    I've read a few times, of players playing UO over several Monitors.

    Since it is my understanding that multi-monitors game play needs to be supported by the game, being UO quite an old game, I wonder, does it support multi-monitors game play ?

    If not, how can one set it up so as to be playing UO with more than 1 monitor ?

    I doubt that it is just about plugging more that one monitor to the back of the video card(s), they would all display the same one image and area, I would guess. The goal is to have monitors display different areas of the game though in close proximity with each other so as to enlarge considerably the viewed area of the game.

    Thanks for the help !

    I have a couple of clients open at the same time and have each one on a separate monitor. I don't think its possible to have one client open and drag various parts onto different screens though if that's what you mean.

    I run a laptop with an extra big monitor attached. I run EC on both screens sometimes but since they are not the same size, it can cause some adjustment errors. Just resize/drag the edge and you'll see. You'll need to adjust things a bunch. For just one classic which is my preferred over EC, I put CC on the one directly in front if me and to the left I put UOAM. I It's rare if I run two UO's for crafting or moving stuff, or rezzing myself in a tough spot, I put one on each screen.

    You'd have to look. I bought an AMD 6970 video card a few years ago and learned of it that way. I don't know if Nvidia offers anything similar.

    As I understand it, multi-clienting (running multiple clients at the same time, toggling back and forth to control them individually) is ok. Multi-boxing (running multiple clients in a way that allows one keyboard/mouse use to control them all simultaneously without toggling back and forth) is illegal.
