I do the same thing. Unless Metal is doing something I'm not familiar with, no, it only displays on one monitor.

That's not bad, but I can't imagine doing the same thing with just two monitors. Everything you'd need to shoot would be right in the middle, you know?

Yuppers, unless you're playing some sort of side-scrollng platformer or RTS. First person shooters wouldn't really benefit at all.

Three screens, though; EXPENSIVE LIKE A MUHFUH. Heh. If I had no limits, sure. But I'm more than happy with my 19" monitor. Its resolution is awful, though.

Yeah I think the only game I've ever played across both screens was Supreme Commander as it was an officially supported feature (you'd get your main HUD/map on one monitor and then another map on the other which you could zoom into as far as you wanted. This way you could have your base always shown on one monitor and whatever else on the other - it was really cool, just a shame I didn't like the game much).

As others have said it doesn't work with shooters because of the inch of plastic right where your cross-hair is.

I really wish more developers would start adding support for a second screen to their games. It'd be so useful to just have a map or inventory permanently displayed on your spare screen.

BTW, Zomboid, I dig the Maiden poster. Definitely one of the more sick Eddies.

I also have a Live After Death one, and I actually prefer it to that one, but it's horizontal and not vertical, so it wouldn't fit there

My entire apartment is decked out in band and video game stuff :D. I also have a pretty badass Boris Vallejo calendar.

Heh I stared putting up posters around my desk area recently, much to the irritation of my girlfriend. She tells me it's making the place look like I teenager's bedroom. I told her to shut her whore mouth. Well no I didn't. I just told her I'd restrict them to the gaming area which seems to have placated her.

I think I'll slowly move them across into the living room over many months so before she knows what's happened the entire flat celebrates all things gaming and metal.

Please excuse the quality of these pics, as they were taken by regular flash photo camera, the kind you'd buy at a drug store. My digital camera went tits up a long tiem ago and I haven't got around to getting a new one.


You can see part of my 42" LG LCD TV, along with the PS3, Xbox 360, dvd player, device switcher thingamajig, my vast cd collection, my book shelf, my stack of vinyls, unopened McFarlane The Trooper Eddie figure (sent to me by Travis Smith, a semi-famous metal cover artist), unopened McFarlane's Twisted Xmas Mrs. Claus figure, 12" Robocop figure and part of my Ran poster.


Close-up of some of the things mentioned above. Also of note are some of the cd's that are visible on the top row, which are various The Gathering singles that Carnivore Is God sold to me about two years back.


The top of my cd shelf thing. Various box sets: Led Zeppelin, Slayer, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath (Ozzy and Dio) and Iced Earth. Also my framed vinyl of A Real Dead One and the uber rare, promo only pic disc of Maiden England.


I did something interesting with this. I took a regular Dark Knight movie poster and cut it in two, putting them in the frames seen in the pic. It looks pretty cool I think. The bottom frame has a Sodom poster (that came with their last album), two Carcass posters (from re-issues of Heartwork and Swansong) and two signed album booklets, one of Nevermore's This Godless Endeavor and the other Deceased's The Blueprints Of Madness.

The only problem is that your shelveslook like they're dying.

The weight of my 1,600+ cd's have taken their toll on the shelves. I might be up past 1,700 now, I haven't counted in a while.

I spy an old tabletop (Coleco) game there. Which one is it, Donkey Kong? Looks like you've got a Gamecube with the added Gameboy Advance base adapter on it? Nice.

What else is on your shelves there, it's hard to make everything out since it's not the largest photo or anything.

Nice setups all around so far everybody. Let's see some more! Speaking of which, I gotta remember to take a photo of mine sometime soon so I can post it up on here. :O

It's a Ms. Pac-Man game, which still work by the way. I found it in a garage sale where I also found a Vectrex in mint condition, but the box was a bit tear. The Game Boy Player was a belated Christmas gift from one of my friend and he knew that I wanted one for years.

Moreover, for the rest, on the top shelves there's my DVD/VHS player, my decoder (I have digital cable) and all my DVDs along with random figurine and family pictures. On the left shelves, there's my stereo. I was annoyed to find out that most of the stereos didn't have a cassette player anymore. Goodbye mix tape! So, I bought one with an iPod jack instead. Then come my NES and my SNES (I'm currently playing Super Metroid). And finally, at the bottom, there are most of my VHS tapes. Now, on the right, there my GameCube, my Jungle Green Edition of the Nintendo 64 and my PS2 slim. Under that, there's all my NES, SNES, GameCube, Nintendo 64 and Playstation games. And on the last shelf, there are my gaming strategy guides, some 45-RPM records and the blue box contains pictures on my family and my childhood. Thatís all!

By the way, did anyone notice the Betamax VCR at the bottom right on the picture? Iíve used it some month ago to watch Flash Gordon.

I know what you mean. I still miss my first NES and its turbo contoller. I always like to use the turbo feature in the underwater levels on Super Mario Bros.
