I got a new monitor since the last time I played WiF and if I maximize the map on the Left Monitor and have the forms on the Right monitor, the game randomly locks up after just a few minutes and has to be killed from task manager. If I leave the map window less than full screen I have no problems. My monitor setup is below.

Some additional information:

When I am using the Left monitor to display the maximized map window, the game locks up. If I configure the map window on the Left monitor as shown below, the game runs fine (the map in the image is 3840x1954, leaving a 207 pixel band above the map). I have tried checking and unchecking "Only use primary monitor" on the Player Interface Settings window to no effect.

I have tried game versions v3.00.01.00, v3.00.02.00, v4.02.00.00Beta, and hotfix v4.03.00.00 and all the versions locked up when the map window was maximized on the Left monitor.

In the past, I used the Right monitor in the Left hand spot as my primary monitor (Upgraded my main monitor, demoted my old primary monitor to secondary and my son got my old secondary monitor). I experienced no problems with that setup (Left monitor 2560x1600, Right monitor 2560x1440) with a maximized map on the Left screen (again 2560x1600).

My guess is the lockup issue has something to do with the increase in vertical and/or horizontal resolution on the 3840x2160 monitor.

I think the problem is the position of the Command form. When playing on one monitor, it should not be in a corner position. Try moving it to the right, so that pop-up screens can appear on the left of the command form.

The screenshot in the second post is what works. The Description in the first post (maximized map on Left monitor, forms on Right monitor) is the one that locks up.

I didn't post a screenshot of the maximized map on the Left monitor as that would not be very informative.

To be perfectly clear, the screenshot below shows the configuration when the game does lock up. The screenshot in the second post of this thread shows the configuration when the game doesn't lock up.

I've found that putting the main form (i.e. the one with the command menus not the detailed map) on the secondary monitor is a recipe for disaster. You've got a nice big monitor on the left, so putting the main form at the upper left (not in the left corner - leave room for the air missions window) would not cost you a lot.

Or if you are like me and pretty anal about totally maximizing the detailed map, then swap the two, but that's easy for me to say because my monitors are the same size.
