Editor Multi-screen support
Hello,
For me the editor v2 runs twice as fast in fullscreen mode.
But it goes to my primary screen, and I can't access the start/apps bar.
Any chance you can put in a screen selection option?

Or does anyone know of a way to make it fullscreen on secondary screen?

RE: Editor Multi-screen support
Does anyone actually use the editor in fullscreen?
It crashes after returning from running the build.
Also, It doesn't release context to the other screen :(

In window mode I'm getting around 20fps.
In fullscreen it's around 140fps!
I have everything turned off.

I don't have nvidia drivers (with all the cool settings), my machine has a cheap intel/dell GPU (with no cool settings).
I installed a few window/taskbar apps but they don't work with the editor.

I can't maximise the editor because it goes into full screen on my primary and it auto rotates??
I can't stretch it out, because it will do as above! :(

Greg, can you please tell me how to maximise your editor?, your editor is making me feel like a single cell organism.
Hope you can help.
Gwald.

PS: the editor is using 1 core from my i5 2.7Ghz running XP pro SP3 32bit 4gigs ram dell, (yes I downgraded from win7 to xp).
Same when it's on the menu window or with nothing rendering.
Nothing when minimised thankfully smile

Is the biggest I can make it,but there's still 1/3 of the screen it can use.

Hi Gwald,

I have a similar problem with steam when playing full screen games. I found a utility called
"Make Primary Monitor" which allows me to map a keyboard shortcut to change my primary monitor. It is kind of a work around but you can switch the primary monitor when working with Esenthel and then easily switch back when you are not.

Hey Ozmodian!
Cool, thanks for the tip, i'll see if I can install it smile
It turns out the high CPU usage is due to all the tuts file (which is fair enough), it's fine in a project (with less files/objs etc).

Cheers smile

Hey Ozmodian,
I installed it, but it must require a newer version of .net so no luck.
I think it's the dell video card struggling with two monitors.
I get 100fps on my laptop.

Anyway, good feature to have in the editor and engine
