Important information regarding using TripleHead2Go with Flight Simulator X: Acceleration

The Matrox TripleHead2Go expands Flight Simulator X across three displays, providing a panoramic view that lets you see more of your virtual cockpit and improves your flight visibility at the same time. This extended view provides a more realistic flight experience by fully engaging your peripheral vision on the side displays.

For the best TripleHead2Go experience in Flight Simulator X: Acceleration, a small Flight Simulator configuration file tweak is necessary. This tweak will allow the field of view to properly adjust to your desired TripleHead2Go resolution.
