    How to record triple monitors, with nvidia shadowplay?

    @LordBenji Sadly changing the game to windowed, or windowed borderless, or anything else than fullscreen, it just completely breaks. Surround is always a bit....ehm...messy. But I am just going to ask it on the SCS forum, maybe someone there knows if it is even solvable at all. ETS2 doesn't really support triple monitor setups very well at all, so it is all a bit experimental, in my experience atleast. Thank you all for your help, I am just going to mess around with the settings a bit, and if I don't figure it out, then maybe someone on the SCS forum knows it.

    How to record triple monitors, with nvidia shadowplay?

    Well the weird thing is, nvidia shadowplay is technically running/working.........in a way When I launch the game, alt-tab and hit alt+z for the shadowplay menu, it just pops op and works. But when I go back ingame, and use alt+z, I lose control of my mouse ingame(which would be normal when you launch shadowplay) but the shadowplay menu doesn't show up. It looks like ets2 is just always infront of the shadowplay menu, which makes it why I can't use the thing. And, when I do these steps without nvidia surround, and just launch the game in normal 1920x1080, it works fine, no problems at all. But as soon as as I use nvidia surround, it breaks....when using it with ETS2. I don't have any of these problems with other games btw, for example, Forza Horizon 3 works with surround and shadowplay no problem. So....not really sure what is going on, but well, thank you guys for your responses
  3. Hello, I have been searching the forum alot about this topic, but haven't found a solution yet. I have three monitors, with nvidia surround enabled. And normally, when using nvidia surround, I can use nvidia shadowplay to record the monitors. Very easy, it just records at 5760x1080 resolution. And i can just edit it to 1920x1080 so I can watch it at a normal aspect ratio. But, the weird problem is, when I play ETS2 (doesn't matter if I launch singleplayer or multiplayer). It just refuses to open the nvidia shadowplay panel( I think the default key combination for it is alt + Z). I have reinstalled everything at this point, and it seems to be only happening to ETS2. So yeah I was just wondering if anyone knows a solution to this, if not, then I will try the SCS forum. It is a weird little bug, but it makes recording for me impossible, which is....annoying. Thank you, happy_trucking_ets2

  6. For anyone who has been wondering where the yellow truck with the massive train on d-c road went:


    I have been very sick for almost 2 months now, so I am not online alot at the moment.

    My hope is that I will recover in a few weeks, but there is not really a way to know how long this will last.


    Thank you for reading my post :)

    Truck Sounds

    Hello, Are you allowed to change to engine sound of your truck? For example, you drive a volvo truck, but you don't like the engine sound. But you do like the scania engine sound. Are you allowed to swap the engine sound from the scania into the volvo? And what will other people hear? Thank you, happy_trucking_ets2

    Common sense gets you really far, but this message is spreading around steam like mad, and the best thing to do now is damage control. I hope we can stop it, before it gets out of control.

    1 free game for new users! take the game you want!

    Hello, I got this message from someone in my friends lists yesterday (it also has a link, but for obvious reasons I am not going to include it at this moment). It sends that, and a link, and when you click the link, login with steam, your passwords resets almost instantly. It is a pain in the butt to go through steam support to fix it, and I just want to warn everyone, that has seen this message. As far as I could see, the message auto-sends to EVERYONE in your friends lists, after you clicked the link. That is why this is so destructive. Me and a friend of mine are in the process of reporting the website in question. This post, is to hopefully control the damage...somewhat, please share this information with anyone you know that has steam! Thank you, happy_trucking_ets2
  11. You don't see this alot: 



    The only day I saw something similar to that is this, the day ETS2MP needed a full restart:

    But it seems like they are still 61 troopers online, in the server, good luck guys! :D

      It's because the people that don't have ETS2 on automatic update off can play, it's very hard to downgrade it.

    Lag spikes in ETS2MP

    Thank you all for your help, and I have found the problem. It was ONE specific setting for me that I didn't even think about. As you can see in the screenshot, it is the headlights option. I disabled it, restarted my game, went to drive around for a bit, and everything is smooth again. So as far a as my theory for it goes: My pc is good, but loading in trucks, and especially the lighting for those trucks causes the lag spikes. I will mess around with the settings the coming few days, but it seems that the problem is solved for now atleast. Again thank you all for your help! Happy Trucking!

    Lag spikes in ETS2MP

    Hello, I have some weird lag spike problems in ets2mp, and I am trying to figure out what precisely is causing the problem. If I go back about 3-4 months ago this problem didn't exist, and I don't really understand what is going on. One thing I do know, is that the lag occurs mostly when entering an area with players (so when the game tries to load the trucks/trailers etc). Lowering the draw distance, and lowering the smoothing distance makes it only worse. My draw distance is normally maxed and it seems like the ingame draw distance limit is 489(when opening the config.txt file in the documents\ETS2MP). Lowering the graphics (even to something stupid like 800x600 with low graphics) doesn't change anything either. PC temperatures are fine, tried multiple graphics drivers, and nothing seems to change or help in any way. My pc specs are: I7 7700K GTX1080 32gb ram 500 gb samsung 960 euo nvme ssd So my specs shouldn't be a problem, as far as I know. And the game runs normally at about 60-120 fps, it really depends on how many people are in the area. The only thing that I can think of that *might* help, is if I can change the draw distance to something like 4x the amount. That way the game would load most of the traffic in the area at once. And hopefully makes the lag spikes a bit less. But as far as I know that is not something I can change in the settings. Thank you for reading, and I hope someone has a suggestion, or an idea about what is going on. Happy Trucking ETS2
