[SOLVED] Overwatch - Can't See Second Monitor


#1

I play Overwatch on a Lenovo Legion Y530-(81FV0015US), and recently got a HP 144hz Gaming Monitor which was on-sale for $200 at Best Buy. For some reason, it only sees the laptop display which only have a max of 120hz (though it only a 60hz panel, but that’s not related). My question is how do I get wine to see the second monitor and use the full refresh rate?

Using AntergosPrime for GPU switching

Temporary work around: Under System Options > Turn off Monitors Except > DP-2(external Monitor)

Figured it out, just set the external monitor as Primary and It’ll allow you to set it @144hz. It still only see the primary monitor, but for now I can use both displays.

Thanks to the guys on Discord to help me figure that out.
