just gonna say you wont be able to play on 2 monitors the gunsight will be in the middle, i tried it and it sucks.  you need to play on 3 or 1.

Not necessarily if one is 16/9 and the other is 4/3.

Thanks, I found that out, so annoying. I thought because 1 monitor was wider the sights would be 1/3 in on that but no.. right on the join..unplayable.
I might look out for another small one and have 3, 2 small windows eitherside of the big one...people get rid of old monitors quite a bit now so might be worth it for shiz & gigglez..
cheers tho

Thanks for that information, JimmyC. I thought similarly but now I stand corrected. I still can't understand why since the centre point should be right in the middle of any screen, combined or not.

when I used to play with 3 monitors it was cool, I could see wingtip to wingtip. but my monitors were the same size but different manufacturers so I used magazines to prop them up to the highest of the three.  I ended up giving away all 3 and bought a 29 screen monitor, think that's the size, anyway, paid almost 800 bucks for it.  somebody posted on the pig's website about a 32 in monitor selling for about 250.  now that is a steal.
