Im trying to get my engine to multiple fullscreen windows again (i was on it before, but quit) Im having problems opening up multiple windows. Im getting: Exclusive Mode has been taken by other app or other device on the same adapter. SetCooperativeLevel returns D3DERR_DEVICELOST. im specifing different adapters for each window im opening. if i open a window on adapter 0, then it opens a window on adapter 0, monitor 0. if i open a window on adapter 1 then it opens a window in adapter 1 monitor 1 but when i try to open them both, it gives me the above error. i''ve checked recent posts on this and i can''t make anything out of the code that i found. any have code for this?
