Greetings mainsworthy,
For my 69 year old eyes (legally blind in one) your multiple monitors give a nice display for those Matrixgame titles shown.
I play the same titles on a 15.6" laptop so quite a difference.
Thanks for posting.

Sorry but why not buy directly a 49'' monitor? Such as this one.

The second game looks like Steel Panthers WW2 or MBT (not the Matrix version SPWaW).

I Don't NEED that AT ALL. I put the computer on my chest and kick back while sitting on a recliner. Those monitors would be a little hard to do that with. They would also be hard to move when a pretty female wants to lay on my chest and have me rub her . . .

Yes,it has that SP vibe going, but certainly not as I remember / know it.
Doesn’t look like the demo I played from Shrapnel either, but maybe that’s the resolution in combination with the screen photo.

Show off

My table isn't big enough for 3 monitors. Unless I push my desktop machine and printer off to the floor, then maybe? More likely I would just buy a bigger monitor with higher resolution. But I'm not in a hurry with it. Right now I have a HD monitor and an old LCD TV (max resolution 1366*768), and I make occasional use of the TV as a dedicated display for videos and Discord.

Unfortunately no one makes a game, wargame or any other genre (for my gaming tastes) that is good enough to dedicate that much room and effort. Plus in my old age I can't sit behind a computer desk all day like I used to.

its SPMBT, Its set to use desktop res(its the paid version that allows desktopres, and the screenshot is not zoomed out), so it fills the entire 3 monitors as the destop res is 6000x1080, brilliant eh!


Looks better than the free version for sure, but I just can’t bring myself to pay the price Shrapnel is asking for a game I played decades ago (yes, they clearly upped the standard, but still...)

But yes, it looks very good - however this temptation I can withstand.

As for OT triples - yes great for sims, especially racing, might exchange my VR for triples - although I prefer the immersion of VR. OTOH for strategy games I have noticed that I prefer not going too wide.

To each his own, enjoy!
