Aussie> Hi there, thanks for the reminder, as you might have noticed we discussed these kind of surround projection techniques many years ago. The famous 360° panoramatic-quake tweak was released with code like a decade ago, the more advanced dome projection image related technigues developed by australian researcher Bourke, were also discussed. Despite almost all info available (including maths/code) this approach has been ignored by both users/developers for years, how sad when this is clearly the most valuable sim add on feature since the advance of networking technology! We hoped this surround projection could develop into opensource project, but almost nobody was interested. Now, it's working at least as payware from your above mentioned sources and it rocks on major sims like FSX, Rfactor. Moreover, the ATI Eyefinity (sw triplehead capability) is now available even on cheaper cards ala HD5670/5770 with no additional charge, LCD panel prices are low enough so hopefully people will get interested in these kind of desktop setups - without paying Matrox for their Triplehead standalone box, and consequently demand more - the real thing, i.e. projector based system with software warping for dome/half-sphere/simple cylindrical-curved screens be it only used with one projector.
Specifically speaking about Condor, the issue here is that this is DX7 game engine, and this image warp/wraping technology is obviously geared towards younger revisions DX9 (10/11) for contemporary and future sim titles. I gather you also contacted Nthusim devs over their forums as to whether they will look into DX7 support for Condor. From their angle this is obviously not very perspective venue, as there are very few popular DX7 titles around these days for the extra work. Also, there is the issue of max resolution for DX7, which is roughly 2048 wide, if I'm not mistaken, so perhaps not very suitable for 3x projectors, but more like "dual head" suitable setups, e.g. 2x (1024x576) = widescreen 2048x576 for cylindrical image wrap, fits small rooms too, lol..
Possibly the only other DX7 title worth mentioning and still in progress project is the great EECH simulator: http://www.eechcentral.com/wiki/index.p ... =Main_Page

However, in any case, I'd suggest we can at least try lobby over there for our DX7 support cause based on showing up some top tweaks packages like CZ/SK/FR-Provence2 HD sceneries, HD clouds, LK8000 flight nav, FCIS gauges, simpits etc, plus mentioning EECH. Simply to demonstrate that Condor/DX7 is very much "alive platform" with int. fan base still working hard on cool stuff and it deserves surround projection support..
