  • [Suggestion]Multiple Monitor Support

    Just a simple idea that I've always wondered why no one has thought about it, why not make use of potential extra monitors? I'm not talking about have a super resolution but the ability to have a secondary(or more) monitor display things such as a scoreboard that others have complained about taking up too much of the screen, game stats(obviously restricted for balance) or even an a kill cam like those found in the CoD series. While you may need to restrict these things for when you are playing in a game, in spectator mode at the very least would be a sweet option as well as LAN events of get together with friends.

    This sounds like a good idea for shoutcasters.

    Generally the directed cam in dota is really good, but you don't want to constantly watch that as a shoutcaster, maybe add an option where they can watch both the normal cam and the directed cam on differen screen, so they can switch on the stream with just a press of a button. Even the beast shoutcasters/camera controllers occasionally miss something.

      I'm all for this, as I have two monitors myself. However, others with just a single monitor may complain that they now have an unfair advantage of having a cluttered UI compared to people with two or more monitors.
