Hi Nigel,

If the game is running in Windowed Mode or Borderless Window, you can create a trigger to move the application to your specified monitor when the application is launched. I'll attach our help guide on working with triggers down below.

Hope that helps!

Hello,

Thanks for sending that over. Can you try unchecking the "Process Filename" box, and the "Window Class" box, so just the "Window Text" box is enabled, and see if that works? (Sorry my dutch is a bit rusty ).

Let me know how that works!

Hi Triskelen. If the game's video settings allow you to run the game in a window, choose to do so, and then drag the game window to the monitor you want to play on. You can then return the game to full screen mode if you want. It should always start on the desired monitor from that point on. Hope this helps.

thanks for the reply
if the trigger does not work i set it to windowed and drag the window to the desired screen and set it full screen again. But once the computer has been restarted i have to do the same all over again.
and i did buy the pro version but starting to regret it.

Hello,

That's strange that it breaks after a reboot. Does the trigger not fire at all (you don't get a notification either), or is it just the window movement that's not working after a reboot?

Thanks!

Hello,

Can you try to change the trigger to fire off a different application, for example a chrome window, and see if the issue persists after a reboot?

Thanks!

Hello,

Strange! Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue (Capture the trigger working, restart, and then capture the trigger not firing) and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks!

Hello,

Can you try re-creating that trigger with the new update? If that works, can you then try restarting DisplayFusion, waiting about 5 minutes, and then starting your game and see if it fires?

Let me know how that works!

Hello,

That's really strange, I'll attach a link at the bottom of this post that you can use to roll back to 9.7.1. Can you let me know if the trigger starts working again after rolling back?

Thanks!

Hello,

Glad to hear! Is the same issue happening on the new version with the trigger not firing after a reboot? Does the issue still happen after waiting about 5 minutes before launching your game?

Thanks!

Hello,

Interesting, so just to confirm, the trigger is working continuously after rebooting?

Thanks!

Hello,

Could you send me a backup of your DisplayFusion settings so I can test it out on my end? You can grab them in the DisplayFusion Settings window, in the "Options" tab using the "Export Settings" button.

Thanks!
