A few members over at the SoftTH Forums figured out how to get SoftTH v.108b properly working with TF2. Seems the magic sauce was to put the relevant files in these locations: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\XXUSERNAMEXX\team fortress 2\ SoftTH.cfg SoftTH_hook.dll C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\XXUSERNAMEXX\team fortress 2\bin\ d3d8.dll d3d9.dll Click Here to watch in HD!

Running Crysis with SoftTH was a piece of cake. No special configuration, just past the files to the root of Crysis, set the resolution and go. While tweaking the setting I found one nVidia 8800GTS can run fairly smooth at medium quality and 1024×3840 resolution. I purposefully did not focus on scripted scenes to minimize […]

Happy Halloween to all our U.S. readers!

  You have to love a site dedicated to Multi-Monitor WallPapers.  And dualscreenwallpaper.com is just that site.  The supply of wallpapers is not limitless, but its a good start for anyone who wants Diviant-quality artwork spanning both of your screens. Happy Independence Day!

While searching for better software for assisting Multi-Monitor setups without packing a dozen video cards into one PC I came across MaxiVista. Although similar its not free like Synergy. But for thirty bucks it looks like you get a lot fore features. They tout it is designed to use any laptop as a monitor, but […]

Part 1 – Basic Usage I took some time out of my busy schedule to take the latest version of Synergy for a spin and I was pleasantly surprised that free software could get this good, but it is still not perfect.
