    Lightbulb MultiBoxing 7 Drake/Raven/Carrier PvE Characters....?

    Know that I am an IS Boxer for many years, mostly in WoW, but for over the past year only in EvE Online...

    After watching Ughmahedhurtz video "5x Drake fleet vs Enemies Abound 5/5" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFBfmk2yS2c), I have been digging deep into Video FX, dxNothing, and trying all sorts of configurations in order to create the same setup. My ideal is to use all 7 of my Drakes, Ravens or Carriers in the same fleet. In order to get that many ships up seems to require a max of 4 ship Video FX feeds on the second & third monitor. With 5 ships, I can run on 2 monitors, but with 7 - 9 ships I will need three monitors. Glad I have them.

    I have tried every combo of stacked and unstacked with and without swapping. Having the main in the middle and three accounts on each of the left and right monitors. All with limited success. No matter what I do or how I set things up, the Video FX will at some point either not allow me to create a video source for the next character, or it will allow me to create it/them, but will not list them to be placed withing my two dxNothing windows.

    My current system is a Win 7 64 bit i7 965 Quad Core with 24 GB of RAM, dual Nvidia GTS450 1GB video cards and 3 monitors.

    Currently I am looking for anyone to point me in the right direction with a proper windows layout so I can configure Video FX to properly display characters 2-7 using the system I currently have.

    Many thanks to anyone and everyone who offers their thoughts.

    Try grabbing my setup here: http://privatepaste.com/90a9760abb

    Then pull my VideoFX layout files that match that setup here: http://www.l00py.net/ugh_merks-eve_VideoFXfiles.zip Extract those into C:\Program Files (x86)\InnerSpace\Scripts or wherever you have your IS installed.

    Then load up that profile and see if it even works. If it does work where yours does not, it might give you some insight into where yours is configured wrong (and I'm just assuming yours isn't set up right). You will probably have to edit the game it launches and possibly monitor sizes if it'll even work.

    One additional note: I've never used more than one dxNothing window, though I'm not aware of any reason why it wouldn't work.

    I think my EVE accounts are active for a few more weeks. You're welcome to post your config and I can see if I see anything obviously fubar. I just wish you could export all the toolbars and videoFX and such with the profile.

    Wow! +Faint+ I think I need a smoke and a warm towel! LOL many thanks. Your video has inspired me to become more that I have been for the past year.

    Got all the files installed.. creating the character sets with your config.

    No guarantees it'll work but hopefully you'll get something useful in there somewhere.
