So I have looked though numerous forums and could not find an answer to this. Does anyone know if there will even be a remote possibility to play using the Triplehead2go / 3 Screens such as ATI's Eyefinity? I tried this will XI and well the results were less then stellar. However the big competition (WoW) lets you do this out of the box. Would really like to see FFXIV across 3 screens for the next 5-8 yrs....

3840 x 800 (3 x 1280 x 800) 60Hz
3840 x 960 (3 x 1280 x 960) 60Hz
3840 x 1024 (3 x 1280 x 1024) 60Hz
4080 x 768 (3 x 1360 x 768) 60Hz
4098 x 768 (3 x 1366 x 768)3 60Hz
4320 x 900 (3 x 1440 x 900)3 60Hz
5040 x 1050 (3 x 1680 x 1050)3 57Hz

As seen here:

I did some poking around to see what I could find about Eyefinity. I could be off, but from what I understand there isn't really anything special the developer has to do to allow for Eyefinity. The graphics drivers tell the OS what resolutions are supported and the game should ideally let you select from anything on the list. I've got a card that supports Eyefinity but the two monitors I have are different sizes (and native resolutions) and neither of them uses a DVI connector so I haven't really looked too closely into it/had a chance to test. I think the reason FFXI didn't support Eyefinity was because it had its own specific locks on the resolutions it supported regardless of what your monitor/GPU might allow.

Yeah I had asked support about it and they basically had said the same thing in XI was the resolutions / aspect ratios were part of the game and would require changing too much game code to accommodate minimal users. /sigh I have a triplehead2go system and even tried on their forums to see if anyone could even mod it though memory hacking. I could get the game to run but the "fisheye" or stretch whatever you want to call it made it un playable..... but I will say its cool as **** running though the top of aht urgan and be able to see everything going on on the lower level.
