When I finally got the Onyx runing I found that the MCO had a setup up I haven't seen in the MCO manuals.
It was a 3@800x600 setup, which I think is optimal for three side-by-side screens. This format is not shown in the manualhttp://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... /ch02.html
but obviously it is possible if one just know how to program it.
If I turn it off using
setmon -x 3@800x600_60
so I can use my ordinary single screen. Will it come back using
setmon -S 3@800x600_60
or will I have to use some more advanced setup procedure?
Yes, it will come back, no problem.
I agree that 3 x 800x600 is the smartest res for the MCO as they fit side by side (try Quake for a cool 3 screen gaming, it will automatically widen the field of view)
Yeah it's strange that it isn't mentioned in the tech pubs.
I ended up trying all the res from the vof folder and I also ended up keeping the 3x800x600.
I'm seriously thinking of getting three flat screens and running it like that. But I need to get more table space first.
To make it easier to switch between the MCO and normal output while I am experimenting I created two small scripts one called startMCO and stopMCO that sits on my dekstop
Congrats to getting your Onyx running Björn!
./setmon -S 3@800x600_60
./setmon -x 1280x1024_60
PS Damn cool that we probably got the two last running Onyxes in the country not 25km from each other !
