim X Multi Monitor Tutorial Video (Up to 8 Monitors!!)

, , 15 Comments


I’m going to be showing you how to run Microsoft Flight Simulator X on multiple monitors. You’re going to need Microsoft Flight Simulator. This can be purchased from Steam or in disc form. You’re going to want monitors. We’re using 7 24″ monitors and 1 28″ monitor for the overhead panel. If you do have an odd size monitors, I recommend using the biggest monitor for your main Flight Simulator screen. You want 2 or more graphics cards. We’ve got two NVIDIA 980Ti’s in our machine which are both running 4 monitors per graphics card. A joystick is an optional feature. It makes it a lot easier to play Flight Simulator games. To install the game you need to go to Steams website, download Steam and then install the game. Depending on the monitors you have, you may need to get some converters for the cables. Most monitors come with VGA/DVI ports, and then the bigger monitors come with HDMI and Display Ports. Right click on desktop, and click on Display. All monitors will show up, they may not be in the right order however, but this is something you will have to do manually. We need to open Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Go to settings>customise>then make sure your resolution is the resolution of your monitors. If you’re on Windows 10, click Preview Direct X 10

    How do you save the layout between sessions? Everytime the sim resets from a crash everything disappears and resets to a single monitor.

    Do you need to connect each monitor to the graphics cards? Can you not somehow use a DisplayLink and connect that to the graphics card ??

    To properly sync multiple displays and concatenate them to form a single virtual desktop you'll need professional grade Nvidia Quadro or AMD pro workstation GPUs. For two or more GPUs you'll also need a separate sync card to hook them together.
