Gratuitous Space Battles 2 in multi-monitor mode!

At last a shaky-cam (well not shaky, but you know what I mean) video of GSB 2! I wanted to do this to show off multiple monitor mode with a lemon for scale. The video shows my dev PC with the game running. My PC is a i7 3770 quad-core 8gig RAM, windows 7 and a GeForce GTX670 video card, powering two 27″ monitors for a total GSB2 fun ratio of 5120×1440, or other 7 million pixels of lasers and explosions. Here is the video:

I’ll be doing more videos over the next few months to keep you all updated, plus other things are in the pipeline :D. In future I’ll capture normal in-game footage I just wanted to do a multi-monitor one :D Help me spread the word about 7 million pixels of explosions with ‘likes’ and ‘shares’. I reckon I’ll be more popular than these youtube kids by tomorrow!

BTW the games current website is at (it will get a makeover eventually), I blog about the game here, occasionally tweet about it (@cliffski) and there are forum discussions here.

  1. That puts my 2560 x 1600 to shame :)

    I assume this will also work fine on things like the AMD Eyefinity (3 monitors) setup. I prefer odd number of monitors over even number of monitors. The latter puts the gap precisely at the center of the screen, which drives my OCD a bit crazy :)

  2. It autodetects the largest desktop it can create then makes a borderless window over the whole lot, so technically it’s not fullscreen, meaning flawless alt-tabbing and support for ANY video card with ANY hardware monitor-wise :D

    1. I want to have your babies. If only all game devs were so kind to have alt-tab fullscreen friendliness!
