It only ads some "being there" by adding info to your peripheral vision*. In rFactor (and other racing sims like Assetto Corsa and iRacing) you can tweak your Field of View with many parameters like viewing distance, viewing angles, monitor sizes and monitor angles, etc. to get the perspective correct**... In those racing games you definitely use your side monitors for looking into the corners...
I dont think the big difference is between racing and flying sims. In both cases you want to look in to the corner, or look before you make the turn. I think the big difference is that those race sims support multi projection, where as DCS (and condor) do not. Or maybe DCS does, if this post is to be believed, but I cant find much on it:https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=108162&page=2
And in the picture you show the monitors are incorrectly setup in Eyefinity (or the Nvida version of it). You have to ad the "virtual pixels" of the monitor bezels. Then the lines of the cockpit frame will look correct. This is very easy to visually setup with Eyefinity.
Sure, AMD cards do bezel compensation fine (as do nvidia cards), but I do not find that all that important, especially not a with sim like condor. The real problem is the perspective correction, and avoiding endless stretching on the outer screens. For that, you need the sim to render 3 camera views, one for each monitor. Im hoping Condor V2 will support this. Rendering 3 views can take a hit on your FPS, but the latest nVidia cards support this in hardware at virtually no cost. It doesnt look like AMD supports this yet, but that just means a FPS hit, not that it wont work.
OTOH AMD's eyefinty supports multi monitor with different resolution (my center monitor is 2560 wide), and that is something that nVidia does not properly support yet. Im actually thinking of rotating my center screen in portrait mode makes more sense for flight sims. That is something I could set up with eyefinty (AMD), but not with nVidia. And not with condor V1 anyhow because of dgvoodoo (which I use to enable high resolutions in condor V1
) working with my previous nVidia drivers, and intel IGP, but not with my recent AMD card.
So, with AMD cards I can not run at higher than 1920 resolution, or use dgvoodoo and get red color corruption. With nVidia dgvoodoo worked fine, but I can only configure 1 monitor or get a stretched center monitor because it assumes 3 identical monitors. So right now, I have a powerful AMD card and three monitors, but I play condor using integrated graphics on just one. Frustrating
