Here's an early WIP of the horizontal monitor. Tell me what you think :). I'm going to add buildings on the horizon and the NG tank in the corner.

If you MUST know it's cause a vertical monitor is tremendously better for reading long columns of text than a horizontal one. Code is usually in the form of long columns of text. I need a horizontal one too for normal stuff.

can you explain how you are actually applying the image? i have the same set up with one horizontal and one vertical. since i rotated the vertical one the image just sits in the middle and won't fill top to bottom. so would these be two different images? how do you get the image to stretch over both? mine just duplicates the picture on each monitor.

I had to download a program that makes multi-monitor behave better (and stretch the start menu across both of them) with a lot of options for how to do the background images, hence 2 images OR one large image will work for me.

What do you need for a two monitor setup?

I've been working on something, but I might not be able to get it in by the 9th. Could I post it after then?

This is my current work in progress, it looks pixelated because Newgrounds doesn't support .pngs
Tell me what you think.

Never had I said in my posts that it was My work, but I should create my own work. And at least my post was not a joke submission.
