Fullscreen on monitor #2
« on: July 07, 2018, 09:29:50 am »

Ok, This has to be on here somewhere, but neither wiki nor google nor forum search revealed the answer to me - How do I get DF running on my second monitor. Every time I go to fullscreen, it switches back to my first monitor, which I'm using to do other things. Any clue, any pointers on where my googlefu has failed me?

I agree with Urist. Steampunk is like Darth Vader winning Holland's Next Top Model. It would be awesome but not something I'd like in this game.

Dunno if you already figured it out, but, here's what I do?

I have 3 monitors.  I just run DF in windowed and max it on whatever monitor I want.  Easy to drag around.  I've never messed with it in fullscreen.

Same. I use that so much that I forgot that fullscreen is an option.

Fair enough. I was hoping to properly fullscreen on monitor 2, but if this is the way, then this is the way. Last time I played DF I was limping along with only the single screen (savagery, I know).  I like to have DF up on one and then switch between dwarf therapist and my character sheet during RP sessions.
