    Default DMD Position/Resizing in Cabinet Mode FX3

    I'm having trouble configuring the DMD display on my 3 monitor cabinet setup. I'm running Pinball FX3 in Cabinet Mode. I cannot resize or move the DMD. No matter what numbers I put into Horizontal or Vertical the DMD does not move. I also cannot resize the display no matter what numbers I put in the size stays the same. What am I doing wrong?

    1. In the normal settings under UI/Streaming, turn off the onscreen DMD

    2. In the cabinet settings, make sure you have DMD repositioning turned On

    3. Set the size of the DMD (depends on the width of your DMD display, but you can just start with 800x200)
    Dot matrix horizontal size: 800
    Dot matrix vertical size: 200

    4. Determine the correct position, how are your monitors configured in Windows Display Settings, ie: are the stacked or beside each other?
    If they are beside each other and you wanted your DMD on the screen #3 as seen in the image (and playfield is screen #1):

    then your Horizontal position would be the width of your playfield monitor (1080 or 1920 , etc)
    Vertical position is 0

    If your screens are stacked and your DMD (#3) is above your playfield (#1) in windows display settings:

    then your DMD Vertical Position would be a negative number which is equal to the height of your DMD display (ie: -1024, -900, etc)
    Horizontal position is 0

    Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate it. I'm having the worst time getting my cabinet up and running with various software. Hopefully your instructions work. I still have to get Virtual Pinball X, Future Pinball, and PinballX running. Everything is so convoluted. I'll try your advice when I get home today. Thank you so much again.
