End of next week is the latest eta.
I'm waiting on an order from elsewhere and the last info I heard about a week ago is that there's some stock due into Philip UK on the 16th Feb, so just after the weekend hopefully.
Hi guys, has anyone of you tried Arma 3 with the custom 21:9 res (i.e.3840x1634)? For some strange reason I get dark semicircle shaped areas at the left and right side, it is like looking trough binoculars. All other games work great in 21:9. has anyone else noticed that issue with Arma 3?
Thanks in advance
Same here, this'll be my 2nd BDM4065UC
Still waiting for my first
You going to use 2 on the same desk!?
I placed my order back on December 11th, but it seems OcUK managed to nab a lot of their own stock direct as they've had deliveries since. If I'd have realised I might have paid a bit more to get it from OcUK instead.
Oh well, nearly there now and the other company kindly lent me a 28" 4K monitor to tide me over until the Philips arrives
Mines coming Monday
Just tried the Camp Maxwell mission from the campaign and had no such issues. 3840 x 1634 resolution.
GTX980 drivers 347.09
Now there's an idea ! No, one for the office office and one for the home office.
Yep they revised mine to Monday and it has dispatched
Source ? OC or rainforest ?
Best video cable for this monitor?
Assuming displayport 1.2 is the best cable for this monitor. Although have read about 1.3 (and beyond).
Am assuming something like this would do the job?
Thanks for testing. Strange. I will try a reinstall of the game.
There you go...... coming in 16th. Based on a call to a different supplier, RRP and monitoring prices.
There is no such thing as a DP 1.2 cable, or a DP 1.3 cable or anything else of that sort. The port revisions can change, but you needn't worry about the cable as long is it's of decent quality. And that one you linked to looks to be a good solid cable.
I should stress that my Arma3 install is stock. If you have mods installed they could be the culprit.
Thanks a lot for that hint. The reason for the issue was Sweet FX. Now it´s working perfectly. Thanks again
Hi guys, I've got a question for those who use the monitor with a 21:9 custom resolution: What is the recommended resolution to adjust? Exact 21:9 ratio would be 3840x1645. Based on existing 21:9 monitors like the 2560x1080 ones and extrapolated, it should be 3840x1620. And then I've read here in the forums, the best res would be 3840x1634, for whatever reason...Hm. I am confused a little bit. What would you say is the recommendable resolution to run the Philips Monitor in 21:9?
Well, I calculated the ratio (perhaps wrongly) which got me to 3840 x 1634.
But I also use 3840x1280 (3:1) for certain games sometimes.
Really, it doesn't need to be an exact figure - create whatever you like
Ah, thank you. Good to know
i currently have 3 of these monitors but not because i bought 3
2 of them are warranty replacements but they were all delivered with marks laminated into the screen.
because philips have replaced it twice they wont do it a third time i just have to return all 3 and get refunded for the original purchase.
i really dont want to go back to my dell 3011 so is there any alternatives due to be released anytime soon?
