I have two monitors setup, Myst plays on the smaller one to my right. Instead of the bigger one right infront of me. No other game does this.

I have an Ati Radeon 9800 Pro 256mb
Windows Xp Pro

Anyone have any ideas?

Tks!

I get the same thing, basically I just disable the second monitor before playing the game.

I use Ultramon though so it's just a click on the menu.

Just a note, it does say to disable your secondary display in the readme file that comes with the game, in case you haven't checked it yet. I've been doing it and the game runs fine (of course).

Still seems silly though. Why doesn't it start on the primary monitor like every other program?

Not sure why it'd work this way unless at one point you put the Myst window on the secondary monitor. I know that any windows that I move to the secondary will always open on the secondary until I move them back. Does manually moving Myst onto the primary keep it on the primary for future openings or does it switch back to the secondary?

There are various glitches with using multi-displays which aren't necessarily program related (so I read in NVidia's driver release notes, for instance). Does the problem persist if you change your default display resolutions or settings? What happens if you switch the primary/secondary ordering of the monitors? Does the game switch to stay with the 'secondary' or does it stay on the same monitor regardless of whether it's primary or secondary?
