I've got a weird screen resolution (3 monitors linked as a single screen, giving 5760 x 1080 resolution), and it appears the WoW settings is completely broken because of this.  Support couldn't help, only saying they don't support mult-monitor configurations.


I have no trouble playing, and found I could get the graphics settings to the right resolution by editing the preferences.xml file (it's pretty cool stretched across 3 monitors--my FoV is about 135 degrees).  But Many of the settings are rather cryptic--I'd like to make sure the graphics quality as it the highest, and adjust other settings, including possibly changing key bindings.  Like I said, the Settings screen is completely broken for me--I have no way to change the settings other than through a text editor on the preferences.xml file.


Can anyone give me a list of what the various settings are in the preferences.xml file--or at least direct me to a link that might list them?

Put the resolution back to a normal size, adjust your other settings, and then put the resolution back to the three monitor setup. You might also have to change to one monitor, and then back.


Interested to hear if this works.
