Running Diablo 3 in Eyefinity will greatly enhance your gaming experience. For those not aware of Eyefinty, it is an AMD technology for running games (or your desktop) on multiple monitors simultaneously. As you can imagine, this will allow you to achieve a very large resolution.
For those who already have multiple monitors, or are about to build a multi monitor setup, you should be pleased to know that Diablo 3 can run in Eyefinity. While it is not official supported, there is an easy way to get it to work. Here is what you need to do:
- Put your video card/s into Eyefinity mode
- Start Diablo 3
- Click Options
- Click Video
- Now change Display to Fullscreen Windowed
After setting this, Diablo 3 will automatically detect your maximum desktop resolution and stretch to that, filling all your monitors. Note that since Diablo 3 does not support this, there are some bugs.
The first bug you will encounter is at the login screen, where the edges turn black and the menus move to the edges:
This is probably caused by the fact that since Diablo 3 does not support Eyefinity, they didn't bother creating a login screen this big. You can see it cuts off at a certain point and then goes black. That point is where the maximum supported resolution can see.
In terms of the actual game, it renders fine and fills all the monitors with the map but monsters will only be visible up to a certain point. If you where looking to get an unfair advantage by using a bigger view distance, that won't happen. Here is what it looks like:
Now the big question is whether Blizzard will roll out a patch that officially supports Eyefinity, or roll out a patch to stop this trick from working.
Here are some videos of Diablo 3 Eyefinity (notice the view distance I mentioned above):
