Custom resolution for GTA V??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay so I just finished moving into my new house and setting up my new rig. The new setup has three 1080p monitors two landscape and the portrait one is in the middle (it suits the location best because I have a corner table with not much space.) So I've played a couple of games so far like Dirt 4, ARK and BeamNG Drive. These games work fine because in windowed mode I can just drag the window across all three screens so I get a pretty immersive experience. But GTA doesn't allow you to do this and I've been trying to find a solution but with no success. I've tried editing the commandline.txt file and the settings.xml file but they make no difference. Every time GTA just starts on my main monitor at 1080p. Can someone help me get a 4920*1080 resolution?

Thanks in advance :)

I bet it's not possible. As an off topic question, what's your favorite car in BeamNG.drive, stock or modded? I love the 200BX and the Barstow, along with the K series.

Haha its gotta be the Sunburst or the Prasu! They're so fun to drive especially with a couple of mods.

Based off a Supra, I think :P 

 

 

Back to the topic at hand: I'd assume that you can't do it because it might be against the rules and therefore be a bannable offense.

Yeah it is.

I'm not sure if its against the rules because gta does have multi monitor support just not in my weird config,

Hmm...I'm not sure then. I've never used multiple monitors, so I'm not familiar with this stuff. Have you tried changing the aspect ratio in settings?

yeah but the only available ones are conventional ratios... I'd need 9:41 :/ I don't think that's normal lol
