This guy rather funnily got two statues stuck in the entrance to his capture zone, and nobody could shift them! :?

My tin arrived with one or two minor dents - but I expected that, unless they were making the tins out of wrought iron or something. Still, the OPs tin looks dented beyond reason. I hope the contents weren't damaged! Of course this isn't really IV's fault, so I don't know whether I would ask for an ...

Well, the actual cursor isn't displayed, I think I'd be able to get used to that. The screens I use are right next to each other! Unfortunately while I know my graphics card should support 2560x1024 when I put that into preferences.txt and open the game it always overwrites it with 1280x1024 again. :(

Well a couple of other games work fine in dualscreen, such as Homeworld 2 (although the interface is stretched across the middle), and of course games like Supreme Commander have a native dual screen mode. However if the aspect ratio is locked then I guess there isn't much I can do. And yes, it woul...

Dual-monitor

Unfortunately while I can quite easily drag the Multiwinia window across two monitors, the game itself won't fill up the 2. :( Is this an intentional fixing of the aspect ratio to prevent some kind of advantage, or just an unanticipated bug? I would have thought you'd be able to have different aspec...

I was pretty freaked out when I went on singleplayer and ended up joining someone's game. D: I didn't even realise it was multiplayer until one of the other players talked! Whatever causes that (I'm assuming it just starts a local game server and fills it with CPU players normally) it's a pretty big...

I take offence! :D

Strange, Multiwinia works absolutely perfectly on my multi-monitor setup. Alt-tabbing to a window on the other screen doesn't minimise the game, so I can still see what's going on while I type in IRC, MSN etc. and the mouse stays where it should while I'm ingame.
