UI issues with ultrawide monitor (32:9 3840*1080)
New, NormalPublic


There is no option to select this aspect ratio. I'm using Auto(stretch) which seem to behave like the triple head options. It's generally fine. But in the Eden editor the side panels have annoying positions (see screenshots).
The second minor issue is horizontal black bars during campaign transitions are only displayed in the "middle monitor" instead of extending on the whole screen.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Menu UI
Steps To Reproduce

Play the game with an ultrawide monitor (like Samsung 49)

Hey !

I have the same problem with an Asus XG49VQ. Did you solve this since ?
My screen was fine before with this resolution, but 3 weeks ago the interface changed and i dont know realy why.


Hi guys!

I had the same problem with my samsung C49HG90 32:9 ultrawide monitor.
I´ve encountered this issue when i´ve made a dialog and wanted to test it in lower resolution if it works ok but when i wanted to go back to 3840x1080 my screen rescaled all UI controls for triple monitor settings-just like you have it right now.

The issue seems to be related probably to autostretch which doen´t know 32:9 and some script that runs and modifies all the video setting variables in user profile when you press OK button in video option settings.
First time you run the game on your new monitor it rescales perfectly but if you want to change or even just check your video settings and hit OK then it activates tripleHead and changes all your ingame UI which then focuses in the middle 1/3 of the monitor.

The only solution to this issue is to close the game then open \Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\YourProfileName\YourProfileName.Arma3Profile edit it and search for tripleHead=1; then replace it with tripleHead=0;
Important is to do if AFTER you edit your video settings in game. Otherwise it automaticly changes back to tripleHead=1;

I would be glad to have option in video settings for 32:9 because i can´t make any video settings changes now.
I hope it helps.
