How can I make Unravel use the monitor I want (on a multi-monitor system)?

★ Newbie

Using 3 monitors here.

 

Unravel always tries to start on monitor #1 (as identified by Windows (10, creator update installed)).

 

No matter if I start the origin shell on any other monitor (I got 3).

 

 

I'd like to be able to start Unravel on another one.

 

How can this be achieved?

 

 

(For some reasons I cannot easily influence my monitor #1 is located at a place where it is not convenient to use for gameplay.

Reassignment of monitor numbers through Windows is also not really feasible.

Therefore I'd need a way to convince Unravel to swap monitors.)

 

Thank you for answering.

@ashika2 Unfortunately I don't think there is. The config file for the game isn't really adjustable like in other games, so you can't really pop in and tweak that. 

You mention it in passing, but I think changing assigned monitors in Windows is the easiest workaround. 


Sorry that I don't have a fix here, I'd love to know if you can devise a better Solution.

Quick tip, use this hotkey: Windows Key + Shift Key + Left/Right Arrow

You should be able to move the program to the monitor you like Standard smile
