    As some of you know widescreen players have a larger field of view than the squarescreen players. Also you can set a custom resolution for tf2.
    behold extreme widescreen, allowing a fov not intended.

    it was played at a resulation of 1366:320 or about 4:1 and couldnt read a thing.
    I played on 2fort because you normally dont find good players there, allowing you to goof around a bit.

    Can this technique be used to spread across two monitors.

    I have two monitors working on a 3840x1080 res and I run tf2 windowed noborder, yet I cant seem to get it to work.

    Any ideas?

    The hands of the spy look funny in that field of view.
    It doesn't look nice to play like that. I prefer the more square-ish screens.

    I think that won't be solely in-TF2, you'll probably have to mess around with some Windows (or Mac hurr) settings, too.

    did you add "-w 3840 -h 1080" to the launch options?

    On the other hand, it would empower spies. Spy checkin' pyro? Saw that bitch behind me ages ago.

    If you did that, wouldn't it put your crosshairs right in the gutter between the two monitors? Seems like you'd want three monitors for something like this.

    1) Red spawn/ front of the spawn.
    2) Near the stairs that go to the blu intel.
    3) Outside the lower right entrance of the blu base.

    This was supposed to be hard?

    No, he's just oblivious to the fact the image he tried posting isn't loading and so you thought the question was directed at his previous three images.
