I have my desktop windows PC with two monitors connected to it, and also an HDMI extender over to my TV. This works great for playing games on my TV, including Artemis. The problem is that if the TV isn't set as my primary monitor, when I start Artemis, even though I drag the window over to the TV, it's listing resolutions compatible with my regular monitor, which tops out at 1680x1050, instead of the 1920x1080 I want on the TV. Even if I choose full-screen window, it goes at 1680x1050, covering only part of the TV screen. So it'd be great if Artemis could list resolutions compatible with all connected monitors, or automatically refreshed the list when the window is moved between monitors.

Second, it would be great if I could choose the audio output device, like you can "choose" which monitor to use. I can connect via Miracast to another TV in the house for another bridge crew, but both instances of Artemis output sound to the default sound card (either one TV or the other, depending on which I've chosen). The resolution switcher window should have a dropdown window to choose the audio device (with the top, and pre-selected option, being "<default>").

Try dragging an explorer window of the Artemis directory over to the monitor you want to launch into, and launch the program from there. That should solve your resolution issues at least. Just make sure to launch in full screen windowed to to make it easier to mouse through your setup.

Nope, doesn't help. I double-click on the TV, and Artemis still launches on the regular monitor, with the regular monitor's resolutions. Dragging it back over to the TV and use full-screen windowed still gives it a 1680x1050 window.

Have you tried adjusting the TV resolution to fit the client window? A bit of a pain, but may help get the sizing.

I have. The problem is the TV and my monitors are different aspect ratios. Setting the TV as the primary monitor is my workaround for now. It's an annoying extra step (and has the side effect of moving rearranging everything on my dekstop!), but gets the job done.

The way I've always picked which monitor Artemis is on is to drag the resolution selector window over to the other monitor, then pick my desired resolution, and then click the start game button.
I've done it for as many as three separate instances on three separate monitors all attached to the same PC, and all with different resolutions and aspect ratios.

As for the audio, in theory if you change the Windows default sound device before starting the launcher, it will use the specified device even if you change the default device to something else afterwards. I've never tested that though.

Ooh, that's a good idea on the sound. I'll have to try that.
