How to control which monitor game starts up in? - In-game fix found.

Post by pepperg » Sat, 20. Aug 16, 05:17

I have two monitors, one as my primary monitor and one as my secondary. XRebirth is the only game that launches in my secondary monitor.

Any suggestions on how I can set the game to launch in my primary monitor?

I've tried dragging the game in windowed mode over to my primary monitor, but it snaps back to the 2nd monitor. Annoying.

Thanks.

Just a hope (depending on OS naturally) that perhaps in Windows Settings, Advanced Display Options, you may be able to tie in an application exe to a specific display device.

Also you could perhaps investigate if there are any command line parameters that might set the display on running the exe, or perhaps use an external program similar to those mentioned in this old X2 thread.

Thanks. It turns out the solution is much simpler:

Within the game settings menu: settings > graphic settings>display adapter - then double click on the monitor option, <name of video card> (#1)

The game had assigned itself to video card #2
