    Just curious about what will probably get cut out of 1.0, out of the features, anyways.

    Duh, it's unfair to the people who don't have it!
    While we're at it, Uber should lock graphics at low to take away the unfair advantage that higher end users have at enjoying the game. ;)

    And remove all hotkeys except for camera panning, because some of us can't afford keyboards! :p

    ...Your as bad as Caboose from RVB. Multi-Monitor shouldnt effect actual gameplay itself.

    At All.

    Of course it affects gameplay, or rather, it doesn't affect gameplay as much but actually affects the player's ability to play the game.

    And you don't think that's an improvement in situational awareness?

    We've not confirmed either of these as 1.0 features. They're being created / investigated on their own timelines.

    So, as a typical Brad response, is that a "yes, they might show up," or "No, they wont show up?" :)

    I for one would like to multi monitor support, it seems to me that this particular game is so suited for it. As to the cost isue, most video card have had multiple monitor outputs for many years so all your looking at is the cost of a cheap second hand monitor. These can be picked up for less than the cost of the game itself if you shop around a bit.

    To sum up, Hell yes bring it on.

    That's a we don't know when they'll come, but we're totally looking / have looked into it. Wish I could give you more.

    Logically, (by my logic at least), the only way he can definitively say 'yes' is if the feature is pretty much complete, or at least in good working order. If it is complete it would likely be in the PTE already, and if its in there you likely wouldn't need to ask the question. Its an unfulfilling answer, but somewhat inevitable considering.

    Anyhow, here's hoping for multiple pips or simply an enlargeable pip covering half the screen. I play on a projector so potential for many large pips.

    Well, keep us updated, there are no games that really utilize multiple monitors(without something like Surround or Eyefinity.) :)
